Holiday Activities in the City
There are several ways to celebrate the holiday season in this fair city of ours - have you made any plans yet? If you’re looking for inspiration, we pulled together some of our favorite options and events the City has to offer to enjoy the season.

One of the greatest parts about the Bay Area is enjoying friendly weather all year long (with a few exceptions, like last week’s Pineapple Express!). Still, if you’re looking to get into a wintry mood, the city does not disappoint. Say, with a spin around an ice skating rink! Union Square’s ice rink is a great option for wintry fun in the heart of downtown - and a welcome way to break up your holiday shopping.

It's also a great time of year to catch up with friends both new and old. And what better excuse than a seasonally flavored beverage? 7x7 has a list of the top holiday cocktails to enjoy in San Francisco this year. Included along with the location of where to find these gems is a list of accompanying recipes for said drinks. So if you're more the "host at home" type, you can easily mix your own.

Perhaps the most traditional way to soak in neighborhood cheer is to admire the holiday spirit as shared by your fellow city dwellers. I'm referring to light displays and other holiday decor, of course! SF Curbed has got a link to a holiday cheer map for all your light sighting needs. But if you prefer to observe from the comfort of your desk (or couch) - check out this drone video (shot from Santa’s-eye view!) of lights around the city.

Potential Subway Extension to Fisherman’s Wharf
Newest of the New: Condo Edition
Potential Subway Extension to Fisherman’s Wharf
The Winter Walk in Union Square is yet another bit of seasonal cheer to enjoy, but it also serves a practical purpose - covering the underground subway construction that has dominated the block all year. Now there is talk about extending the subway past Chinatown, through North Beach and all the way to Fisherman’s Wharf.

The original construction plan for the tunnel takes the subway from the Caltrain station in SOMA to Chinatown. But since construction began there has been talk of continuing the tunnel further north. And last week a city-commissioned study was released on just that topic. It’s not cheap, of course. The project could take decades and cost between $367 million and $1.4 billion. Still, the idea is popular with potential riders - and with the possible bid for the 2024 Olympics coming to the City, the timeline on such a project could get moved up significantly.

John King speaks eloquently on the subject in a piece for the Chronicle when he says "In a city where the cultural center of gravity has been shifting southward for the past generation, the dense and historically dynamic neighborhoods that drape Telegraph Hill shouldn’t be left to tourists." (Maybe it’s clear he’s in favor of the development).

The city-commissioned study is just the first step. And yes, the Olympic bid might bear some weight on the movement of such a project, but that won’t be determined until 2017.
