Get in shape by literally turning your workout routine up-side down. Raven Fitness combines aerial/silks work with yoga to strengthen your body in ways you never thought possible. These low-impact classes will give you a core of steel and increase your flexibility and balance. The "anti-gravity" classes come in different forms, from yoga to suspension (think TRX) to cocooning, which is basically 20 minutes of relaxation like you’ve never quite experienced.

Few places exude the class and elegance you'll find at Gary Danko. This is a “we have something big to celebrate” kind of place. It would probably be easier to talk through the number of awards the restaurant hasn’t won, because it has 12 Five Diamond ratings from AAA, multiple Michelin stars, James Beard Awards and so much more. The meals are an indulgence for your stomach and your pocketbook, but the experience is priceless.
Where: 800 North Point St., North Beach
When: Reservations accepted Mon.-Fri., 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sat. & Sun., 2-10 p.m.
