Going to San Fran with my friend for a day. Next tuesday night/wednesday.

We're staying at the Handlery around Union Square. Can you recommend a place for late night dinner/drinks near the area?

After dinner we're prob gonna be wandering around finding stuff to do depending on the time. Any advice on places to avoid?

Aye, any recommendations for a good tailor in san francisco?

Preferably near san bruno, but it doesn't really matter.

i needed a vacation, the depressing uk winter has me yearning for warmer climes so i booked a trip to sf.

anyways, im particularly interested in eating - esp mexican places, street food and coffee. Can anybody vouch for the choices from this article?

please add any other recommendations.

also, any weird counter-culture/hippie recommendations would be much appreciated.

i am flying to SF tomorrow and I'm staying at alexis park hotel in the tenderloin. i am going with a friend of mine and we are both using bikes as our main transportation. is the tenderloin as dangerous as people say it is? will we be straight riding our bikes to taqueria cancun or el farolitos at 12am tomorrow night? i just booked the hotel not really thinking of checking to see if the area was dangerous. we are both 20 year old guys btw. sorry if i sound like a puss. thanks!

Hai, guiz. I'm moving to SF for college and was just wondering how everyone gets around? Car?, BART?, etc. Would it be smart to bring a car or no? Thanks in advance

You could bring a car, parking is scarce, you'd probably be on bart/bike most of the time though.

Depends on where you plan to live. Are you attending San Francisco State, if so parking isn't impossible around that area (but still difficult). But more than likely you'll be riding plenty of BART and MUNI trains.

Ah i see, yeah you can buy a monthly muni pass ($75ish) that you can use unlimited for a whole month. As for BART you can buy BART value passes for any amount you want up to $200 or something like that.

but there instead of buying separate passes for each transportation system, you can buy passes through something called clipper card, it basically loads a bunch of transit passes and/or money onto a plastic card. Read more about it here https://www.clippercard.com/ClipperWeb/index.do

Warning though, transportation in SF can get expensive. I travel from South SF to Downtown SF, back and forth everyday for work, and i spend close to $200 bucks a month.

Yea, I remember BART being especially expensive. I live on campus and such so transportation is not a problem, but I have some friends that live in the Sunset District. Would you happen to know if it's possible to get there on foot? I only have some skateboards right now to get around and will bring my bike later on. Thanks, again
