I saw the Tibet exhibit at the Asian Art Museum last weekend and it was fantastic. Buddhalicious!

We would also have to visit SFMOMA, which is across the street from where the Maori exhibit will be. The Cartoon Art Museum is also in the neighborhood.

Next to City lights is Vesuvio (a bar)http://www.vesuvio.com/ and across from City Lights is Specs Adler Musuem (actually a bar!) and Tosca Cafe(another bar).
http://www.worldsbestbars.com/city/san-francisco/tosca-cafe-san-francisco.htm All four are San Francisco institutions!!! If you hit all of those bars, it'll be a good thing you are taking BART!

You can't help but wonder if that guy is from Tiki Central?? Here's another picture...



A canoe of Maori warriors from New Zealand paddle past a pier and toward shore at Aquatic Park at dawn in San Francisco, on Aug. 4. The Maori, who were met by Native American Ohlone tribe members, made the visit to kick off the opening of one of the largest collections of Maori art to be shown in the U.S. at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and to encourage Americans to visit the Pacific island nation.
