"This walk will begin in the heart of Cole Valley, just a stone's throw
away from the bustling Haight Ashbury district. From there, we'll wind
our way through Cole Valley, down Hugo Street, admiring the historic
Victorians and small neighborhood businesses along the way. We'll then
stroll down Irving Street, the Inner Sunset's commercial hub, spotted
with small businesses and restaurants. We'll make a quick pit stop at
Arizmendi Bakery, a worker-owned cooperative bakery and gourmet pizza
establishment, launched by the same folks behind Berkeley's famous
Cheesboard Collective. After grabbing some snacks and perhaps a cup of
coffee, we'll make our way to the breathtaking Tiled Steps at 16th and
Moraga - an intricate mosaic mural spanning 163 steps up the hill!
We'll slowly climb the steps, take in city views from the top of the
hill and make our way back through the sunset over to Golden Gate Park.
Weather permitting, participants are enouraged to grab some wine and a
baguette and continue the good conversations over a picnic in the park."
