The SHOP SF, GET MORE campaign was announced this week.

For the next two months, about 170 San Francisco businesses are offering discounts to residents of the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area. This group includes residents of zip codes 94000 through 95100 {(San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, Napa, Sonoma, Contra Costa, Alameda, Solano and Santa Clara). All one has to do, is show a driver's license or ID card as proof of residence in one of these zip codes.

The discounts run the gamut from stores to restaurants to hotels to City parking garages to shows to boat tours to museums.

A full list is available on the SHOP SF web site and many participating merchants will be displaying signs to indicate their participation in the program.

Taking a quick look at the web site, these are some offers that tempt me:

* Ride MUNI on Sundays, through February 1, and your transfer is good all day; i.e., one fare gets you everywhere!

* Buy 2 tickets to a Beach Blanket Babylon performance and get two boxes of candy and a commemorative book free.

* Get 30% off the regular ticket price at Teatro Zinzanni for Tuesday and Thursday performances in December.

* Carpool to San Francisco and get an hour or two free parking at City run garages...only for 3 or 4 passengers in a single car, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

* Stay at the SF Hilton and receive a $50 dining coupon at Urban Tavern for each night's stay.

* Many San Francisco hotels will pay your occupancy tax and/or give discounts of 10 to 20%.

* San Francisco Museum of Modern Art gift shop offers a free gift with a purchase of $25 or more...this applies also to their SFO shop.

* Dine at the Cliff House during the week and get a free dessert.

* Dine at the InterContinental San Francisoc and get free house wine with each entree ordered.

* Get 10% off any purchase at the Roosevelt Tamale Parlor (one of SF's best for authentic Mex.)

* 10% off selected Richart Chocolates boxed collections.

* Pay for one adult Blue & Gold Fleet cruise and get a second free.

* Get discounts on GoCar GPS-Guided Tours.

* 15% off some Hornblower Cruises...brunch, lunch, or dinner.

See you around town!
