And lo, Mayor Lee and his awesome mustache came down from that one crazy-steep incline to the top of Pac Heights with two tablets and a bottle of Fernet, and gave unto the people of the City by the Bay a list of 31 commandments, wheretofor if followed, the citizens of SF may live happily with lives full of sustainably farmed, locally sourced foodstuffs and mixology. And the tablets read:
1. Have a favorite coffee
And it can't be Starbucks. Philz, Blue Bottle, Ritual, Sightglass, Four Barrel, De La Paz, Reveille -- they're all right here, and they're all pretty damn good. Be prepared to defend your choice, too. And if you don't drink coffee... who are you? Do you even go here?
2. Just keep walking when in the Tenderloin
Chances are, they're not talking to you. And if they are, it still might not be in your best interest to stop.
