Dogpatch

Neighborhood Guide: What to Do in Dogpatch

Located on the waterfront and once home to large warehouses, canning factories, industrial buildings, shipyards, and wild fennel fields, Dogpatch has turned into a hub of local makers, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs. Just hop on the T-Third to enjoy the assorted retail shop and restaurants, or simply enojy soaking up some sun on the waterfront.

On October 25, San Francisco's most forward-thinking leasers explored cutting edge loft living at 2235 Third Street.

The east side of town just got a whole lot more happening, thanks to development firm CityView's unveiling of the gorgeous new 196-unit, luxury LEED-certified multifamily community just two miles from downtown. It's in one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in the city, near job hubs and a ton of public transportation.

Dogpatch Nonprofit, Switchboard, Improves Healthcare in Africa Via Mobile

Of the 42,000 Liberian refugees Eric Woods and Craig Edelman saw living in Ghana camps in 2005, nearly every one possessed a cellphone. Water and electricity were scarce, diseases like malaria and typhoid were common, and at many camps, there was just one resident doctor to tend to thousands of people who had nothing except for phone technology at their fingertips.

N.I.C.E. Collective Moving Sale this Thursday

N.I.C.E. Collective is closing up their futuristic Castro digs. The SF-based, rugged-military-meets-urban-tech outfitter is packing up and hopping over to the Dogpatch (near their HQ). We're sad to see the amazing Market St. boutqiue (dubbed the Mobile Supply Unit) close, but we're guessing the new Dogpatch space will be nothing short of extraordinary.

The Dogpatch: Your Next Shopping Destination?

It’s an unlikely neighborhood to lay claim to the next hot shopping destination in San Francisco, but, nevertheless, the Dogpatch seems destined for that distinction, thanks to the long-anticipated opening later this month of the new MAC—Modern Appealing Clothing store inside a 170-year-old building renovated to house a collaborative project featuring the aforementioned retailer, Blue Bottle Coffee, Piccino Restaurant and DIG wine bar.

Scheduled to open on the 14th, the Minnesota Street complex is one we’ve been eyeing for so very long now.

Countdown to V-Day: Au Coeur Des Chocolats

My boyfriend will tell you that chocolate doesn't last more than an hour at our house—especially if it's a solid bar of something dark, very dark. But the nine-piece box from Au Coeur Des Chocolates (hand-dipped in Dogpatch) made me pause—enough to slow down for two whole days and appreciate the jewel-like bonbons, each no bigger than a stamp, with their delicate, air-brushed designs. There's something artful about the speckled ginger, the way the geodesic shell snaps and gives way to spiced, dark, and smooth ganache with wild honey. My eyes went for the passion fruit heart covered in fine white couverture; the buttery shell perfectly balances the bright, creamy fruit.

First Bite: Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous

Now that we're in the thick of summer I'm doing what I always do when the weather turns warm: eating ice cream nearly every single day. I know that health-wise this probably isn't the best move, but with only a finite number of sunny days to mess around with, I try and cram my annual allottment into a few short months (oddly, Boston is the top ice cream consuming city in the whole country, despite the 9 months of winter).
