Holy Sh!t

If Chile can be rocked by an 8.8 magnitude earthquake, I see California being hit with something equally as big.  

And can you imagine a wave towering at 131-feet???  

 

Re: Holy Sh!t

  • So... what you're saying is that I should figure out a way to get out of my two trips to California in March and April?

    I'm joking...

    I cannot imagine witnessing a natural disaster of that magnitude, or of any magnitude really. I live in western PA  and not a lot happens here aside from the occasional tornado and the daily rainfall and cloudy skies. Seriously, a 131 foot wave? Holy sh*it!

  • Gone-what part of Cali are you coming to?
  • That's horrible.  Hopefully the tsunami warnings get people prepared for what might happen later today.  A 131 foot wave is terrifying though

    San Francisco in March and LA in April.

  • My director's family is there.  I hope they're okay.
  • They have sounded the tsunami warnings in Hawaii and are evacuating people in the lower coastline. I have family in Hilo that like 1 mile from the coast and the lines are busy.

  • Let me know if you need any fun-time advice for San Francisco!

    Thank you for the offer! I will be staying downtown at the Marriott Marquis (4th street).

    I'm not sure yet if I will have any down time at all because I'm going for a gyn/onc conference and those things are packed with crap I have to do - but if you know of any good restaurants or cool stuff to do within walking distance I'd love to know "just in case."

    Thanks again Smile

  • You got it! I used to work near there for many years so I'm very familiar with the neighborhood. Here are some of my faves around there:

    Fun: Bowling at Yerba Buena Center

    Snazzy drinks & appetizers: XYZ at the W hotel

    Relaxing pub: The Chieftain

    Old school: Hotel Utah  (good for a group, would be a long walk by yourself)

    Cheap Vietnamese: Tu Lan -- don't freak, the neighborhood looks a lot shadier than it actually is

    Classic SF burrito: Cancun -- ditto neighborhood advice above

    Chinatown adventure: Sam Wo -- great walk there will take you through Union Square and Chinatown -- my mom used to eat here in college!

    Only-in-SF Night Out: The Mint -- quick streeetcar ride to the Castro

    As an alternative to the Metreon (don't waste your time in there if you can help it), head to the Ferry Building -- it's a quick streetcar ride from Powell to Embarcadero. Try Taylor's Refresher or takeout from the Slanted Door.

  • Wow, thanks, Fuss! I just copied your post and emailed it to myself. I hope I get the chance to check some of those places out. Especially the Vietnamese food. Yum!

    And, I must admit I'm quite curious about a classic SF burrito...
