Also very well known in Ghiradelli Square is Kara's Cupcakes. Unfortunately, since I had that huge sundae, I did NOT feel up for one of Kara's cupcakes (a decision I now regret...because I can get a sundae anywhere, but I can't get Kara's cupcakes anywhere). So Jan had to be my tester. He decided on a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting, and chocolate sprinkles: I knew there was a reason we got along with him so well!

After we said goodbye to Jan, Chris and I came across the Musée Mécanique: "One of the world's largest privately owned collection of coin-operated mechanical musical instruments and antique arcade machines in their original working condition." This free museum was a very neat place to stumble upon. We spent a good hour or two perusing all the old fashioned machines.
This place was really neat. There were very old-fashioned games and also a "Rated X peep show" area, where for a penny, you could watch a flip book of a woman wearing...get this...a one piece bathing suit. It was pretty funny that the "Rated X" section would most definitely be "rated G" by today's standard. Here's a great video about the the Musée Mécanique from their website:
