Whether you’re looking for a bed stand or a one-night stand, the perfect gift or fun item to add to your personal collection, look no further than San Francisco’s Castro.

One Night Stands – Badlands

Shop at the late night meat market better known as Badlands if you’re looking to put another notch in the ‘ol bedpost. This bar is filled to the brim with European tourists, twins, and innocent out-of-towners every night. When it overflows, head across the street to its sister bar, Toad Hall.

A Beautiful Bouquet – Urban Flowers

The Looking-famous Urban Flowers Shop is filled with off-the wall varieties we guarantee you’ve never seen before as well as more than a few daddies to check out. From the classics to the oddest things you can image, a stop in this mom-and-pop flower shop is the perfect way to say whatever it is you want.
