Hello fellow 'Zoners,
First of all, long time reader of the webzone, first time poster.
This Thursday 12th November, one of my childhood dreams will be fulfilled as my father and I make the trip all the way from Wellington, New Zealand to San Francisco to watch my first ever live 49ers game (Niners/Bears). Have been a 49ers fan ever since we lived for a year and a half in Santa Rosa Ca, way back in 1994..
Keeping up with the team has been pretty hard living down under in NZ, only the Sunday night and Monday night games are broadcast on TV (so I've seen a few Colts/Patriots/Chargers/Cowboys games ha..) although Jerry Rice's retirement did make a small segment in the national news a few years ago...
Dad briefly lived in Chicago so is more a Bears than a Niners fan, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make the trip this year!
I was wondering if any of you locals had any tips on where to go pre-game, any good places to eat, things to do etc.? I remember the last time I was in San Fran it was 2002 with my family and we were in the Hard Rock Cafe the night before the GB vs Niners game and the place was packed with stinking Packers fans, who were making one hell of a racket... Would love to be a part of the home team rally this time!
Thanks in advance...
