Even More Secret Places in San Francisco – February 15, 2008

In no particular order, here are some more of my favorite secret places. You can go and check my previous entries about secret places here and here too!

1. Ft. Mason’s Park within a Park

Once you enter Fort Mason from Bay Street, continue all the way to the back of the road where it forms a cul-de-sac. From there, follow the sign about the U.S. Senator dying from a dual, and pounce down the stairs that you’ll see in front of you. Next thing you know, you’ll be in a secret park within Ft. Mason.

2. X21

Feel like buying a submarine door? Want a sculptural “root” chair? Are you dying for Faux Brontosauras Leg Bar Stool? I know just the place for you, but you’ve got get your lazy self to the Mission (mind the crack pipes and needles on the ground). It’s called X21, and it’s a monument to all those rare antiques, furniture, and trinkets you wished you owned. Head to 890 Valencia Street (@20th) to check it out.

3. Taquria Cancun

Annoyingly bright yellow paint, more piñatas then you can handles, Coca-Cola from Mexico (pure sugar cane), and all the tasty Mexican food you can handle. I love this place, and it’s cheap, fast, and always a crowd pleaser. Scoot yourself to 2288 Mission Street (between 18th St & 19th St) to grab some grub.

4. Blue Bottle Coffee next to the Mint

Using a miniscule six-pound batch roaster, Blue Bottle Coffee only sells coffee 48 hours out of the roaster. Plus, they have the most awesome brewing station.

Sorry Shark, I thought Audium was important enough to have a whole post dedicated to it ;)
