I think you've got to take the entire Bay Area into consideration when you're talking about San Francisco. There are a ton of things to do in the Bay Area as a whole. Dont just look at the city. The city has turned into a primarily work-business district. People live there, etc...but if you're looking to do things, usually you have to leave the city.
Within the city:
Numerous conferences and shows at Moscone Center
Giants games at SBC Park (formerly Pac Bell)
Museum of Natural Sciences in Golden Gate Park
49ers games at Candlestick in about a month
Numerous comedy clubs and dance clubs (IMO the best is Ruby Skkye)
Brown Bear Brewery
Outside the city, all accessible via BART. Which is IMO the most awesome public transportation system outside of Europe.
Numerous food places
UC Berkeley (which actually has a lot of cool publicly accessible *&^%) ~ including their law library. at least this summer it was.
San Jose/ Dublin / Pleasanton:
IMAX Theatres (theres one at Metreon also)
anyways...i'm bored of listing *&^%. Theres tons of things to do in SF, and yes, like most big cities, SF is pretty dirty. Dont knock the city until you've been there a little longer. It'll grow on you. I promise.
