I just moved to the San Francisco area about two months ago and I'm still trying to find the cool, local places to hang out and meet new friends. It's weird being in a city by yourself. Do you know of any good places, gay or straight, where you can go to meet a young crowd and just hang out? I've been to a few places in teh Castro, like Badlands, which is a bit too intense for me at times. I'm looking to meet friends right now, not the occasional hook up just yet Anyway, if you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
