San Francisco Travelogue Day #6 (and photos!)

Check out our first batch of photos.

Yesterday we slept in, then mosied over to Mel’s Drive-In, made famous by George Lucas’s movie American Graffiti. The burger was pretty good (not quite top-10 worthy), but the chocolate malt was to die for. I made James promise me we’d go back there again today sometime. We took a leisurely stroll through the Yerba Buena Gardens south of Market, then headed to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. I enjoyed it, but James maintains that the only talent involved in this artwork is duping the public into believing it’s actual art. So that was fun, heh. We wandered around a bit in the neighborhood, which is still up and coming, so it’s an interesting mix of real-life pimps and yacht club snobs.

The highlight of our day was definitely the Alcatraz tour. We took the earlier of the night tours, which was well worth it. We entered just as the inmates did, and our audio tour was surprisingly good. We also got an in-depth tour detailing the famous escape attempts. Very cool. We finished the night with a fancy dinner at the Boudin Sourdough restaurant — much fancier than the cafe, but we’ve already spent so much money on food, what’s a little more, eh?

Today’s our last day, so we’re off to Japantown, and I’m not sure what else.
