Hmm, within walking distance if you want to do the standard, tourist things you could walk to Union Square, Chinatown, or North Beach.

Just past North Beach is Fisherman's Wharf and ferries to Alcatraz.

If you have an afternoon free, I could pick you up and take you to Napa/Sonoma for winetasting at several wineries.

thanks, that sounds like a promising opportunity perhaps.
might work on the day in or the day out, not sure it will work on the middle 2 days.  will have to check final technical schedule and see what time block are more free than others.

couldn't find much nearby there hotelwise that fits our allowed GSA reimbursements, but yelp+orbitz+tripadvisor all together ID'd one place as being pretty well reviewed.

If you get a chance, try Swan's Oyster Depot for lunch. The crab louie salad is awesome. It's a little spendy, but not as bad as going to a place on Pier 39 for a whole steamed crab.

If you can get up to North Beach before noon or so, try this place for some amazing focaccia. Get a brick of the pizza focaccia and hang out in Washington Square. The close once they sell out, and they're usually sold out by early afternoon.

I've been meaning to try this place too. The reviews seem hit or miss though.

Get a cab.

Stride the same fairways that Teddy Roosevelt, Arnold *goshdarn* Palmer and Joe Dimaggio used to. See the Golden Gate Bridge the way god intended, or don't since it will be foggy as *feces* in March.

(I got to see Dimaggio's locker. It's still kept empty with his nameplate on it. Didn't see if Marilyn's undergarments were there, but you KNOW they have been)

Just *goshdarn* do it!

PS: North Beach is good. North Beach is where Michael Weiner was arrested after threatening some folks with a gun.

You're staying EXACTLY in the area I've always stayed when out on SF chautauqua, which usually have involved deliberations and so forth centered around the convention center

It has been a while, but I remember it mostly as an endlessly fascinating neighborhood, within walking distance to just about whatever you need.  Yes, I've played Presido, took a cab.  Too bad you aren't coming a few weeks later when the baseball season would be in full swing.

it's probably too late to take you up on this (and I do appreciate the offer!!!) , but I finally started making my schedule final,  and Tuesday late afternoon might work.   if that doesn't work, maybe just a meet for a quick drink somewhere around my hotel could work.

PM me .
