Name: Zenophon Abraham

Hometown: San Francisco, California

1. Where do you like to flirt?

Pretty much anywhere. Bar, rapid transit, football stadium, dark part of a dive place.

2. Where’s your favorite table for two?

– I like the 21 Club in New York, The Alley in Oakland, and The Balboa Cafe in San Francisco — three different places but all have history and two are darkly romantic (the Balboa’s too well-lit).

3. Where should we stay when we visit (besides your place)?

Hmm. I like the Claremont Resort in the Oakland Hills. Great views, pool, tennis, and food, too!

4. What qualities do you find irresistible in a woman?

Hmm, again. I really like intellect and good character. OK, I melt at the view of a pair of athletic legs on a woman, but if they’re connected to a person of low character and cold heart, I’m easily turned off. I like women who know how to maintain relationships, even if we’re just friends.

5. Where can we find you on a free Sunday afternoon? Just roll over?

At times I’m at an outdoor restaurant. Or I may work at an Internet Cafe. Maybe the gym. Depends.

6. What do you love most about your city (besides our arrival)?

I like the fact that I know everyone from the Mayor to the cab drivers. I feel connected in Oakland; I just wish my Mom was here rather than Georgia as she’s my only family.

7. What should we bring when we visit your town? What should we leave with?

Bring a jacket and shorts — ok short-shorts. It gets warm during the day, hot at times, then it cools down fast. But I’ve got to see those legs! :)

8. What do we absolutely have to see while we’re there?

You have to see the Golden Gate Bridge. No matter how long I’ve been in the Bay Area, that site is enduring.

9. Any areas of town we should avoid?

Frankly it’s hard to pinpoint one area anymore as it seems crime is happening all over, from Berkeley to SF, to Oakland. I’d just plain be careful period.

10. Any local secrets you want to share?

Well…Valleywag has a certain sex writer who used to have “clients” if you know what I mean. (No, I was not one of them.)
