Neighborhood Walk 03/09/10

March 10, 2010

Went on a little walk today with Eva to explore and checked out some portions of Clement street, Sacramento street, California street, and Geary boulevard. Some places of note:

Park Life store + gallery (Clement, b/t 3rd + 4th) reminds me of one of my favorite stores in LA. This store sells stuff that can only be described as great conversation starters–an incredible selection of design, architecture, and photography books, a host of jewelry designed by local artists, hip clothing (shirts + sweatshirts) from brands like Free Gold Watch, and a fun collection of artwork featuring Tuff Taco and his partners in crime Bad Burger and Pillaging Pita. [Ed. note: OK, the last one is my own creation. I bet he would taste awesome.] All in all, stores like this are usually my first stop for gifts–the products are always unique. Be sure to check the sardonic self-help books and entertaining portrait of the alien holding his rescue.

What is with San Francisco and chicken and waffles? Don’t get me wrong–a better combo of foods may never be found–but there is something special about the after-church crowd that hits a Roscoe’s in LA. At first glance, the unassuming Eats restaurant (Clement + 2nd) looks like your standard new-American breakfast spot. Upon closer inspection, I was won over with the farm-house aesthetic, chalkboard specials, and, most importantly, the menu. Can’t wait to check it out.

I’ve listed a couple other spots to check out on the map.
