Have Fun: Dance it up if the music is rocking, eat, drink & relax with good people!
Be Nice, Be Respectful, Clean Up & Be Safe!
Parking: Street parking is a bit tough (& shady) in Civic Center / Tenderloin Area. You can try to park up closer to Polk Gulch / Russian Hill area and then walk down to Civic Center / City Hall.
MUNI/BART: Civic Center MUNI/BART Station!
