Who: VegNews Managing Editor Elizabeth Castoria
What: An evening's vacation in my hometown
Where: San Francisco, Calif.
When: Thursday, May 5, 2011
Why: Why not take an hours-long vacation at home?
The Scoop: So, some people would call going out for the evening just a regular old outing, not so much a "vacation." Well, I say vacay is all in how you think about it. On a recent Thursday night, I took a little time off (that just happened to fall between the close of business and bedtime), and toured San Francsico. Along with my adventuresome roommates, I headed for the Sutro Baths, which, insanely, I'd never really visited despite having lived in the Bay Area nearly my entire life. Really, you might as well play tourist when your city happens to house a number of places that are frequented by actual tourists.

With full bellies and a new collection of travel photos, we went home, just in time to go to sleep and be ready for work the next day.
