Nickname for San Francisco. Sometimes also called "San Fran", but the local residents hate it when someone refers to it as "'Frisco". A wonderful city for all, with steep hilly streets, among other things.
Jeremy: Let's check out The City and see Lombard Street. It's the Crookedest Street in the World. After that we can get on a ferry and visit Alcatraz. Then we can have a pizza.

Sam: Alright! Let's go!
