We attended a matinee and went down to Nordstroms after the show to eat.

The weather was windy and cold.. I wore slacks, a sweater and jacket. Dress nicely, it is, after all, theater!.

.YBCA is easily accessible by public transit, 2-3 blocks from Muni and BART. Also, MIssion-Fifth Garage has reasonable rates, but a bit longer walk...

The Yerba Buena area is surrounded by some of the best hotels and restaurants - we followed up by going to The View for drinks before dinner at Amber, both of which were lovely.

Stopping by The Flying Falafel before and eating in the plaza at The Jewish Contemporary Museum across from the theater makes a nice evening. The falafel and guys there are an event in themselves.

Take BART to either Powell or Montgomery and walk a block and a half, through Yerba Buena Gardens, to the performing arts center

Thirsty Bear is one block from the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts & worked well for a pre-show dinner.

The weather was casual. I wore dress pants and top--leather shoes, jewelry and a cute little purse.

Montgomery bart is very close. Arrive a little early as late seating is not allowed and there was still a long will call line at 3 minutes before the show started.

If you like to actually watch the ballet, do not buy tickets through Goldstar because you will be seated in the nosebleed seats in the terrace section and won't be able to see much.

This time I took bus #70 from Marin. I suggest you check the return schedule and not rely on the bus driver going to SF. My friend wanted to take the bus instead of the ferry so we did. I'd suggest using the public parking garage at 4-5th Mission instead or taking the ferry from Marin and either walking up Mission to Yerba Buena or a taxi. The bus back to Marin, which we were told was every 30 minutes, was once an hour. My friend did not find out the whole story and I should have not relied on her. .
