Plan on parking blocks away from event. Bring sweater or jacket as the weather changes from one moment to the next.

Took BART. Davies Hall not far. Although it was a cool evening, it seemed a little toasty in the concert hall. Plush velvet seats hold heat. Dress in layers.

Burgers are excellent at Double Decker, 465 Grove St, only 2 blocks away. Classic small burger joint. Excellent ingredients and preparation.

The best and most convenient place to eat before the concert is at Jardiniere. Also, you can stop for a drink afterwards.

Found parking in a garage a few blocks away for $8 all day Sunday rate. Arrive in the city 45 minutes early so as not to have to stress over finding parking. Limited on street parking. Spring for a parking lot.

Don't drive if possible. The trick is leaving early enough. We parked at an East Bay BART station, got off at Embarcadero and had a light dinner, took a bus up Market to Van Ness: Symphony Hall right there. Afterwards, BART all the way. Clipper cards! Wonderful.

The weather was a dark and cool winter night. I wore nice dress, husband in slacks and jacket with cravat, both in good overcoats. But it's the Bay Area! Everything goes, really..
