Re: Wife is 59
My company had an elegant party at the Palace Hotel once. One of my colleagues spent the night, and we met her & her DH there for brunch the following morning. Very pretty and unique, and the best hotel brunch I ever had (not that I've had many)--the food was fresh, varied, and tasty. But I'm more the eat at a funky place in the Mission, Chinatown, Clement, or noodle soup/sushi in Japantown fan myself. But if you live close enough to SF to take a ferry in, that may be old hat.

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find you get what you need.
