I found Bike The Bridge one day when several friends and I decided to go biking across the Golden Gate Bridge (close by to this store), but then discovered my bike wasn't working correctly. We found this store by luck and I was happy that I could join my friends on the bike trip. The employees there (there were only two or three that day) were nice, and renting a bike (first time I have ever rented a bike in my life) was quick and easy.
Went with a relative here (she has a newborn son) recently, and although I liked what I saw, she didn't like the place as much. She said the things are pricey (I wouldn't really know, since I don't shop for those types of products). Could be worth a look around for neat items that you may not have seen before.
The Warming Hut seems to be a good name for the store, as I looked around and saw tourists delighted that they could finally get away from the San Francisco wind near the Golden Gate Bridge. That aside, their souvenirs are pretty cool, some of which I do not remember seeing anywhere else. Good place for tourists to shop.
Dandelion is one of the coolest stores of its kind I have seen in San Francisco. Upon entering, you should notice that their staff is nice, friendly, and helpful. Elegant and unique things grace the entire store, all for a fairly low price.
I thought this place would be cool when I first heard of it (recommended to me by a friend who knows I like small bookstores), but I was pretty unimpressed upon leaving, empty handed. The prices are not anything special, the selection isn't too wide, and just in general, as a bookstore, it isn't too great.
In a neat little shop located in San Francisco's North Beach area, cards (more unique than tacky Hallmark-like ones), stationary (from cute to those that are touched with simplicity), t-shirts (with cool messages on them), and many more similar items may be found. I think it's a nice place to get friends birthday gifts (or side gifts).
Crossroads allow you to trade in your own clothes and get new ones from them, and if you are in the mood to search a bit through the store, chances are, good deals will be found. Decent staff, decent layout.
Went to Cris with a friend a while back, and was pretty surprised to find such a store. Granted, I'm male and do not wander into such stores on my own, but I still liked this place. My friend said the deals are good, and the customer service, well, I can tell that the person who was working there that day was very, very nice.
My friend is a member of Mission Cliffs Climbing & Fitness, and because his membership came with two guest passes a month for free, he decided to bring me along. I had a load of fun as I did wall-walling for the first in my life. The staff there were awesome - motivating and very friendly. I think it's a bit pricey, but that's probably only because I'm not used to paying for these types of activities. I recommend wall-climbing to anyone who is looking for a new type of activity to try, and if you are planning to go wall-climbing in the San Francisco Bay Area, I highly recommend Mission Cliffs Climbing & Fitness.
I have been to more very many bowling alleys throughout the years, and Serra Bowl is my favorite place to bowl. There are enough lanes so that even at the most crowded times, you will not have to wait long for lanes. Good place for friends to go bowling together and have fun. Most of the people who play here are those in their late teenage years (young adults) to those in their late twenties and early thirties. There are also a lot of families who bowl here, but I do not recommend bowling here past midnight as it may get a bit dangerous. Decent regular prices, but they have really nice deals that take place several times a week, like a "happy hour" price. Good music that's blasted all the time, but not so loud that you cannot hold a conversation with your friends and family members. They also have some arcades and pool tables so that you can show off your alternative skills if bowling isn't what you're the best at.
