Perfect timing for this thread! I'll be going to SF for the first time on Sunday. I'll be in the Financial District for some training.

If you all were moving out of the state, what are the three things/places you would eat before you do? I'll do Yelp and Tripadvisor, but nothing like some good GAF advice for foodies.

Anyways, grew up in San Mateo County, specifically Millbrae. I haven't lived there since the 90's so every time I come back to visit it seems more and more foreign to me...

Strangely wouldn't mind a post-Super Bowl meet-up in the Bay. Part of me wonders how many of us it would take to demolish the Kitchen Sink challenge at the San Francisco Creamery in Walnut Creek.

Monterey is a great city, love visiting there and Santa Cruz.

I had 8 friends at it and some of them were down for the count before we even finished. I, of all people, was the last one eating everything up.

In my opinion, Penny Ice Creamery > Marianne's but Penny's flavors rotate everyday depending on what they make and what's available.
I like visiting Santa Cruz, but I'm not fond of living here. It's too laid back for me and there are too many tourist trap shops. I normally go over the hill every weekend to visit my fiance and go out for food that isn't burgers or pizza.

That was the main problem when I was going to UCSC, I really felt like I was truly in a bubble. It wasn't until I had my car that I spent most of my time over the hill and was free to actually reconnect with civilization that wasn't "college town" living.

Superbowl weekend is gonna be insane, but I have a huge ass tv to watch it on. Though I might be tempted to check out the game at one of the local movie theater's that's gonna be showing the game on the big screen. Or a bar depending on the crowd. I don't go to SJ or Oaktown bar's you're likely to end up with something happening to ya.

I'm a bayarea transplant, I came from across the pacheco pass and never looked back. Never in a million year's did I think I would get out from the san joaquin valley and it's horribly oppressive summers. Now if the mood catch's me I can just hop on the 17 and go to Santa Cruz. Or if I feel adventurous go to napa/sonoma area. There's so much to do and lots of stuff to see. And in the few year's I've been here I keep finding things to surprise me.

If we talking bfast in the city you should try Red's Java house. There's nothing like having a chorizo and egg bfast at the base of the bay bridge. Whilst drinking an "anchorchino" at 7am hearing all the honking of pissed off motorist.

Any place that uses liquid nitrogen to make icecream is awesome! Cold Stone Creamery had it all wrong. I'm gonna have to find this place and get me some.

If you want another good local bay area ice cream try three twin's. I love the "Dad's Cardamom" it's such a strange flavor but it tastes delish.

I lived in Alameda for 3 years. I met my wife there. Loved Alamed, except that it was very close to some of the shittiest parts of Oakland and they'd sometimes come over and cause trouble. Not to mention the fact that it always seemed like Oakland was look for a reason to riot. Though, my statement is a tiny bit sweeping as Oakland is big as hell. Once I moved away from the Bay Area, I started to miss it a lot. There is so much to see and do their, especially if you like arts, music, beer, wine, etc.

I keep telling myself to make it out there, but i'll end up at some fried chicken and waffle place instead.

Humphry Slocombe aint so bad either, but I've only had their Vietnamese Iced Coffee flavor and banana flavor.

Dear god do I miss Fenton's. I use to work in Oakland and at times the entire office would skip out on getting real food for lunch and we'd go to Fenton's instead. I also miss Sushi House in Alameda. Their bay scallop roll is heavenly.
