Night in San Francisco

A June 2005 trip to San Francisco by KOCO

Quote: A 5-year anniversary celebration brought us to downtown San Francisco. We dropped off our toddler for a sleepover and raced to the MUNI system to get downtown for a late night with no following morning cares to think about.

Hotel Triton - A Kimpton Hotel

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel | "Hotel Triton"

Quote:
At first glance, my husband was not thrilled with our room, but he later changed his mind as he came around to my thinking. I have wanted to stay in this hotel for many years, as it is a hip, artsy establishment with a European flare. He didn't like the red-light elevator but did feel great in the purple elevator. As you walk to your room, there is much to admire, as the hallways are decorated with many photos and pieces of art. I especially liked a black-and-white photo of a boxer that hung near our room. Each room is decorated differently, with careful attention to the art that adorns the walls of each room. The furniture is all angles and curves with soothing water colors. The room has a lot of spa...Read More

Scala's Bistro

Restaurant

Quote:
Reservations are not necessary, but you can make them to beat the rush of theatre goers. After the theatre there are very few places to eat. In fact, Scala's is it for a few block radius around the theatres. Possibly the Sardi's of S.F., you are likely to sit next to the stars of a play! Such was our case as we sat next to Esai Morales of NYPD Blue fame, and Jaime Camil making his Broadway debut in The Mambo Kings.

Golden Gate Theatre

Attraction

Quote:
Golden Gate is one of the older theatres in San Francisco, with a large art deco foyer, detailed ceiling, and grand staircase you really sense the history. We were able to see the premiere of the broadway company in The Mambo Kings, the musical. Usually in S.F. we get the "best-of-broadway" alternate casts, so this was a treat. With a large latino group in attendance, there was much singing and dancing on the stage and the aisles. A wonderfully historical musical tracing the immigration of the Castillo brothers to America and the popularity of their music.

Viansa Winery

Attraction | "Enoteca Viansa Wine tasting"

Quote:
Viansa, a popular winery in Napa, has a wine tasting room in the city. It has all of the comfort and ambience of the winery without the drive. A great place to start your evening with a glass of their red Athena Dolcetto and a plate of delicacies such as olives, artisan cheeses, and breads.
