Weekend escape in August - Need some guidance

TxgalinVA | Jul 30, 201302:22 PM

My husband and I just planned a semi-last minute get away for Aug 9-11. I'm out there for work that week so we're pawning the kids off to the grandparents :). We got so much great advice from this board for our Napa trip a few years ago so I thought I'd ask for your expertise once again.

1) Looking for a place for an earlier dinner and later drinks on Friday night. Maybe tapas or small plates? We're doing the Beach Blanket Babylon show so was thinking eating before and then drinks / late night nibbles afterwards. We're staying at the Hilton in Union Square so close to here or the theater would be great but not required. We love farm-to-table spots and craft cocktails also Italian and Spanish cuisine. Price isn't a concern.

2) Saturday morning we're going to get up and hit the Ferry market then drive out to Napa (I know it's a long drive for just one night but we have such great memories of our trip there we want to get another small sample of the region). Our Saturday late afternoon plans and dinner are taken care of. On Sunday, I was thinking about driving back into the city for brunch somewhere in the Mission area before catching our 4pm flight out of SFO. I have a reservation at Foreign Cinema for 12:45 (earliest they had). Seems doable to me with needing to be back at SFO around 2:30, but do you think this will be too rushed? Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions! We'll be sure to report back on our experiences.
