Summer in April for delighted fools

On this April Fool’s Day, many people throughout the Financial District were fooled into thinking this was summer instead of the early days of Spring.

For the past two days, San Franciscans woke up to a sunny day with mild temperatures turning into an afternoon in the high 70s.

Today, the FiDi lunch crowd was out in mass through the neighborhood streets the tenacious ones in search of sunshine, the cautious ones going for some shade.

Big lines formed in the neighborhood hot spots, the outdoor lunch spots filled in no time…

My friend Pam and I took a stroll on our lunch break that led us to LaMar, a Peruvian Ceviche restaurant alongside the Embarcadero few steps away from FiDi, where we enjoyed some delicious foods and drinks to quench our thirst while soaking the sun.

Both proudly adorned our first sunburn of 2011.

Here are a couple of photos of the neighborhood transformed for a few hours into a waterside vacation town for the delight of FiDi workers.

Where Am I?
