While weekends in San Francisco often involve large crowds, long lines, and plenty of tourists the city takes on a different look during the week. Everything moves a little slower, the sun shines a little brighter, and you begin to feel like the city is all yours. For those mornings when you wake up in need of a day off, consider these options to surround yourself with the things that made you fall in love with San Francisco in the first place.
If you can manage to convince your friends to take a day off of work, consider driving up north and making a visit to Hog Island Oyster Company. Call ahead to reserve a table by the water, pack a picnic basket and soak in the sun as you spend the afternoon shucking your own oysters, drinking wine, and spending some much needed quality time with friends.
