Free Gold Watch is thee place. Great location with *tons* of bars, food, second hand clothing places, like 100 feet from Amoeba Records. It’s in the Haight. It’s a great/awful touristy hood. And literally across the street from Golden Gate Park. Call ahead if you are going to go by after dinner because they might close, but Friday/Saturday, who knows? I’m there late all the time on weekends. They have Dialed In, Iron Maiden, and even JJP POTC (proto). It’s the best bank. Disclosure: I operate my games there. But I wouldn’t if it didn’t rule. I ain’t got time for that shit.
Alamo Drafthouse is the above-mentioned theater. Small but crazy selection of games in a theater. TNA. TBL. Great bar. Non pinheads can see a movie. Ha. It’s in the Mission, a real... neighborhood. With, again, a bazillion things to do.
Seriously though, those places are the best, in the best locations.
