    Head to Dolores Park and track down the guy swinging bronze kettles, which are full of homemade, uh, herb-infused chocolates. The truffle man offers you three for $10. Read more

    Perch yourself at the southwest corner of everybody’s favorite park for an incomparable view of palm trees set against the city skyline. It’s especially stunning on the occasional clear, balmy night. Read more
