Burn Notice

What to do when the burners are away

The burners, talented flock of Bartertowners that they are, have decamped for Black Rock City. And the bridge, it is closed.

It’s just you, the city, and your lady.

Here’s how to make the most of it.


4001 Judah Street
at 45th
Parking on street.
(415) 661-6140

Fuel Up

Brunch and coffee at Outerlands. It’s way out in the Sunset, but traffic will be light. The bread is a mansion of doughy bliss, and the coffee is tasty. Plus the curvilinear driftwood decor makes it feel like you’re in a hollow redwood carved by Eames. We recommend Eggs in Jail and the Dutch Pancake with fresh ricotta.

Land's End Trail

Park at the main Land's End parking on Merrie Way off Point Lobos. 

Venture Out

Full-bellied, truck a mile up the Great Highway to stretch legs and strut your knowledge of the Sutro Baths.  Hike up the Land’s End Trail from the ruins to the labyrinth at Eagle’s Point. It’s only a couple miles round trip, and for all the Bowie in Lycra you won’t spy, damn fine panoramic views’ll be in serious supply.

Presidio Social Club

563 Ruger St
off Lombard
Parking on site.
(415) 885-1888

Wind Down

Now cruise out past Baker Beach down Lincoln Blvd for an adult beverage at the Presidio Social Club. The back patio’s just the place to end a day like this, and the house Grog (rum, lime, bitters and beer) goes well with the Bay breeze. If the subject of dessert arises, we suggest the Rhubarb Cake.
