San Francisco Guide
A wide mix of womens apparel, home accessories, books, magazines, greeting cards, cookware, rugs, plants, pots, etc. Designed by architect co-owner Mason St Peter and married to the artist co-owner Serena Mitnik-Miller, it's a really nice space with great product. In the back of the store there is a succulent garden / greenhouse where they sometimes teach workshops.
Awesome mens boutique. Patrick Ervell, Porter, White Mountaineering, Nonnative, Our Legacy, Band of Outsiders etc.
Just reopened after a lengthy remodeling, it's now twice the size and just as beautiful with raw barn wood finishes, and a large modern bar and still with outdoor seating. The menu changes seasonally, so good.. the brunch is fantastic. Within walking distance of Trouble Coffee, Mollusk Surf Shop, and The General Store.
Amazing, family owned, tiny little Japanese yakitori restaurant. Bacon wrapped mochi!
Heading on a weekend trip to Napa is awesome. It's only about an hour or so north of the city. The Carneros Inn is a large compound with multiple pools, spa, restaurants, etc. and it's just in the country.. so you get to relax and visit the country side or relax in your private yard behind your little bungalow.
Big Sur is a bit of a drive south, a few hours at least, but some of the most beautiful scenery in the US. Amazing forest all around you. There are plenty of really nice spas / hotels to stay at too, like Ventana.
