The setup looks like a magic trick. Ten tulip-shaped champagne glasses side-by-side on a grated rail behind Buena Vista Cafe’s crowded saloon bar. Two cubes of C&H sugar drop into each glass. The bartender tips a pot of Peerless coffee and partly fills each glass down the line. A spoon follows, briskly pitching steam into the air. The heat is extinguished with a unbroken pour of Tullamore Dew whiskey and a white dollop of whipped cream. From beginning to end, every step is executed with the speed and precise timing of a magician. But the real trick is serving the remaining 1,990 glasses every single day to the throngs of people waiting to taste the 63-year-old recipe that marked Irish coffee’s American debut.

The new E-Embarcadero vintage streetcar line is set to start weekend service on July 25th between Fisherman's Wharf and the Caltrain Station at Fourth and King. 

Five historic streetcars will be put into service from 10am–7pm Saturdays and Sundays, with rollout of seven-day service planned in early 2016. They'll make the same stops as the N-Judah from the Folsom stop to Caltrain, using separate street-level platforms, and will share the same stops as the existing F-line historic streetcar from the Ferry Terminal north to the Wharf. Streetcars will run about every 15 minutes.

With more than 30 locations across the state, Boudin Bakery is a California classic for sandwiches, soup, salad and of course fresh-baked sourdough. Founded in San Francisco in 1849, Burgundian master baker Isidore Boudin sought to combine French breadmaking techniques with the sourdough popular among Californian gold miners. To this day, every single loaf of sourdough produced by Boudin uses the original yeast-bacteria culture, maintained through the centuries for a distinctive, instantly-recognizable taste.

What better way to celebrate more than 165 years of San Francisco sourdough tradition with a meeting at Bistro Boudin, the bakery’s flagship facility? The 26,000-square-foot facility has a café, museum and a fine-dining restaurant with stunning views of Alcatraz, Angel Island and the rest of the scenic San Francisco Bay. The main dining room seats up to 270 for dinner and 400 for cocktail receptions.

A new study commissioned by San Francisco finds that extending the $1.59 billion Central Subway to Fisherman's Wharf would draw thousands of new riders. Construction is underway on the Central Subway's 1.7 mile route, which is now slated to go from the Caltrain station at Fourth and King Streets to Chinatown and open in 2019. The proposed extension project would construct a North Beach station and extend the tracks to one or two stations at Fisherman's Wharf. The study is the first analysis of what it would mean to connect the rail line to those two neighborhoods, which are among San Francisco's most tourist-heavy. Read the full story here: http://www.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/blog/2014/12/sf-central-subway-study-to-fishermans-wharf.html?page=all

When Lacresha Whitfield brought her daughters to Pier 39 last year to write letters to Santa as part of a more-than-century-old U.S. Postal Service holiday campaign, she never expected that their wishes would come true.

Recalling how the San Francisco family received anonymous gifts in the mail that were exactly what the girls had asked for -- a Monster High doll for Mackenzie, now 8, and puzzles and blocks for Madison, now 2 -- Whitfield said they decided they had to come back this year for another dose of Christmas magic.

Fall’s annual crab frenzy is upon us — like the Beaujoulais Nouveau release, only much, much better.

“Fishermen are happy, customers appear to be happy, so we’re just swamped,” says a tired-sounding Angel Cincotta of Alioto-Lazio Fish Co., a seafood supplier on Fisherman’s Wharf.
