DEW--I agree. San Francisco Aquarium is awesome. The petting tanks are so
interesting and engaging-for kids, teens and adults. Sea cucumbers and star fish
and baby leopard sharks, soft as velvet. And petting the bat rays, who are as

incorporates some of the proven wonderful features of San Francisco.
A move by the aquarium to get more visitors, a move by Draper to get tax

better crowd. Still, it's quite a feat to keep a big fishtank profitable in
