Hey guys,

TV SF's food is way better than The Tonga Room fare. Seriously. TV SF also has been running a special of a 3 course meal for $25 w/$5 Mai Tai's.

I'd switch it around: Hitting Trader Sam's around 3:00 on Friday...thus avoiding Friday night traffic in the city, then head to TV SF for happy hour and dinner, then spend the remainder of the evening at the Tonga Room.

Alcatraz tour pier and Fisherman's Wharf are in the same area. On Friday morning, you might want to walk down Nobb Hill, or jump on the cable car down to Union Square shopping area. From there you can take a cable car to within 3 blocks of Fisherman's Wharf.
http://www.sfcablecar.com/routes.html (double check with the concierge to ensure the routes are still correct).

Take the Alcatraz tour, come back, have lunch at the Wharf (dungenous crab, chowder, and sourdough bread yumm!!!) and walk around. If you're really ambitious, you can probably catch a talkie tour in that area. But probably more fun is http://www.allsanfranciscotours.com/body.asp?tour=SFO-CAR01&page=TourDetails.

It's a 5 hour rental, so might be better done on Thursday or Sunday. Anyhow, hope to see ya tomorrow.

Just a suggestion: TV SF has an awesome Happy Hour. If it were me, I'd hit Vics up for HH on Friday, dinner at Tonga Room and then head to Trader Sams. Bamboo Hut will be a zoo on Friday night, so best left for late afternoon Sunday - a perfect pit stop after touring.

Ok.....Plane was delayed 2.5 hours! Security breach at Oakland Airport!!! No car (reservation cancelled after 2 hours!)

We made it to the Fairmont @ 4:30....going to hit the Tonga Room for drinks at 5:15-7ish then figure out how to get to Forbidden Island....

Anyone wanting to connect with us, we'll keep an eye out! And probably check our pm's around 7....

Wow!!! What a fun city!!!! After spending the day riding the cable cars and walking around Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Ghiradelli Square, the San Francisco Shopping Center, Union Square...We made it to S.F. Trader Vic's for happy hour, then took the muni bus to Trad'r Sam (very fun locals bar with a hint of tiki-great scorpion bowls!!!!) then back to Tonga Room for dinner.... The music was exactly wha you'd expect from a lounge type group that performs on a boat in the middle of a lake inside a restaurant while it rains!!! The food was good and the staff was excellent! Everyone from the waiters to the manager bent over to make sure we had a great time!

Today (Saturday) we're off to Trader Vic's Emeryville, Vic's final resting spot, the Kona Club, The Conga Lounge and then maybe back to the Forbidden Island...And mix in a little thrift shopping during the day. Again, anyone wanting to meet up, give me a call!

You guys should go to the Kona Club late on Sat. night. Then at closing time head on over to the cemetery! Grab a couple of Ice Blocks, and ride like the wind down the hills! I think Longs down the road is open?

Happy sledding!!

We didn't have time for sledding this trip! But it sounds like fun!!! We did raise a dry Mai-Tai glass in Trader Vic's honor!
