DBD 4.23.2012 Introduce the Bay Area!



So, using the DBD for selfish purposes, a friend of mine (who is from Tennessee) and his girlfriend (London) are moving from Shanghai to the US at the end of the year. He works for one of the really large global real estate companies (JLL) and does sustainable programs.

He has two choices in his next stop - New York (BOOOO!) and San Francisco (Yay!)

He asked me "What do I recommend about the Bay Area?" - he's from the South, has never lived anywhere except Tenneessee and Shanghai - so only has the stereotypical idea about California in general and the Bay Area specifically.

So - help me put together an email for him and his girlfriend. They're youngish (late and mid 20s) - competative, somewhat outdoorsy, eat, go to brunches, volunteer.

Since I haven't lived in the Bay Area since 1996 and haven't even been in the Bay Area since 2010, I thought I'd ask for y'alls help. Because as much as I like them, I don't think Top Dog and Cal football would convince them over New York.

So why would the Bay Area be the right choice? (JLL's offices are both in the City and on the Peninsula - so I didn't recommend them living in the East Bay. He mentioned that they might not buy a car for a year as well)
