I'm from the north bay: Vallejo/Fairfield area.
I'm very recreational-oriented: cycling, paddling, surfing, hiking, sight seeing. My girlfriend and I are always on the hunt for amazing cafes that serve exceptional beverages and pastries.
We try to avoid the tourist traps, rather, cruise as the locals do and enjoy the smaller/off the beaten path places.
We're the dive-bar lurkers rather than club-hopper types. We'd rather conversation, beer, and pizza over the OOMPH OOMPH OOMPH of fist pumping music. We're always open to suggestion of must-have restaurants, so long as it doesn't break the wallet ;o)
I think that about covers it!
