Candy Land on Lombard Street in San Francisco

Candyland What better way to show off the crookedest street in the world than by coating it with candy?

To celebrate Candy Land's 60th anniversary, 575 feet of switchbacks in the Russian Hill neighborhood were transformed into a life-size version of the board game.

Kids from the UC San Francisco Children's Hospital and Friends of the Children competed in a round of Candy Land, which makes my girlhood fantasyland, FAO Schwarz, look like child's play.

The real icing on the cake is the treat the kids got at the finish line. Check out this cake that Debbie Does Cakes baked for the event.

Hungry for more? Check out SFist's photo gallery. Consider yourself warned: This might spur a midmorning trip to the vending machine.

Chris Reynolds from the Travel section just wrote a great piece on the Ferry Bldg. and all the great eats there. Would be worth a read for you. My personal fav restaurant in SF is Dosa. Check it out! Amazing Southern Indian food. Also, if you're there on the 28-30 check out the Outside Lands Festival. Pitty you won't be in the city this weekend--it's the street food fest!

One more thing, any special recommendation on what is "Must See in SF"? This will be our 1st time as a pleasure trip.

Thank you for the info, we are going to SF next week and we will check this out.

Pitty they weren't playing Monopoly at the Pacific Stock Exchange Building....
