San Francisco Site Seeing

The week after 4th of July hubby, the boy and I played tourists.  We drove to San Francisco to site see.  We went to Flax Art store because I wanted to check it out.  We went to Ike’s Place for a sandwich because the boy has been wanting to go there for a while.  It is a hole in the wall place with really good sandwiches.  At lunch time the line is always out the door so we decided to go later in the afternoon after the lunch rush.  I ordered the Tim Lincecum which is ham, turkey, bacon, Havarti cheese and avocado.  I got in on a gluten free bun.  The boy got a Harrison Barnes which is fried chicken, cheese.  All the sandwiches come with chips and a caramel apple sucker.  We took the sandwiches to Twin Peaks because there is 360 degree views of the city.  But unfortunately the fog decided to roll in so we only got peek a boo views of the views.  It gets really windy up there but it was really windy and cold there on Monday. 

On Friday we rode Bart to Powell Street. Westfield San Francisco Centre is near the Powell Street Bart station.  It has 5 floors with lots of shops and food.  We walked along Market street.  We went to the Converse store which is cool.  There is a display of red, white and blue converse lined up on the wall in the  shape of an American flag.  There was a cool converse chandelier hanging from the ceiling above the staircase.  The seats were painted with skeletons.  Pretty cool store.  
We checked out Nike Town which is huge!  It has 6 floors.  On the main floor there is a football display with the San Francisco 49ers logo.  On one of the staircases there was  a cool floating dunk mural of Lebron James.  Each floor has different Nike gear.  There were glass balls hanging over the cash register area.  We checked out Union Square.  
The boy wanted to go to Rasputin records so we made a stop there.  They have 2 floors then you take an elevator up to upper floors.  The store is near the cable car turn around so we got to see the cable cars lining up to turn around.  There is a lot of construction going on in Union Square.  So Post Street in front of Nike Town was all torn up.  The boy also wanted to go to a Skate shop so we hopped on Muni to take it to Laguna Street where the shop was.  After that we went to John’s Grill which is an historic restaurant.  They have three floors.  The second floor is the Maltese Falcon room with a display case with the Maltese Falcon and the Dashiell Hammett book and some other things.  I had a really good Dungeness crab Louis, the boy had Fettucine Constantine and hubby had the clam chowder.  After lunch we hopped on Bart and went home.
