# Neat Places in Frisco

#### TheStatutoryApe

So tomorrow I am leaving on vacation to Frisco. When I first get there I will be meeting a friend at the Mission and going to a place called Amnesia for gypsy jazz(?) then possibly The Make Out Room where a friend of hers is playing. I will be staying in Oakland with another friend of mine but she will be working Thursday afternoon and I'll be on my own. So far I have no other plans.

Can anyone think of any good places to go to in Frisco?

Go down to the Marina Green and watch the stunt kite flyers. It's almost Kite Festival time. Stunt kites are a BLAST!! I used to fly a set of six. (I HAVE flown a set of 25 but they dang near picked me up and dumped me into the SF Bay!!! My friends had to hang on the the belt loops of my jeans to keep me on the ground!!)

Pier 39 is fun (sometimes they have kite flyers out in front, too). Ghirardelli Square - the whole Wharf is fun...

Take a drive out to Meir Woods,its not far, accross the Golden Gate and take a walk in the giant redwoods, you'll pass the Pier on the way! Stop for a bite to eat in Sausalito on your way back!

I play the radio really loud on the Bay Bridge, it helps me keep my mind off of being squished by it.

Thank you both!

Tsu, you must really like kites.

I really do. Stunt kites are SO much fun. I like to fly them about a foot off the ground while the dogs at the Green chase their tails.

I think you should go see the exploratorium (lotsa cool stuff)

#### juvenal

I don't think anyone in SF calls it Frisco though.

ABSOLUTELY the Exploratorium!! How could I have forgotten THAT??

I don't think anyone there calls it Frisco, either. When I lived there, everyone got pissed if you called it "Frisco". It's "The City".

Also - check out Telegraph Ave in Berkeley or the Upper Haight in SF. There are Amoeba Records there, and other assorted shops. (There's an Amoeba in Hollywood too).

Get some really cheap takeout dim sum from Dick Lee's Pastries in Chinatown. 777 Jackson. I recommend the roast pork buns. If you're in the Chinatown area, you can also head up to City Light Books and North Beach (the Little Italy of SF). Or you could head down to the Union Square area, but the shopping there is more conventional and pricey. (Actually that might be where you start if you take the BART).
