So here’s where we mix it up a bit and cheat a little. Usually we choose one thing to eat in each city. This time we chose something for the grown up night out. With so many guides out there on food in San Francisco we took a different approach. Our choice for an enjoyable night out drinking with friends is Pacific Cocktail Haven. A nice cozy bar in downtown. With pleasing aesthetics and good cocktails. Pacific Cocktail Haven makes for a great place to get drinks. 

I tried the “Saffron” an interesting mix of Saffron infused Del Maguey Vida, campari, grilled pineapple and citrus. The “Ninth Ward” was my least favorite drink though sounded interesting. We also had the “City of Dawn” and “Thrilla in Manilla”. With so many options including beer and wine there’s bound to be something for everyone. The only downside were the prices at $13 each cocktail your tab will add up quickly. Then again that’s par for the course in San Francisco, so the bill at the end of the night wasn’t a big surprise. Let us know your favorite drink or something you’d like to try in the comments. Check out the gallery below to see the drinks.

One Thing To Do In Each City: San Francisco “Fort Point”

San Francisco proved a challenging task trying to pick just one thing to do in the city. A city as old as this, is steeped in culture and history. San Francisco’s origins as a port town walking along the piers was a great experience at to be expected. China town had me feeling as if I was in a different country. Fisherman’s wharf while a tourist trap, wasn’t without it’s uniqueness and charm. Though in the end Fort Point stood out the most to me. Fort Point was was planned as the most formidable deterrence America could offer to a naval attack on California during the civil war built between 1853 and 1861. 

Fort Point was was planned as “the most formidable deterrence America could offer to a naval attack on California during the civil war” (NPS.GOV). It was built between 1853 and 1861. History lessons aside the trip to Fort Point is worth the trip alone due to the magnificent views of the Golden Gate Bridge. There are various things to explore in Fort Point itself and best of all entrance is free. It’s a Historic National Park that deserves your attention.
