Soma, San Francisco, San Francisco, California (B)

In all of San Francisco, SOMA is definitely where I've spent most of my time, considering I'm there 40+ hours a week for work. SOMA is the hub of all the tech companies in San Francisco, so there's a lot of spots that have popped up in the last 5-10 years to make it a happening place, mostly during the weekdays (it's a bit more quiet on the weekends!) Below is my list of the top 10 things to do in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood - hope you enjoy!

A ping pong bar filled with hipsters and developers that has a DJ most nights -- the perfect spot to grab a drink after work or go for your next team outing! It's worthwhile to note that you get buckets of ping pong balls refilled and they use these mop-like gadgets to sweep everything up and refill your bucket, meaning you don't have to shag your own balls!!! The tables aren't cheap and you should reserve them in advance, but it's well worth the experience. Nothing else says Silicon Valley quite like this bar.

Home of the 8 time world series champs, AT and T park is not only fun because of the baseball, but it also has some of the best food in the city (my favorites include a slice of Tony's pizza, the crab sando & Gilroy garlic fries!) and a pretty awesome view of the bay! Just make sure to watch out for the AT and T Park seagulls around the 8th inning. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
