    Usually I get this message here in Germany because of GEMA issues. It's a nice song by Prince „Controversy” (1981).

    I tried to find it elsewhere but failed. I did find a few comments about Prince that indicated he didn't like it when his music was posted on the internet.

    Perbacco is FANTASTIC. Just went a few weeks ago. The appetizer sampler of different house meats was unreal.

    http://www.perbaccosf.com/

    State Bird Provision is also supposed to be really good/popular, but I haven't been yet.

    http://statebirdsf.com/provisions/

    If you are into dim-sum, then you have to go to Great Eastern. There's even pictures outside of Obama eating there lol.

    http://www.greateasternsf.com/

    Lastly, for Sunday brunch, I would definitely recommend Farmer Brown. Upscale soul food (buffet available, as well as bottomless mimosas) with live music.

    Feel free to PM me for more specific suggestions!

    I find his rigid attitude regarding this matter comprehensible. Just like perfumers (like Tauer) are saying splits are destroying the artwork.
    On the other hand I think an artist has to let go of his or her creation. Quite a dilemma.

    Thanks so much for the suggestions. I'm really excited for the trip! Looking forward to exploring San Francisco.

    I think the girl wants to go to Farmer Brown which sounds good to me. I was suggested Slanted Door for dinner with a view.

    Never been to Slanted Door, but it looks awesome. I don't think you can go wrong - SF is one of the best cities you can go to for food. And I'm sure you will enjoy Farmer Brown... other than great food it's got a really fun vibe. The band that does the live music is incredible - the best way I can describe it is they do smooth, contemporary, loungey interpretations of popular hip hop/r&b/top40 songs.

    Also, if you are planning on doing any sniffing, here's a great guide I found somewhere (probably here):

    http://anotherperfumeblog.com/2011/0...san-francisco/

    Just about everything you could want to sniff is within short walking distance of Union Square. Have fun and enjoy your trip!

    Perfect, thanks a lot! We're staying right in Union Square so we're close to everything. Farmer Brown looks awesome, nothing like anything we've got here in Chicago...those are definitely the places I want to go while visiting. Excited to see what the Bay Area food scene has to offer. I probably won't get to much sniffing as we have many similar options here in Chicago (the gf does want to buy a Diptyque thought so we may stop by) but the map looks great. Many thanks, the girlfriend is already talking about the cheesy grits at Farmer Brown lol.

    No prob! One more thing - make sure you get a reservation for Farmer Brown because they get really busy during brunch hours.

    Agree! Elephants are so amazing. Too bad they take up so much space. They just need to be left alone.

    Glad you liked. I once lost my cat. He'd apparently climbed into a truck. When I found him, he was 1/2 mile away, across a busy street. I put an ad in the paper and a lady called. She said he'd been hanging around trying to get fed. All she had was dog food. She felt bad she couldn't invite him in because of her dog. He was there for a few days. When I went there he came running over to me.

    At least that had a happy ending.

    Hoping all in the San Diego/Carlsbad area are safe from the fires in that area. It must be miserable to have to deal with the smoke and ashes in this awful heat, although apparently much of it is blowing out to the ocean.

    Yes, I wish them all the best. We had 2&1/2 inches of rain the other day. Weather is nutty!
