              Review

              I generally don't care for tours as they make me feel like a tourist. But Robin's "Invented in San Francisco" tour steers clear of Fisherman's Wharf—focusing instead on the many culinary and technological innovations that created San Francisco's reputation as a hotbed of creativity.
