I have an affinity with coffee beans, recording (in my head) what shop carries what. I often ask or chat the nice baristas about it. Also enhances my coffee experience. Anyhow, stopped by a San Francisco favorite recently. Farley’s Coffee was my lifesaver during school, when not too many shops back then opened later than 8pm (they open til 10pm)
For a long time, they carried local Mr.Espresso beans but, have recently made the switch to (also local) Sunrise Coffee. ‹more info from their site here›
Other than that (and making an appearance in that one movie, Sweet November (see the scenes -scroll halfway to here), they have the best city skyline view out of Potrero Hill. Good stuff.
Taking a break from Bookfest we went to a beautiful hill little area that is usually packed with tourists. Below this area is Fort Mason, which hosts many events throughout the year and this National Landmark is also home for arts/creative classes for the SF City College, and other things (SFMOMA Artists Gallery, a restaurant, etc).
Since it is past ‘summer’ there are some tourists up there, but loads of locals too. Gorgeous views and so clear.
I strongly believe in personal choice when it comes to helmets. Weather you decide to wear one or not, it is your decision. There are multiple discussions between the topic, riding, style, city structure, traffic, etc. But that is not this post’s purpose.
However, I just found interesting the consecutive manner of the pictures I recently shot, with a common (missing) denominator: a helmet. Let’s be safe out there my pretties!
I want to think he is checking both sides before crossing, though I think it was a headphone readjustment. Cute bike though!
**on a personal note: Van Ness is a freeway-like avenue, Polk street located just one block east, has slower traffic & a bike lane. -xo
