I’ve been to the Bay Area quite a few times, but this time around took me to new neighborhoods and areas. This trip I made it over to Oakland and found a hip downtown that was more affordable than San Francisco. Within the city limits, I found my way to Hayes Valley, which is a neighborhood well on its way to hipsterville. It is full of fancy specific stores, cafes, and a bunch of shops housed in containers. Hayes Valley did indulge one of my favorite things about SF of tasty food and drink. While in Hayes Valley, I got to drink Ritual coffee in the outdoor container park and I ate flash frozen ice cream from Smitten. Yum!
