AskMen.com, that advertising-choked, Internet laddie magazine home of Jessica Alba, Beyonce, Megan Fox, and Scarlett Johansson, today announced the results of its “Top 29 Cities for Men to Live In“, ranking San Francisco third-best.
Well that’s par for the course for SF, CA, but what about their advice concerning where to go and what to do? It seems more appropriate for my grandmotherthan a swinging young AskMen man. But you judge for yourself, below.
A couple of drinks for thirty-something dollars at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel atop geriatric Nob Hill – is that any kind of date for a laddie?

Anyway, here’s their advice:
Can’t Miss: Taking a date for martinis at Top of the Mark
To Avoid: Avoid the Tenderloin district like the plague, lest you actually catch some
Tipping: Gratuity is going to cost you; 20% is considered the bare minimum
San Francisco Bay also features Alcatraz prison, known as the inescapable “rock.” Take the ferry out to what is now a museum, which gives riders a picturesque view of San Francisco’s legendary Golden Gate Bridge.
For the record, the crowd at the Top of the Mark skews older [UNDERSTATEMENT MODE= OFF] to put it mildly, plague is associated with neighboring San Mateo County (not San Francisco’s Tenderloin, which youths would find much more entertaining than Snob Hill), and 20% is considered an average tip around town.
All right, maybe Askmen’s advice would be good for your skinflint grandpa, the one who has never heard about Alcatraz. You know, the one who never tips more than 10% (of the pre-tax total, of course - he never would base his tax on the total bill, oh no).
Fine. But youthful laddie mag readers might not want to rely on Askmen.com.
Read all the gritty nitty and see which burg topped the list, after the jump.
