NFT San Francisco Visitacion Valley

Visitacion Valley

Respite from fog makes this hilly area appealing, and modest, somewhat affordable homes have attracted the most diverse population in the city, from new immigrants to young families looking for starter homes.

You can see McLaren Park from the freeway -- it's a big, 317-acre, tree-covered hilltop -- the ideal place for a car chase. But if you don't own your own car, check out the movie Bullit and you can catch a glimpse of the park during the famous car chase scene.

No one puts Dan Bollwinkel's golf game in a corner. A self-described anti-golfer, Dan has come to show you that golfing doesn't have to be high-class, tidy or bereft of beer swilling. So, come! Golf with the workingmen, swing with the athletically eccentric. Golf by the projects, downhill, with festive company and a liquor license. Here, you ain't nobody's caddy.

It was Sunday night, and my dementia-stricken grandmother had just unleashed her latest verbal thrashing on my absent sister. My mother feared for Vanessa’s safety. But as usual, a dinner out would eliminate all (unjustified) ill feelings. The food and ambience at Silver Garden Restaurant on San Bruno Avenue was just the kind of homey Chinese cuisine and experience I’m usually deprived of in the East Bay, right down to the waitress’ lightning-fast words and distinct accent that I had trouble keeping up with. Our party of seven was one of the first to arrive that evening, but before long, the place was packed. Despite the small size of the establishment, the menu had an extensive selection that was screaming for me to come back again. The food was decent enough to satisfy me. Best of all, grandma barely said a word throughout the entire meal, choosing instead to devour her food. A true miracle worker.
