This course is wonky for the following reasons: 1) I was aiming for a smoothie stand; 2) the street got very steep post-smoothie purchase so I aborted my planned course in favor of walking downhill on Dolores to check out the Castro Library. It has a fireplace!
I was in the mood for a smoothie as I started my walk, so I headed toward Yelp favorite, Sidewalk Juice. Unfortunately, while Yelp says Sidewalk is open until 7pm, the fellow inside begged to differ when I arrived at 6:15. Apparently they close at 6:00pm during the winter. :/
All was not lost, I wandered up Valencia and got a very fine smoothie at Herbivore.
While sipping on my smoothie, I enjoyed looking at the street art in the neighborhood.
This fence is quite something.
It appears to be an ongoing collaborative effort.
Who needs the other 45 reasons?
Only in the Mission.
