hey all. i'm going to be in town for a week in early november for business. will be staying near union square and happy to make my way to berkeley and oakland as long as i don't have to drive (a dangerous proposition for me). i'm looking for any interesting, chic places for business dinners during the week plus any inexpensive restaurants/holes in the wall for great pho and mexican, plus good farmers markets and casual places serving local, seasonal foods for the weekend. once i'm off the company dime my expense threshold drops dramatically -- cheaper is better! thanks.
