I went to the San Francisco DMV earlier today to get my hands on the
Driver’s Handbook (gotta study for that test), and along the way I
spent some time at the Haight. I haven’t been there in two years, and
I’ve forgotten how much I love it. The shops, the restaurants, the
cafes, Buena Vista Park, the beautiful houses… I wish I could afford
to live there. Heck, I’d settle for any of the surrounding areas — the
Castro, Inner Sunset, Noe Valley — I just want to be near it. How can
one not love a neighborhood with a shop that has a pair of fishnet-cladded legs hanging out of it?
I had a cup of blueberry ice cream from B&J’s, stopped by Kid Robot to have a look around, and bought a sheer top from Behind the Post Office. I would’ve gone to Giant Robot too but the bus had just arrived.
I should really go back more often.
