Nothing sparks romance like sitting by a fire, and no we aren't talking about bundling up in your sleeping bag by a pile of burning cardboard in Ocean Beach. Ghirardelli Square recently lit up a fire pit—located in the middle of the square—that will be accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Why cave into a $14 martini in a loud bar when you can sit by a fire, enjoy a chocolate tasting or sip on hot cocoa? If things are going well, take the steps down to Aquatic Park's lookout point—a sweet spot for a smooch. Ghirardelli Square, West Plaza 900 North Point Street @ Larkin Street.
