SF is... the best place in the country to eat a different delicious meal every day of the week for under $15.
Who's your favorite quintessential local character? Brad Newsham, the taxi driver who drives a green Prius cab, wrote a published travel book, and organizes 1,000 person protests on the beach in his free time.
What's your go-to date place? Delfina Pizzeria on 18th between Dolores and Guerrero. The warm olives with citrus peel and spices are a revelation.
Where do you go to relax and get away from it all? Kabuki Springs & Spa in Japantown. The steam room! The cold plunge! The cucumber lotion! Ahhh...
If you could change one thing about San Francisco, what would it be? Why does it have to be so hard to find a taxi around here, people?
What's your favorite San Francisco institution? The Alemany Farmer's Market. It's hands down the best place for cheap delicious produce. Where else can get ten kiwis for a dollar, do some people-watching, and then reward yourself with tamales?
