We left Austin in the very early morning hours and headed to the Bay area. We were greeted by KPIX – CBS Channel 5 and a limo from Bauer’s Limo.

We headed downtown to film our segment for the news. We were “surprised” with a “special” guest, Dave from CBS 5’s travel show. The whole crew was very excited to meet Dave. You can see our antics on KPIX here: Video

Dave walked us down to Fisherman’s Wharf and treated us to some delicious crab. Fresh seafood is always so much better than the stuff we get in Buffalo.

Crabs!

After this it was time for the real fun to start. GO CARS! These things are absolutely wild, albeit a little lacking on the torque side (Read: We had to push them up some hills). They also contained a GPS “tour guide” that told us interesting facts about the things we were seeing and constantly reminded us that we weren’t on an officially sanctioned tour and that we should immediately make a U-Turn.

We spent the afternoon dashing around the city, seeing the sights, hearing the sounds, chatting up strippers on the corners, and repeatedly disobeying traffic laws. However, the afternoon soon waned and as with most of our tour stops, it all came to an end just a bit too soon. We had to catch our flight to NOLA and so we dropped off our straight-pimpin-whips to the fine people at Go Car Tours and started to beat feet towards the BART.

On our way, we stumbled into a very happening district of the city and grabbed some excellent food at Giordano Bros and Taqueria Zorro. After our meal, we caught the BART to SFO and we were soon on our way to New Orleans!
