The Weekly “Avocado”

Urban Hike. One of our favorite CARROTS shoppers, Alma, came in Saturday and was telling us about how she was going on an “urban” hike this weekend. I had to ask what that was exactly… she explained its a hike (or walk) anywhere in the city. Pick a neighborhood & explore. Alma and her girlfriends take turns choosing the location and they walk around and eat, shop, and wander through a neighborhood in the city! I loved this idea, so fun!
I want to start doing this with my girlfriends and thought I’d come up with the first location: the mission. Here are a few ideas.
Start @ Four Barrel Coffee for a latte… mmm, so good. I love sitting in there and just smelling the wonderful aroma.
Then you could stop next door @ Taylor Stitch and pick out one of their handmade shirts for your hubby, brother or someone cool… cause they’re great!
Now that you’ve had a little coffee in your system, you can head over to Dolores Park and “hike” around for a bit. Such a beautiful place to wander around on a sunny day.
After that I’m sure your appetite will be in full swing, so head down to Pizzeria Delfina (my all-time favorite pizza) and enjoy a lovely and delicious lunch. The broccoli rabe pizza is amazing.
Then wander down the street to Paxton Gate… this shop is so fun, you can spend hours there.
Also, when your walking down Valencia be sure to check out some of the cool antique and vintage shops along the way.
You should definitely circle back to 18th street and head into Bi-rite Market for some goodies to take home. Love going to the grocery.
And end off the afternoon with a scoop or two of homemade ice cream from Bi-rite Creamery…. heaven.
Sounds like a pretty good day to me, thanks for the idea Alma xx
