Item description for The Underground Guide to San Francisco, 3rd Edition (Underground Guide to San Francisco) by Jennifer Joseph...
"A way cool guide that manages to raise the art of irreverence to a new level."-Chicago Tribune
The Underground Guide to San Francisco is the original alternative guidebook. Not for the average tourist looking for cable cars and Fisherman's Wharf, The Underground Guide gives the lowdown on the weirdest, coolest stuff to do, see, and buy, and where to hang out in the Bay Area. Includes everything from where to find the Jonestown Massacre mass grave in Oakland, where to get the finest tattoo, where to find gourmet meals for under $10, couch-surfing alternatives, how to find help if you're in trouble, free and cheap entertainment, where to rent a dungeon by the hour, and a zillion other obscure, fascinating details necessary for life among the young, restless, and notorious. Includes the queer scene, East Bay explorations, "Weird Museums and Unusual Libraries," and "Mini-Cinies and Micro-Theaters." New chapters include "For the Dogs" and "The Final Frontier: The Excelsior and Beyond." Contributors include Beth Lisick, Bucky Sinister, Jon Longhi, Miles Long, and many others.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Underground Guide to San Francisco, 3rd Edition (Underground Guide to San Francisco)?
Find What You Want in San Francisco with This Guide! Feb 9, 2003
This guide is packed with great information to get whatever it is you're looking for in San Francisco. I found the book to be user friendly, down to earth, and honest. Since I am a vinyl junkie, I was thrilled to look in the index and find the heading for "Record Stores". This guide was extremely useful when exploring "The Haight", my favorite area of The City. Bravo to the contributors, and to the Manic D production team, for this great Second Edition!
Pocket-sized, fun! Apr 16, 2000
This guidebook is a wonderfull resource if you're just visiting or planing to stay awhile. Each section is written by a different person, with different interests and perspectives (bars, thrift stores, piercing, poetry readings, bookstores, etc.) It also has useful sections on Oakland and Berkeley. If you're thinking of moving to the "Bay Area", there are handy guides to housing and employment. It's a great book, and worth every penny!
