Today weâ€™re taking a look around San Francisco, touring various locations in different sections of the city in order to view whatâ€™s new, whatâ€™s old, and whatâ€™s all around fabulous.
Our first stop isÂ Nob Hill. Here we are visiting a small but elegant five story, eleven unit residential condominium building that at this time has two available units.Â 1083 Clay street, designed byÂ Donald Macdonald Architects, is currently the highest wood frame building in San Francisco. It features an exterior finished in Stucco, two top floors with panoramic views, curved bay windows, and a small formal garden. This is opportunity to own a property in one of San Franciscoâ€™s most affluent districts also allows you to neighbor with the four most expensive and popular hotels in the city:Â The Fairmont,Â Mark Hopkins Intercontinental,Â The Stanford, andÂ The Huntington. Donâ€™t forget the majesticÂ Grace Cathedral, our copy of Franceâ€™s Notre Dame, which stands as one of the largest Cathedrals in the entire city that just so happens to be situated right before the magical oasis that isÂ Huntington Park. Donâ€™t miss out!Â (photos via sfweekly.com and bayareaforsale.com)
Our next stop has new doors that have just recently been opened in theÂ Mission District. Letâ€™s give a warm welcome to Manuel Godinoâ€™s new simple spanish cuisine hot spot,Â Venga. Noted for their multi flavored empanadaâ€™sÂ VengaÂ is certainly making a small but mighty splash in the Mission District. Not only are they serving small well priced pockets of heaven but also things such as Spanish potato salad which consist of roasted potatoes, carrots, bacon, hardboiled eggs, parsley, peas, and lemon aioli, in addition to serving traditional Argentine desserts. Stop in for a taste today;Â VengaÂ is located atÂ 443 Valencia St. (photo via vengaempanadas.com)
Continuing along our journey, we now find ourselves inÂ Noe Valley. You must love books and/or artsy design in order to appreciate this next place.Â Press Works On PaperÂ located atÂ 3492 22nd Streetat Dolores St, puts a snazzy and unique spin on book buying while presenting items such as hard to find art, graphic design wrapping paper, vintage staplers, tabletop made letter pressed cards, out-of-print and hard to find fashion books, and of course several classic novels, this is truly a place where book worms and fashionistaâ€™s unite!
Our next stop isnâ€™t just designated to one particular area of the city.Â SF Chefs,Â San Franciscoâ€™s premier food, wine, and spirits festival presented by Visa Signature is set on Union Square as well as various other venues around the city. It allows attendeeâ€™s to mingle with master chefs, mixologist, and winemakers as well as eat, drink, and indulge in a good time all in the name of gourmet dining. The events begin July 9th and carry on until August 7th.Â (photovia sfchefs2011.com)
And our final stop brings us back to the Mission District where housing activists organized and performed a rally to raise awareness and call attention to an abandoned 43 unit Mission District building. The group of 50 some odd activists put on this demonstration with the intent of calling the community to reclaim what they referred to as â€œa waste of housingâ€ with hopes of reclaiming that vacant property for homeless families and individuals. With the economy still residing on the grounds of uncertainty and the amount of citizens finding themselves unceremoniously put out into the streets due to lack of funds, you canâ€™t at all fault this group for their admirable demonstration. It is our hope that these heart felt efforts didnâ€™t go to waste and the valid point of this entire rally was conveyed well enough to be heard, understood, and tended too by those capable of handling these matters.
