A Night Out In San Francisco

When thinking about San Francisco, certain attractions come to mind. The Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, and the infamous cable cars are a few iconic sites that come to mind. But what about San Francisco after the sun goes down. Did you know that the city comes to life with adventures, sights, and sounds not available during the day?

Here are four things that are a must-do after the sun melts into the bay.

1. Vantigo's City Lights Tour

Beer and wine are included in this city of lights tour which means no one under 21-years-old may participate. Taking the Vantigo's tour on a clear night allows you to experience the infamous views of the Bay City while also enjoying the moon and stars above. The tour moves through Union Square, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, the Marina and, fog permitting, the Twin Peaks, to name a few. During the two-and-a-half hour tour, you'll learn about the history of San Francisco, culture through the years, and how earthquakes affect the city, all while enjoying complimentary beer and wine.

2. Alcatraz at Night

The night tour is the most thorough tour of the prison and the Bay surrounding it.  A narrated boat tour begins the evening as it trolls around the rocky island before docking at the front gate. From there you can enter the prison and begin the tour of your choice. One of the most popular is "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cellhouse Tour", which is offered only at night. Not only can you experience what it was like to be a prisoner on this isolated island, but it is also a fabulous place to capture breathtaking sunsets through the lens of a camera.

3. San Francisco Pub Crawl

The Nob Hill Pub Crawl is not to be missed as a night-time activity. Beginning in Union Square, you will visit three legendary San Francisco Bars and one VIP nightclub. The crawls bring people together from all over the world and often sell out, so book early. With your ticket, you will receive a party host, drink and shot specials and best of all you will never have to wait in line. They even through in a $10 LYFT ticket so you can ride home safely after partying your night away.

4. Ghost Hunting in the Bay City

Choose one of the many Ghost Hunting expeditions for a tour that will leave you looking over your shoulder. The San Francisco Ghost Hunt meets in front of the Queen Anne Hotel for a three-hour adventure of ghost stories and possible ghostly encounters. This is the original supernatural walking tour. Reservations are not required, and prices are reasonable for a family fun adventure. However, it is not recommended kids under eight take this tour.

When taking advantage of the San Francisco nightlife, stay near the cable car line for easy access to the whole city. There are many fantastic budget friendly hotels in the area. If you stay near Union Center you will definitely be close to all the action and finding a way back to your hotel will be easy.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
