We first went to Hayes Valley, a neighborhood with cool shops, bars and restaurants. This area was pretty run down until 1989 when the earthquake destroyed the freeway over Hayes street. The state decided not to rebuild the freeway, and the neighborhood flourished.
At lunch we met this nice couple who asked us "are you going to the jazz concert?" We didn't know about the jazz concert, and it was right next door! We snagged a couple of tickets to Dorado Schmitt and the Django all stars (a gypsy jazz group). It was a fantastic concert that we just happened into at a new jazz venue in San Francisco.

|A clever idea - wish I'd thought of it!|
|Chocolate with spicy caramel - very smooth consistency.|
Later we had a great dinner at Park Tavern. All in all a fun day in the great city of San Francisco!
