This is our neighborhood paper, The Grapevine. It is a wonderful little paper that gets us interested in helping our own community. There are always intersting topic and articles as well as the fact that our local businesses can buy add space and tell us they exist! It is a wonderful little paper with lots of character and for sure lots to say!
I bought my first Honda at San Francisco Honda, a few months back. Their sales people are very knowledgeable and easy to work with. The sales person even walked me around the dealership to the service and parts areafor when I need to bring my car in. They parts and service people there were also very nice and helpful. I would for sure recommend San Francisco Honda to anyone looking to buy a new or used car!
Wow this is a great bookstore. They carry a lot of books by the not so known authors as well. They are always having book signings and the authors coming in to read. It is very clean and indeed well Lighted. Their children's section is wonderful and organized nicely for good book picking (for the appropriate age of the child). They are a must go to book store in San Francisco.
I went today for my first fitness class and boy did it kick my butt! I would recommend this fitness center to you all. It is more expensive that 24 hour fitness but well worth it if you ask me. I dont like to have to remember to bring toiletries and a towel each time and with Club One I dont have to! They are provided for free. They have a ton of classes to choose from as well.
This little independant gem is one of the best toy stores in San Francisco. I would MUCH rather spend my time and money at Ambassador Toys than at any Toys R Us chain. They have very unique and mentally stimulating toys that are for learning and fun. They have a wonderful staff that are eager to help you make a decision be it for your own child or a gift for someone else. I would recommend them to anyone.
Alic Fong Yu Elementary School is one the the top elementary schools in the city. Their students consistently score very high on test and the school is in the top 5 every year in the Bay Area. It is conveniently located by bus and has many spots to drop your kids off every morning for school. They also have a chinese immersion program that is just terrific. I would highly recommend this school to any parent.
If you want the best for yourself and your child I would recommend having your baby at California Pacific Medical Center. They are second to none in the field. I had such a wonderful experience with them that I am planning for our second child and am sure we will be there for the labor.
We got our daughters crib at the Lullaby Lane Clearance Center. It was brand new in the box and just georgous and MUCH less than other retailers. They also have carseats and strollers and bedding as well available at clearanced prices in their separate clearance store. Well worth the trip.
Lullaby Lane is one of the best palces to find unique baby gifts and gear. They have their own variations of almost anything. You can buy anything from bottles to slings and test drive many types of strollers. They are on the expensive side, but not much more than the regular chain stores and well worth it.
We purchased granite floor tiles from Best Tile, a few months back. At the time they said they had PLEANTY of matching countertops for our tile and to not worry about buying the countertops at that time as they were sure they would not sell out. We went back the next week to get the matching countertops and they were OUT. They were not at all appologenic and said you can buy a different one that was close (but really it was not that close) but it is about 8X the price of the one we originally wanted! We were very upset. They also said they were not getting anymore anytime soon. If we had known they would run out we would have bought the countertops at the same time! So instead of a matching countertop for $150 we had to purchase one that did not match for $850. Needless to say we were QUITE upset! We will NOT be returning to their store. Just for happenstance we were in the neighborhood a month later and THEY HAD THE MATCHING COUNTERTOPS AGAIN at the low price! I think they just wanted us to spend a lot more money in there. I wish we didnt go in.............
PROS: Cheap and great quality
CONS: If you see it you have to get it today because it may not be there tomorrow
