Here is a place called 826 Valencia.
It is a writing center that helps kids 8-18 with writing skills. It worked so well in San Francisco, there are now 826’s in NYC, LA, Ann Arbor, Chicago, and Seattle.
It is a pretty great idea on its own, but the one in SF is especially cool, because they have “San Francisco’s only independent pirate supply store” that raises money for the non-profit.
They have a website.
You can get to it from the link.
It is rather delightful.
Not only because it is witty
but because of knowing what it is part of.
Go look around the store site, and your mouth will probably curve upwards.
