Hi Kids, isn't it wonderful today? It sure is in our neighborhood. If you ever find yourself down by Yelp HQ, there a few restaurants, bars, and cafes that meet our rigorous Yelp standards, or at least that we frequent. Actually, this is my own list so expect to see the rest of Yelp Team offer up their own suggestions...
For drinks: Varnish, (also a cool art gallery), Ame (at the hotel lobby bar, especially if someone else is buying), Sutter Station (this is the closest you get to the Mos Eisley Cantina in San Francisco, plus they have some, um, "lingerie" nights that must be seen to be believed).
For reviews, and not just reviews, but real ones, from real people: Yelp
That's a good start, shouldn't I be working or something?
