North Beach Days of Summer

On a hot summer day, 5 reasons to head to North Beach

North Beach truly has it all, and this list focuses on lunch.  I guess that is because it is lunch time for me.  I think I will get a slice of my own advice.

  1. Have lunch with a friend at any of many excellent sidewalk restaurants. 
  2. Walk with an iced mocha late' in a beautiful old neighborhood.
  3. You will find awesome live music, just about any time you are not supposed to be at work.
  4. North Beach is famous for its Italian restaurants and pizza.
  5. After that awesome lunch, late' or pizza, take a walk on Fishermens' Wharf.
