2. The tourists
First of all, they’re good for the economy or whatever. Second (and more importantly), it’s really fun to watch them freeze their butts off while they cruise around in shorts and T-shirts in the middle of July. And fine, it’s nice to live somewhere people travel to visit ‘cause it makes you realize all over again why you chose to live here in the first place.
3. Haight St
Yes, it’s a nightmare on the weekends, and yes, there are a lot of things to hate about it, but Haight St turning into Chestnut St would be way worse than it staying just the way it is now. Head shops, sneaker stores, drug dealers, and all.
4. The Pizza Place on Noriega
Is it the best pizza in SF? Probably not. Do we love the laid-back vibe and the fact that you can order it by the slice? Absolutely.
5. Cheap dim sum on Clement St
No offense Yank Sing, but your dumplings are pricey. Delicious, but pricey.
