    I'll be in SF next month for GDC, staying near Alamo Square. Not sure how much free time I'll have but if there are any vape shops I should check out, would love some recommendations. :)

    The only vape shop in SF proper that I feel is really worth anyone's time is Frisco Vapor over on Lombard:
    Frisco Vapor - Marina/Cow Hollow - San Francisco, CA | Yelp
    It's not exactly convenient if you're in SF for GDC, but it's the best one I've been to.

    I've also heard good and bad things about Vape Supreme, and it's nearer to SOMA, but I've not been there myself:
    Vape Supreme - Japantown - San Francisco, CA | Yelp

    If you're willing to venture outside SF, Vapor Lounge is the best shop in the Bay Area in my opinion:
    Vapor 1 Lounge WC - Walnut Creek, CA | Yelp
    It's an easy BART ride from SF, so don't let it's location outside the city scare you off.

    And all of the Platinum Vape locations are good:

    Hayward is typically friendlier, while Newark is bigger and has more stuff.

    I'll second Frisco Vapor...nice selection of juices and their house brand has a few nice flavors. Quality gear and very nice and knowledgeable staff.

    I found a place called Tower Vapor that is in a little shack in a big gas station around where Mission, 12th and Van Ness meet. The address is 1601 Mission. I was expecting the worst and they had some great mods, 5 Pawns Juices, etc..

    Awesome, thanks guys. :) Any vaping ordinances in SF I should be aware of when up there?

    Not yet...restricting them was discussed at a city council meeting on Thurs. but no ordinances yet.

    Just be respectful and ask the establishment owners/managers first about their policy. You probably will not see many people vaping just out and about but we're here!

    I've been wanting to check out Tower Vapor also...looks nice, clean, premium juice selection (vs. head shop, tobacco/porn store) from the pics and reviews. Just haven't made it there yet.

    But, let us know where you go and what you think!! :)

    I definitely will! L.A. just passed the ban on e-cigs in public here (boooo!). Just has to be signed by the mayor now. I don't vape anywhere I wouldn't smoke unless expressly allowed to, and I try not to vape where I know someone will walk into my cloud, etc. Sounds like it'll be fine. :)

    Ugh...that sucks!! I fear that will happen here as well, eventually....:(

    Enjoy your time in SF, it really is a fun and beautiful city. Very easy to get around on public transportation, which is nice!

    Alamo Square is a little off the beaten path...staying with friends?

    Yes, I love SF, I have lived there before but didn't vape (or smoke) then. :) I had a little studio at Polk & Market, not the safest area, but I loved it. And I love how dog-friendly it is.

    Alamo Square is indeed off the beaten path but I work for a company in Paris, France who loves using AirBnB when they travel. The guys coming out have a 3-bedroom apartment in Alamo Square and I picked up a studio for $110/night near them. Almost all of the hotels in SF are sold out for GDC, and what's left is really expensive. The cheapest thing I could find near the place we're demoing our game for the press (around 4th & Market) was $550/night. Not happening. :)
