San Francisco gets crazy this time of the year. Which is why we've teamed up with Nordstrom to help you do it right. Here's the inside tip on SF's hottest holiday activities, paired up with the latest style picks from Nordstrom Men's Shop, so you can put together the perfect look for all your holiday plans.
NYE Luxe: New Year's Eve at Twenty Five Lusk
Ring in the New Year with champagne and caviar at SF's most stylish restaurant and lounge.
Two options: Choose from two dinner seatings, or head down to the lounge for cover-free cocktails and live music.
Nordstrom's Men's Shop makes it easy: Upgrade your everyday tweed for a chic velvet blazer. Pair it with black pants for a combo that's so much cooler than a suit. Get it here.

Worth the Drive: Weaver's Winter Wonderland in Rohnert Park
We're not sure what the genie from Aladdin has to do with Christmas, but any holiday light display handcrafted by the guy behind that trippy toothpick sculpture of SF is worth seeing in our book.
Park and walk: The neighbors have gotten in on the fun and are also showcasing Scott Weaver's handmade decorations. So bundle up and take your time.
Nordstrom's Men's Shop makes it easy: A shawl collar sweater and comfortable cords will take you from your holiday light tour to a wine country dinner afterwards. After all, you're already in the North Bay. Get it here.
Through Dec 31. 190 Cielo Cr., Rohnert Park.
Nearby: Hopmonk Tavern; The Barlow; Glen Ellen Star
Down with Dungeness: Waterbar’s Crab Salad
Skip the heavy stuff in favor of the moist and buttery Dungeness crab salad freshly added to Waterbar’s menu just in time for the commercial season.
What’s in it: Two succulent ounces of fresh crabmeat atop mache (aka fancy lettuce), zucchini, and borage flowers.
Nordstrom Men's Shop makes it easy: A Zachary Brell plaid sport shirt with a contrasting tie from Gitman adds a little edge to this Brooks Brothers argyle vest. Get it here.
Through the season. 399 The Embarcadero South, SoMa (415-284-9922). Nearby: Prospect; Rosa Mexicano; Americano
