2.8 miles in the Inner Richmond
On the official scale known globally as "Would Allison Baltzersen Live Here," the Inner Richmond gets a five out of five. I love this hood! The houses are really charming and...
...it has everything you need, from a showroom of lamps...
...to free comforter giveaways.
It also has a high incidence of Thai restaurants. (Extra point for that!)
It has an old timey motel for guests...
...and a brand spankin' new library for locals.
Oh, and it is home to the large Star of the Sea elementary school.
I realized tonight that after a year and a half of walks, I have yet to give proper love to the Bay Area's own See's Candies. So here it is: See's Chocolate is mighty fine! My personal favorites are the candies called Toffee-ettes. What's really fun is to watch the girls behind the counter rapidly assemble a variety box of chocolates to your specs... it's an artform.
Have you hit 23rd and California yet? Stop at 211 Pizzetta. The space has a good vibe. Before it was a pizza place it was a bakery called Mary's for about 20 years. Before that it was a barber shop, but before that it was a church where they would worship light. Pretty funky little spot.ReplyDelete
I have been by there, but I didn't stop in :( I will definitely go back to check out 211 Pizzetta, though. Sounds like a very cool spot - thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
