San Francisco Accommodations : We actually spent a lot of time trying to decide where to stay while we were in San Francisco. The Visitors Planning Guide (see San Fran attractions entry) showed the different neighborhoods and some of the highlights of each neighborhood. Once we narrowed down the neighborhoods we thought would work for us, we searched the websites comparing prices and amenities.
And while the location was very close to Union Square, I wouldn’t feel safe walking around by myself at night as the pan handlers were very aggressive. Minutes after we checked in we heard a loud BANG out in the street and several minutes after that there were two dozen police officers in the area. I wasn’t worried, the noise didn’t sound like a gunshot, and I remembered that the date was July 3rd, so I figured it was just a firework, which was what the police must have decided also, as they didn’t stay long.
The other reason it's called Mission Pie is because they have a mission, they are guided by a commitment to environmental, social and economic justice. One example is serving Walnut Pie instead of Pecan Pie because walnuts are grown in California while pecans are grown in Georgia and must be shipped to California.Looking for something fun to do?
