Secret San Francisco is a guidebook for people who hate guidebooks. For both visitors and San Fran natives, it takes you off the tired path of mainstream tourism and explores the unfamiliar treasures of the city's dynamic neighborhoods. Written by a well-known San Francisco writer, David Armstrong, and organized by subject into 105 "Secret" sections, Secret San Francisco speaks to adventurous travelers, encouraging them to check out the city behind the city. This distinctive book will tell you where to buy clothing by the pound or get your hair and nails done while sipping cocktails. It will lead you to a restaurant/bar with an East German theme (metal/industrial furnishings and pictures of Marx), all-night danceterias, and places to hang out at the San Fran airport.
