We bought this based upon our highly favorable experience with Time Out Shortlist Florence. Unfortunately, it appears that the Time Out editors hire a new set of local writers for each book. That worked beautifully for Florence but bombed miserably for San Francisco.
As is my standard practice with San Francisco guidebooks, I looked for the entry for Tadich Grill, the oldest restaurant in California and one of the long-time classic San Francisco restaurants that get good marks from virtually all travel and restaurant guides (Mimi Sheridan, the New York Times restaurant critic, ranked it the top San Francisco restaurant about 15 years ago). Much to my surprise, there was none --- Nada, Zilch. This is as serious a gaffe as not mentioning the Empire State Building in a New York guide book.
What is covered is a long list of trendy, gay, overpriced dumps that the authors "discovered" during what must have been a very short visit to San Francisco. But they do include quite a bit about the Haight during the "Summer of Love." Urrrppp.
Fellows, the Summer of Love took place in 1968, 42 years ago. It's over. Take my word for it.
There's also a lot about the gay community, but it appears to have been written to impress, not inform.
All in all, an abomination.
