One of my besties, Shawn, came to visit for Labor Day Weekend. I'd been wearing him down for awhile and finally he gave in to his inner yearning and my outward insistance and he bought a ticket to San Francisco.
We like to view every one of Shawn's visit as a trial run, or SF interview, if you will. We try to show him up-and-coming neighborhoods, great restaurants, and the overall happy-go-lucky, fabulously fun aspects of life in this city (and we don't speak of fog or rent payments).
