Well if you're free tonight about 10 there will be a bunch of people meeting up since it is so nice out, look under CA - Bay Area meet, tonight it is in Milpitas which is about 45 min south of SF proper. There are a ton of local e46 and BMW owner out and about.

That said, as milpitas meet is fun but not that scenic (other than the cars, and their owners of course, lol) there are A LOT of cool places to see. If you're up for a drive I'd recommend heading over the golden gate up to Mt Tamalpais or the Muir Woods, gorgeous state parks both, or for a longer outing you can drive up to Napa or Sonoma, it's only about an hour there without traffic (which is at its worst weekdays from 7-10 and about 4-7, and it's REALLY BAD so don't get caught in it and waste your vaca). And once you get there you likely won't want to leave if you love either wine or twisty roads though not to be recommended simultaneously.

You can also hop on the PCH rt 1 going north or south and catch amazing road and views, heading south you'll eventually come to Santa Cruz, a cool funky beach town (about an hour or so down) and another 30 mins down the road is Monterray/Carmel, known for its beautiful shores and amazing car culture. The aquarium is pretty great if that's at all your thing.

Touristy stuff in the city is union sq and pier 39 but both are pretty cool, I'd recommend the museums in golden gate park if you're into art or the natural sciences (deyoung and Academy of Sciences, respectively). The Giants are in town and AT&T is worth the cost even at its current post works series inflated peak. Of all MLB ballparks I've been to, and that's about 20, and even my home spot of Fenway in Boston AT&T is still the best IMHO.

Lots of great restaurants and clubs just go to opentable yelp or SF gazette for info you kind of can't go wrong eating in town unless you hit the tourist joints down on the pier - which still aren't bad.

If there's a particular type if food you like fire away and can make recommendations ...

Have a great time and enjoy the city I'd offer to meet up but chasing three kids will have me occupied until work again on Monday, good luck!

The funny thing having lived in places like NYC and London that have every bit as many gay peeps as SF is that SF doesn't really have that much more its that no one feels the need to hide it or diminish it so actually it's less visible in some ways, the culture just blends. I mean the Castro is the Castro, but so is Chelsea or Boston's South End (lol that always cracks me up, how ironic).

What I find is that people in places like Texas or Atalnta that are totally hung up on it focus on it more which actually makes a BiGGER more noticeable thing of something like Pride Day...

Personally I kinda have to wonder a little bit about anyone who can't wait to play the gay card as soon as someone mentions someplace... Clearly it's a subject that is top of mind to them, I mean, the last thing I think of when someone mentions someplace to me is where gay neighborhoods are or that they're even there... Just kinda makes you wonder a little, and then theres the whole naming of oneself after a Roman gladiator... ill say no more...that is all.

Total joke man, I'm not phobic at all. You read WAY too much into it. The more gay men there are in the world, the more my chances with women increase (from microscopic to miniscule at least)! San Fran just has that rep, and that video was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the thread title. That was a damn funny movie.

I wholeheartedly agree with the more (model looking) hmos out there the better since thy will serve to frustrate hot chicks who will revert to avg looking straight guys like most of us...
