Already on my list is the Ferry building, Filmore Street, Golden Gate Bridge, Drinks at the Mark and Fishermans Wharf.

Ride a cable car, visit golden gate park, hop on and off bus tour, shopping in union square, pier 39 in fishermans wharf then walk to the ferry buliding.

Grande hyatt hotel in union square has a fab resturant at the top which has fantastic views of San Francisco. Well worth a visit. You can go for a drink here, bring your camera!

Depending on the time of your visit how about watching baseball?

San Fran is a fantastic city. 5 days is recommended for first time visitors.

Go do things that you wouldn't be able to back home, and to make best use of your time, group activities geographically so you don't end up criss-crossing the city and spending a lot of time in transit - check out Chinatown for dim sum lunch and North Beach; go see Fort Point at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge; try some regional food - pacific crab and sourdough bread, cheeses, wines. You could eat around the world in San Francisco which is one of the great food destinations in the U.S.
