President Barack Obama is making it a habit of spending time in the Bay Area as he ramps up his 2012 re-election campaign with another visit to San Francisco on February 16.

The fundraising rally will include a dinner at the San Francisco home of novelist Robert Mailer Anderson and his wife Nicola Miner. Price tag: $35,800 per person. The dinner will also feature a musical performance, although the artist has not been disclosed at this time.

Following the dinner, President Obama will be delivering a speech and attend a reception at the Regency Center. Tickets for the 6 p.m. event start at $100 and go as high as $7500 for preferred seating and a photo with President Obama. The reception will also feature a performance from Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell.

The president last visited San Francisco in October for a fundraising event. His wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, is scheduled to visit the Bay Area in March.
