SF is... alive with the sound of music!!
Who's your favorite quintessential local character? Parker Gibbs. He's always got something silly to say about something and everything.
Where's your go-to date place? The Make-Out Room – because it's home away from home.
Where's your secret spot? McLaren Park pond. It's a nice quiet place to walk around and take my dog swimming.
What's your favorite under-the-radar SF restaurant? Cordon Bleu Vietnamese Restaurant – very cheap and good. It's been there on California and Polk for years.
What local merchant have you been meaning to check out? Foggy Notion out in the avenues – looks great and my friend Alissa Anderson owns that shop.
What would you change about SF? Less crazy wind on Bernal Hill.
