So, I am staying in Union Square at the Donatello. Great reviews on Trip Advisor.

I presume we will just walk around Union Square and the Pier for our limited stay.

Anyone want to make a good dinner suggestion for a family with teen boys? Down and dirty hole in the wall is preferred, someplace frequented by locals. Ethnic is always good. Seafood works too. My kids wants a good bowl of Cioppino, but not for a second mortgage.
Oops. Posted before reading. Chinatown for some weird good food, I like the warf for food myself. Touristy, but lots to eat.

Thanks Uno.

With only one night in SF, I am pretty limited in my options.

Lots to eat is always good.

That whole wharf area (Pier 51?) Is nothing but food. Lots to eat.

Just got back from Oahu. Saw whales everywhere, but really saw a ton (at least 50) from a hike we did up a lighthouse trail.

The Sheraton right on Waikiki has not one but two Peets coffee's in there. I spent almost every morning and evening there drinking coffee and using their loungers out by the pool(used the pool a little too)

Learn to surf right in the huge crowd at waikiki. Everyone is a beginner there so they have no surfing etiquette required....just mow people over its cool

Thats it for that.
