#feature TRAVELING FOR WEC: WHAT WILL YOU DO FIRST IN SAN FRANCISCO? BY SUSANNA FLORES SAN FRANCISCO TRAVEL S an Francisco is constantly reinventing itself, making it hard to answer the question: "What's new?" If I have to narrow down my long list, however, I am looking forward to eating contemporary Mexican cuisine at Arguello Restaurant in the Presidio Officer's Club. Then I hope to get a drink at the Hotel Zephyr in Fisherman's Wharf. Finally, I will try my best to swing a site visit at The Gotham Club, a speakeasy-style private venue behind the scoreboard at AT&T Park. I asked the same question of some of the members of our meeting and events community headed to San Francisco for MPI WEC in August, and this is what they shared: sarah Bondar, senior account executive, the charles group always wanted to experience firsthand. There's no better way to take in the city than on something they are known for!" don't miss MPI WEC August 1-4 in San Francisco. Learn more at www.mpiweb.org/wec15! pam wynne, global program director, carlson wagonlit (and Mpi nJ chapter president) "I proudly state I am heading to In-N-Out Burger!" diane anderson, Regional director, northeast nYc&company "I look forward to eating the shaking beef at the Slanted Door and taking a cable car ride." "The thing I am looking forward to doing first when I get to SF for MPI WEC is taking a walk around the city and venturing down to the Fisherman's Wharf to take a look around and eat some amazing seafood! I also hope one day to have time to fit in a quick sightseeing tour - in and around WEC appointments." suzanne Medcalf, Regional Manager - hosted Buyer program, iMeX america elizabeth george, Membership director, ustoa Joshua novick, Business development Manager - north america, London & partners "I guess what I most look forward to as a "foodie" is the opportunity to try so many new restaurants but to also make the pilgrimage to Alice Waters' Chez Panisse, where I know that I will experience something that speaks about the locale, slow food and celebrating nature's local bounties." pamela kenworthy, associate Manager - Legal & corporate governance, national exchange carrier association "I am most looking forward to starting some Christmas shopping in San Francisco; I have the first flight out of Newark and will arrive well before the start of the conference at 9 a.m. Pacific." amanda cristina, cMp, Meeting planner, LiMRa "The FIRST thing I am going to do when I get to San Fran is hop on a cable car! I've seen them in so many movies, and I have 16 @MPIGNY suMMeR 2015 "I am really looking forward to connecting with my MPI friends from around the world in one of my favorite cities in the world! It will be wonderful to explore and connect with people in a city that is so vibrant and fun!" "I'm excited to sneak away for some sinful breads and pastries from Tartine. Then I'll have to walk it all off before heading to Boulettes Larder at the Embarcadero to peruse their locally sourced food stuffs and have a snack ... and maybe a cocktail." tracy Feinsilver, director of operations, Mining indaba I plan to take a walk over to my favorite little bakery in Chinatown or do a jog through the city to take in the sights, sounds, energy of the people and beauty of the skyline. And the results are unanimous! Everyone really wants to eat when they get to SF. I am not surprised! Keep up to date on all things WEC and SF by following WEC on Twitter at @WEC15 and @sfmeetings.
