Where I stayed
Arrived at the hotel. The poor bellboy did not quite know what to do with all of our luggage, but was very good. The hotel's amazing. We are on the 27th floor. The lifts go up outside the building, which means you leave your tummy behind every time. Fantastic view of Union Square and the city.
Dropped the car off :( and then headed out to explore San Francisco. A judge has last night overturned a ban on same sex marriages so great time to be in San Fran!!
We explored the massive shopping centre close to the hotel, but resisted the urge to buy anything. Back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We made the fatal mistake (see tomorrow.....) of going to the hotel bar first for a drink and meeting the barman and hearing about his amazing cocktails: we promised to return.
We went for dinner at Foreign Cinema http://www.foreigncinema.com/. Fantastic place, which is in an old cinema. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is fantastic with foreign films played on the walls. A few more wines later we finished dinner and decided to have a night cap in the attached bar, then back to the hotel bar for the promised nightcap cocktail. The cocktail was out of this world. There were a couple of guys in the bar that had been doing a similar trip so was interesting to hear their experiences.
The bar thankfully shut at 1.30am and more thankfully all bars shut at 2am in San Fran: we did try to locate one........
Off to bed we headed.
