0052--Haight and Ashbury
Took us remarkably little time to find street parking in this busy neighborhood--the fates were smiling--and set out walking about, checking out all the shops in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. Naturally, Ron was able to sniff out the nearest accordions and test-drove a really fancy (but insanely overpriced) one. I picked up a few little things at a couple of shops, then we stopped for lunch at a place called the Pork Store Cafe. Didn't get the scoop on the name, but there was lots of great non-pork food to be had. Walked around some more, then went to the Victorian Punch Room, a nifty, old bar that serves three kinds of signature punches in addition to the regular bar standards. Very cool place.
