San Francisco is what I like to call my home base. I always come back to it. As SF artist, Paul Madonna, said to me once, “I like to say San Francisco is not a jealous lover because you can leave for two years and it will welcome you back,” and I couldn’t have said it better myself.
San Francisco is a very good home to artists and chefs. We celebrate art in several forms, whether it’s street art or The Academy of Sciences. Either way, it is a place where everyone can find something that appeals to them. This goes for food as well. There are always new restaurants popping up in all of our neighborhoods, but each one seems to achieve greatness above all the others, and this can be appreciated by its people who really love to eat. I also love going outside the city limits just a bit to crack oysters and pop into artisan food shops in the smaller coastal towns.
The most obvious, but important, thing about San Francisco is that it is an incredibly beautiful city. Our parks have staggering beauty, one of 1,017 acres. Our views of the bay and city lights make you never want to leave. They make you want to go out and meet the other people who love living here, embrace a liberal way of life, and appreciate how lucky they are to live in such a city. It’s been the home of Ansel Adams, Jerry Garcia, John Steinbeck and Robert Frost who have all pulled inspiration from these grounds.
