- Doing Dry January or just don't drink alcohol in general? Enjoy a non-alcoholic craft cocktail, book a "temperance tasting", or sign up for a mixology class at Ocean Beach Cafe in the Outer Richmond. Or check out Boisson in Hayes Valley, a sleek non-alcoholic bottle shop, with a selection of over 300 drinks.
- Try a yoga class in a special location. Practice Yoga on the Labyrinth surrounded by the awe-inspiring architecture of Grace Cathedral and accompanied by live music from world-renowned musicians. Classes held weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Or reserve an upcoming date now for Yoga in the Garden outside in the Botanical Garden or After-Hours Yoga in the Conservatory in a lush tropical setting.
- Want to do a short day trip outside of the city? Take a guided elephant seal walk at Año Nuevo State Park. During breeding season from now through March 31st, visitors must be accompanied on a docent-led tour, offered multiple times daily. Click here for more info and to reserve tickets.
- While SF does usually enjoy some warm days in January, we also get our share of cold, wet, and dreary days. On those days, there's nothing better than a hot bowl of noodle soup. Find some of the best ramen in San Francisco, according to this list in The Infatuation. What's your favorite noodle spot in SF?
- Have a laugh at SF Sketchfest. This annual comedy festival runs from January 18 to February 4 at venues across San Francisco and includes improv, stand-up, film, podcasts, storytelling, variety and game shows, and more. Check out the lineup and get tickets here.
