I'm a big fan of Dogpatch. I love the place as it is and am excited about it's future. Hanging out at the at the bars on Terry Francois Dr walking or riding my bike along the Embarcadero. There are some new resturants in and with Esprit Park opening with a new resturant for the owners of A16 and SPQR on site it will definately be equal to the good times at the old 42 degrees resturant.
Oh and easy walking to 18th Street on Potrero to Chez Papa or Barak. Lots to do, access to downtown, new Mission Bay hospital, bio-tech firms the waterfront. If I didn't already have a home that my family is tied to, I'd be there or North Beach.
I hope the dry dock stays, really cool to see the ships jacked up and out of the water.
