Free Fancy Xmas Experience!
Got a MUNI pass and an hour or two to kill? Hop on the cable car at California and Drumm, (you know, the stop where there's never a line). Ride up California to one stop beyond Powell, hop off, head to the northeast corner of the intersection, and head into the Fairmont! There's a gingerbread house in the lobby that kids can walk through! There's also a huge Xmas tree! There's also decorations of every sort including champagne bottle Xmas trees and a snazzy sports car! It was all rather overwhelming for me, but so cool!
