Why I love San Francisco!!
This town takes a while to grow on you, but once it gets in your blood, it's like really good vicodin (just ask Rush Limbuagh) -- you're basically hooked! Where else do they put snow on Fillmore Street and let people ski jump? (See photo). Where else can you go to a great show like Teatro Zinzanni and have a big guy in drag stick your face directly into his cleavage? (See other photo.) We've got the Giants, the 49ers (which isn't really all that much to brag about) great theater, (we recently saw Martin Short's one-man show -- terrible -- and a play called Killer Joe at the Magic Theater in Fort Mason -- shocking and memorable), amazing restaurants, the Golden Gate bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Japantown, the Marina, there are all kinds of art galleries and museums, the music scene, the hippies in the Haight, the gays in the Castro, the Mexicans in the Mission -- it's all here and it's all happening in paradise. I lived in San Jose for almost three decades, and I will always have a soft spot for the South Bay, but my heart is now in San Francisco, the incredible city by the bay!
If you want to go see Teatro Zinzanni, which I HIGHLY recommend, their web site is: www.zinzanni.org. To find out what great shows are happening at the Magic Theater at Fort Mason, visit: www.magictheatre.org.
