The Magazine: The Tenderloin’s Awesome Vintage Magazine Shop

Thanks to Paula W. for the photo Wow I’m really amazed people don’t talk about this one more, it’s definitely one of those places that deserves mention in as many conversations as possible. It literally has one of the biggest archives of porno mags I’ve ever seen, and what’s remarkable

Bow Bow Cocktail Lounge

The Goddess herself! photo from Anne B. on Yelp I’m going to say this in the most plain and honest way I can: I’m pretty sure Candy, the bartender at Bow Bow, is Dionysus disguised as a human being.  It’s the only logical way to explain the way she handles

The Hobby Company of San Francisco

Too cool to spend your leisure time playing video games, lurking on facebook, or doing drugs? Do you wanna impress that cute emo kid at the coffeeshop with your knitting abilities? Are you an out of touch shut in who is frightened by the world around you and wishes to

El Cachanilla

If I were to guess what El Cachanilla translates to in English it would be, ‘œnot fucking around’. I know that’s not the translation at all, but seriously, this place makes all the other taquerias in the Mission look like total pussies. Sure I’ve seen other taquerias that sell tacos

Atlas Cafe

There is a lot to like about this place. Excellent sandwiches (all under $7), a beautiful outdoor patio, live music Thursday thru Saturday nights, and all the lovely tattooed/pierced/bicycle riding hipsters you can stomach. An added bonus is that the café subscribes to a bunch of good magazines and has
