If you’re out of things to do around here, you may well be doing it wrong. We at Paragon seek to rectify that problem with our Things to Do Guide, offering a whopping 789 ways to enjoy yourself in San Francisco this summer.
Let’s look at a few individual categories and our suggestions within them.
· Check here for an updated heatmap of al fresco opportunities, brought to you by Eater SF. Included are Dante’s Table, Brotzeit Lokal, Forge Pizza, Jamber Wine Bar, Lungomare and Toast Kitchen + Bar.
· Ah, that hotly debated category. This list from SFist offers a subjective view of the ten best places to score that SF delight: The Little Chihuahua in the Mission, La Taqueria in the Mission, Taqueria Cancun (multiple locations throughout the city), HRD Coffee Shop in SOMA, Taqueria los Coyotes in the Mission, La Tortilla in the Castro, Gordo (multiple locations throughout the city), El Castellito in Duboce Triangle, Cu Co’s in the Haight and Papalote (multiple locations throughout the city). While at least two of these are overrated, I’ll leave you to decide which ones fit that bill.
· San Francisco not only runs on the holy grail of caffeine, but on the sense of community found within the purveyors of such holiness. Herein we present SFist’s list of best coffee shops in the city: Trouble Coffee in the Outer Sunset, Bernie’s in Noe Valley, Blue Bottle in Mint Plaza, Saint Frank’s Coffee in Russian Hill, Reveille Coffee Company in Cole Valley (bonus points if you can spot Craigslist founder Craig Newmark), Sightglass Coffee (multiple locations throughout the city), Four Barrel in the Mission, The Mill on Divisadero, Coffee Bar (multiple locations throughout the city), Jane (multiple locations throughout the city), Ritual in the Mission and Mario’s Bohemian Cigar Store in North Beach.
