My companion and I will arrive at the airport from Waahington D.C. about 5:00 June 1, renting a car and staying at the Hilton Bayfront. We planned to leave the car at the hotel and simply walk over to the Gaslamp Quarter to find a casual place for dinner without a reservation since we won't know exactly what time we'll be ready to eat.
But I see there's a game that night -- what will that make the area like? Would we be better off taking the car and getting away from the immediate area -- any suggestions? Or what about the restaurants in the hotel?
