Swim With Fishes
In my ongoing occasional quest to (eventually) enjoy all things touristy in San Francisco, I went with a pal to the Aquarium of the Bay.
But it was with a bunch of adults, drinks and nibbly things, and a live band, The Mermen.
This was the opening night party of the Ocean Film Festival, which I mentioned in the picks of the week in the BAR.
It's really quite fascinating, touching a shark, gazing at the fish, anenomes, and starfish.
It's particularly fascinating to see a swirl of sardines hovering above you in the tunnel walk-through.
Although it was a tad duplicitous to be also eating sardines on toast at the same time.
The Ocean Film Festival runs through Feb. 3 at the Cowell Theatre.
If you happen to be at the Embarcadero with tourist friends to entertain, this is one of the best bets.
