If you are going to San Francisco ...attend the America's Cup taking place this year

As being a sailor myself I just have to give you a heads up that some of the most spectacular events is coming up shortly in San Francisco: The America's Cup 

The America’s Cup ‘Summer of Racing’ kicks off on July 4th and includes three months of hard-fought competition, culminating with the best two teams in the world dueling for the oldest trophy in international sport. A schedule of all racing events can be found here

To get an idea what to expect during the America's Cup watch this video: 


To get in the mood for America's Cup you can treat yourself as well to some Nautical Eats and 7x7 has the overview:  Starting in July, some nautically-themed treats and cocktails will be anchored onto the menus of Coqueta, Hard Water, La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, and The Plant Café Organic—all a part of the loftily named America’s Cup Culinary Collection, presented by The Piers

My favorite is La Mar on Pier 1.5: 
La Mar Cebicheria Peruana's chef Diego Oka works his seaside magic with traditional ingredients that are familiar to anyone who’s lounged away in Peru. The Regatta ($19.95) includes cebiche mixto (with Mexican yellowtail), calamari and shrimp in an ají amarillo leche de tigre with Peruvian corn and yam. Causa pulpo olivo blends tender octopus tartare with Peruvian black olives, red pepper and onions over yellow potato causa with avocado purée. Or try the Arroz Criollo, a combo of wok sautéed rice with aji panca, choclo, shrimp, calamari and mussels.
