Park at Sutter Stockton garage. Nice little bar in the theater lobby if you get there early. (And you can take drinks into the theater.)
Powell Street BART is just a short walk away. Much better than getting into crazy traffic.
Park at Sutter parking lot (@ Stockton) $2/hr. In evenings. My wife and I enjoy dressing nicely when we go out but are shocked at how “casual “ San Francisco has become. In other words, anything goes.
the farallon restaurant next door has a really good happy hour til 6pm
I was over at Yerba Buena Gardens and ate at Lemons. It was really good and fast. You order from the counter and sit down to eat. I had a sushi dish and stir-fried Brussels sprouts. Both were yummy. I had some lemon-aid also it was really good.
This theater is only a few blocks from BART. Park at your local BART station, go to Powell St. Station, and avoid the hassles of traffic and parking.
Parking at Sutter-Stockton garage ~ $15 for afternoon performance. Spirits and snacks reasonably priced during their "happy hour"
great dining at farmerbrown's within walking distance. happy hour menu($5.) no early crowds(can always eat at bar, if need be)
City of Angels
One of my favorite restaurants is Sanraku, not far away at Sutter and Taylor. It appeared to still be open after the Wed. show!
I drove from Oakland, in order to give my friend a ride home. I'm glad I left an hour and a quarter early. Traffic piled up at every point in the journey. Avoid it all, and take BART! However, a miraculous parking place opened up in a yellow space, just after I arrived (it was after 6).
Show up on time! It's a short enough show that late comers (and there were many) are distracting!
Lots of choices from Jack in the Box to Westfield mall from the Powell Street station.
