We don't get to escape the city too often, and we're starting to feel slightly worse the wear for it. So when Escapes Month started here at AT:SF, we felt hard pressed to come up with much. Then we began thinking of those hidden gems around here that are mini-escapes all on there own...Of course we can name the standard weekend destinations in the area (Napa! Monterey! Yosemite!), but we'd love you to tell us about the hidden gems you love... you know, the places you daydream of during the work week. Ours? We were probably only 17 at the time and highly trepidatious on walking up to the place, but the barbecued oysters we had at this little shack along Tomales Bay were on another level - absolutely delicious.
