Day 1 - San Francisco


Get a breath of fresh air on your lunch break at the adorable South Park, located in the heart of SoMa’s Multimedia Gulch. Grab a gourmet salad or sandwich to go from Caffe Centro and chow down on a park bench, or head indoors for an upscale meal at French eatery South Park Café. After 5pm, head to the hip 111 Minna Gallery for happy hour cocktails served in a gallery featuring local artists and DJ’s, followed by an elegant Mexican dinner at Maya (their guacamole sampler, lobster tacos, and margaritas featuring top-shelf tequila are highly recommended).
