I'm up for Yankee or 21st.  Trying to think of others that might be  
good... One place that is kind of fun is the Beach Chalet out on Great  
Highway (  It's an old historic building  
that 75 years ago used to contain a restaurant and changing areas for  
beach-goers.  Now it contains a restaurant and a small museum :-)   
It's right across the street from the Pacific Ocean, so if we pick the  
time right and get a good table, we can watch a spec-@#$@-tacular  
sunset.  They do take reservations, so if we have our ducks in a row,  
we could probably ensure a good view.

The beer there is pretty good, and so is the food (Heather, Lily, [and  
now Gus] and I meet some friends there semi-regularly and eat in the  
outdoor area in the back).

Parking is fairly decent (they have their own lot, and there is  
usually street parking either right inside Golden Gate Park on JFK  
Blvd. or 2 blocks away on Fulton St).

The main disadvantage is that it's somewhat out of the way for people  
not already in the City, and if you're in the City and depending on  
public transit to get there, it's kind of a hike from the N-Judah turn- 
around or the Geary St. and Balboa St. bus lines.  (I'm not sure how  
far out the Fulton St. bus goes, but if it goes all the way to Great  
Highway, that is a fairly short walk.

Are we settled on the date?  Due to my recent family expansion, I'll  
need to make sure I have arranged help for Heather that night  
(although this next week, Heather's mom is staying with us, so it  
happens to work out pretty well).
