Many of us wish we could be Carrie Bradshaw dashing around the city from one glamourous event to the next in her Christian Louboutin heels. However, we are not all Carrie Bradshaws, at least I know I don’t have $700 to spend on a pair of heels! But good news ladies, there is hope for us single gals. There are numerous (non e-dating) ways to meet your Mr. Big. And on this fine Tuesday I’m going to give you the scoop on some hot events going on in SF! As the song goes, I left my heart in San Francisco.
1. Attend a wine tasting
We all know wine is one of my life essentials, so I HAD to make this one my number one. You get to learn a little bit about wine and taste its deliciousness. (Plus I love toting out my “wine expertise” and big wino words!) UncorkedEvents.com has a great listing of classes going on in SF.
2. Signup for a cooking class
Would you rather have a stuffy, awkward first date dinner OR have a blast cooking up a storm and getting to know each other? I know I would choose the latter! I can just see it now… feeding each other finger food, a mini food fight maybe, maybe we’d cook an aphrodisiac food! You can find out more info and signup for classes at www.partiesthatcook.com.
3. Head to the Fort Mason Event Center
Fort Mason Center, an historic Port of Embarkation, is now a waterfront destination for thought provoking programs, events and organizations which support and reflect the evolving cultural fabric of the Bay Area. The 13 acre campus is a partner of the Golden Gate National Parks. For more info visit: http://www.fortmason.org/
4. Grab a pooch and go to a dog park
We all know that a dog is a man’s best friend, so why not head to where a man and his best friend will be?? Described as the mecca of dog parks and doggie heaven Fort Funston combines the best of grass, sand, dogs, beach, trees, sewer tubes (dry, of course), and trails!

5. Chow down at a sports bar
Guys love nothing more than a girl grubbin’ down a burger and a beer while cursing at the TV (well I might be able to think of one other thing but for now we’ll stick to this scenario). So throw on a jersey, make sure it’s for the right team/sport, and head to the nearest sports bar! Visit www.yelp.com for locations and reviews of sports bars near you.
