About this Site
San Francisco Offbeat is a personal, idiosyncratic compendium of places that I believe give the city its unique flavor. Rather than overwhelm you with too many choices, I've been highly selective in the listings, focusing on a few neighborhoods that reflect urban diversity and interest for tourist and local alike. Please feel free to submit a listing for consideration.
