One week to go!

Arriving in Oakland Fri. 10:45. Staying at Marriott Courtyard on second street, Alcatraz on Sat. at 11:45 and leaving Sunday at 3:00pm.

Ok, here's what I would like to do. I just need a little help in scheduling and transpo.

Ferry building, North Beach, Fishermans Wharf, China town, of course the bridge, Union square, Haight Ashbury. Any help on how and when to do these things would be greatly appreciated. Would love to go to Sausalito but not sure if we can squeeze it in. Not much for the night life so would like to do all during the daylight hours and perhaps some neighborhood pubs for the evening.

breakfast near the hotel location is a little sparse, unless you dine at the hotel. There's a bagel place on Mission at 2nd St open Saturday at 9am, walk down Folsom to Embarcadero then towards the Bay Bridge, you will hit Reds Java House opem at 9am as well, pier side for breakfast or quick inexpensive lunch. Neighborhood pubs include Thristy Bear on Howard at New Montgomery or Katie Obrien on Howard at 2nd next to the parking lot.

If you're going to be by the Wharf, you might want to check out the "Buena Vista Cafe" on the corner of Hyde and Beach Sts., at the cable car turn around, for one of their famous Irish coffees. . . . And in Haight/Ashbury the "People's Cafe" and the "Squat and Gobble Crepery" on Haight St.. . . good eats!

Just be sure to make reservations ahead of time to visit Alcatraz, because it frequently sells out!!

sleepsurveyor, do you know if it frequently sells out during the off-season too -- particularly between Christmas and New Years?
