It is currently 7 a.m., 51° and headed toward 63°, with mostly sunny skies.
This year I’ve been seen many news websites recommending that readers visit the Mission District. The latest is Reuters:
The traditionally working-class Latino neighborhood is now a mix of hip bars and restaurants that bump up against long-time taquerias and small stores. For some of the best tacos and burritos in town try La Taqueria at Mission and 25th Street.
For something trendier try Foreign Cinema, Bar Tartine or Delfina, which are neighborhood favorites. Bi-Rite creamery, across from Dolores Park, serves imaginative ice-cream flavors. Walk to the top of the hill in the park to take in a spectacular view of the city at dusk.
After dinner, follow the crowds to the corner of 17th and Valencia and choose from dozens of bars for a drink. Blondies is a popular meeting spot. Etcetera wine bar showcases an impressive selection of wines with flatbreads and tapas. For some music, head to the neighborhood bar Amnesia.
Weather permitting, this could be a good day to go to the park after leaving work early.
