3.6 miles in Cow Hollow


What a great walk.


Well, except for one thing:


Someone did not consult the weather map before trekking into the depths of the city, miles from BART. :(


Fortunately, I found sanctuary in my home away from home until the rain passed.



The area I walked tonight is smashed between Cow Hollow, the Marina and Pacific Heights.  To be honest, I'm not sure what it's technically called.  I think "Cow Hollow" is a funny name, so that's the one I'm gonna use.  Plus, it has to be Cow Hollow because it is home to the best steaks in the city at Bobo's.

[Editor's Note: John O., a resident of this neighborhood, has confirmed that it is indeed Cow Hollow.  See his comment below for interesting trivia!]



According to an informant (the guy standing next to me on the bus), Perry's has a great $9 burger/beer special on Mondays.  I will need to confirm and get back to you on that.


Union Street is pretty sweet.  The entire street is peppered with cool food and shopping.



I love the look of this theater.  Can anyone tell me if it's alive and well?  The blank marquee is not a good sign...


As for public institutions, this neighborhood is home to Sherman School,


...Allyne Park,


...a museum with insanely complicated hours,


...and this building.


Oh, and in case you're one of "those people," there is also a Lionel Trains store.

  1. You were in my neighborhood! I'm at Filbert and Franklin. It is indeed Cow Hollow - dairy farming was popular here in the late 1700s/early 1800s. And that theater is sadly closed!

  3. Is that funky building a church? It's really cool looking, but looks like it might be lost... heeheehee!
