My wife and I were there last month and found that some places like Toranado only take cash, so you should probably should keep a few bucks on you just in case.

Very true, but all those places also have an ATM inside if you dont mind paying the fees. Some that I can think of off the top of my head are Toronado, Zeitgeist, Benders, and Amsterdam Cafe.

Update: first and foremost, thank you all for your suggestions. We ended up going to La Taqueria the night we got in. It was late and we asked our hosts if there was a late night taco joint. They pointed us towards the Castro district. Then we took a nice walk to Elixir Saloon. What a great gem.

The next day we hit up Kates Kitchen in the Haight District. Awesome food. We then went to Golden Gate Park and checed out the Japanese Tea Garden and the rest of the park. IN hindsight, we should have checked out the science museum cuz Iím a HUGE science geek.

That night, we went to Tataki and then to Toronado. Iím spoiled by the sushi there. Chicago has great sushi, but SF sushi is on a whole ínother level! Toronado? Greta beer selection, but a bit too loud for my taste.

The next day we went to Sonoma and Santa Rosa and hit up Russian River. That night we went to Eiji in the Mission district. Better sushi than Tatki IMHO. Then it was off to CervecerŪa de Mateveza. Very interesting concept. The brewer was very nice and hospitable.

The following day, I had my first In N Out burger. It was good, but I donít ge tthe hype. I prefer Fatburger. That night we hit up Humphry Slocombe ice cream. AWESOME!!!!!

I wanted to try Blue Bottle coffee cu I do enjoy my coffee and thought that my chance had come and gone until I saw some at the airport. Man. Good coffee.

Regrets: none. I do want to take another trip there because thereís more that I want to check out. Did I mention the graffiti Clarion alley? Fantastic art.

Once again, thanks for the suggestions!
