any updates for this thread? I just found out that I'm headed to Oakland next month and I plan to eat well! Incanto just happens to be having their annual nose to tail dinner the night we arrive so I'm working on getting into that but any other suggestions (of any kind of food) is welcome.

Deanne and I have not been in a couple of years but still hold the city high in our esteem of interesting, wonderful, walking destinations.  I have mentored a few folks on trips out there in the last few years but our/my information may be getting rusty.  I know a few places have gone by the wayside since we were there, but the general rules still apply as my DIL's sister was out there a few months ago and the good places are still the good places..

General rules:

Get a several-day pass that includes all public transportation and a map.  There are many foldable pocket-size maps that show all of the public transportation and stops.

Go to the Ferry building
Go to Swan Oyster Depot
Oakland is off of my personal chart
subscribe to a local food-blog or message board that has current info.
Read over the old posts/lists here they are mostly still valid.

Here's a link to BART info: http://bit.ly/1aflyS

Here's a link to MUNI info: http://bit.ly/16VB0M

Here's a link to caltrain info:http://www.caltrain.com/site3.aspx


GG>-  I hope these old links work..

Bay Wolf in Oakland always gets good reviews, but I've not been:  http://www.baywolf.com/index.html

And, of course, on that side of the bay you are not too far from Chez Panisse.

Went to Mission Chinese Food for 2nd time a couple of months ago, Danny is now in the kitchen at the NY branch.  It was still good, but not as thrilling (or cheap) as the first time.

Planning a two weeker, out to San Fran, then down to LA, and end up in San Diego..  Flying from San Fran to LA but driving down to San Diego.   I want to hit some old familiar places and go up to Napa for a day in San Francisco.  Anyone have any new and exciting places for us to try ?

I love to wander and SF is great city for wandering.  I discovered the Cow Hollow neighborhood on my last trip.  I think y'all will like it too.  This place looks really cool:

Don't forget to get your fill of In-N-Out 4X4's Animal Style of course and the Animal Style Fries. Mebbe even a Strawberry Shake, or if you are in the Baldwin Park area, stop by the Company store, right off I-10 at Francisquito Ave.
Or Hodad's down in Ocean Beach or the Newport Ave location in the Diego area for a killer burger.

Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

Beer is why I get up every afternoon.
