I am headed to San Francisco in a few weeks for vacation and I would love to include some magic on the trip, whether that be street performers or more formal. What would you all recommend I see in the area?

Visit Misdirections Magic shop near Golden Gate Park. Contact joe@misdirections.com, he should know what is happening while you are there. If you will be there over a weekend and have transportation, check out California Magic Dinner Theatre in Martinez (about 30 miles north on the east side of the bay) www.calmagic.com . I believe there are still at least two other magic shows playing on a weekly basis, but I have net seen them. Also check out around Pier 39 & Fisherman's Warf for street performers. Finally, there is a Houdini's Magic shop on Pier 39. It may be worth a look if you are at the pier already.

Don't forget to visit Height Ashbury and the Mission District.

Get a croissant at tartines (or anything they have). Literally the best croissants in SF. As far as magic, I dunno. =P its 600 Guerrero street, and expect a few minutes waiting in line in the morning. It's magic for your taste buds.
