Bisou ... french bistro on Market only one block from the Castro Theater is great for before or after dinner ... they open at 5:30 so before is no problem and after you'll see the hip Castro crowd up close and person. Food and service are really excellent !!

We took the trolley up Market St. to the Castro. Which was a nice ride. Great for people watching and the street scene. The only draw back is full trolleys and wait time. If you have time it's a great way to enjoy the city experience.

Description

Cecile Richards, a high-profile defender of women’s rights, will be honored with INFORUM’s 21st Century Visionary Award. She has earned respect for her poised leadership amidst controversy, braving congressional budget debates and forcefully advocating for equal access to health care and women’s reproductive rights. Her initiatives extend far beyond the gender sector, however, and include promoting leadership programs for today’s youth and leading national health-based educational campaigns. Richards has mastered the seeming oxymoron of a gentle revolutionary, which this award recognizes, as she continues her lifelong fight to inspire women and the next generation.
