Are you visiting California? This section's for you!
HOTELS are kinda sucky in San Francisco EXCEPT Beck's Motor Lodge which is not far from the venue, and our friend Brittney owns it! You can email them and ask for the 'Hoyllara Wedding Swarm' discount. Otherwise, if you want something decent in a cool, central neighborhood to the action of the weekend, Stanyan Park Hotel is right next to Golden Gate Park and it's only a $10 Lyft ride to Forest Hill Club. It's also next door to Kezar Pub which has the best chicken wings in SF, as well as Free Gold Watch, Greg's favorite pinball joint. AirBnB is maybe a good bet: check Inner Sunset or Upper Haight areas for easy access to Forest Hill with extra culture and walkable fun.
TRANSPORTATION is best handled via Lyft or Flywheel (on-demand taxi services). Bike shares are also fairly popular here.
Speaking of GOLDEN GATE PARK... Kristen and Greg (actually Greg is typing this, and it's weird to talk about myself in the third person, but hey, it's a wedding website) live just a block away from it in the Inner Richmond district.
Some of our favorite joints are O'Keeffe's Bar, Sushi Bistro, and Bella. If you want to check out Clement Street, Greg (er, I) suggest 540 Club, High Treason if you want a nice wine bar, and The Bitter End.
The Conservatory of Flowers and The Rose Garden are mainstays when we walk the dogs and run to stay relatively fit.
What are some of your favorite things, Kristen & Greg?
What a great question! There's a lot of natural beauty within the city: Lands End, Ocean Beach, The Presidio, The Embarcadero...
feel free to email your time frame and desires: we'd be happy to suggest some things for you!
