7x7 Magazine's Ert O'Hara and Jessica Battilana take on San Francisco's pricey yet independent Valencia Street. They tackle such topics as where to get the best coffee (which they describe as an "intensely personal choice"), about overpriced restaurant Spork (which used to be an affordable KFC frequented by families), and hunting for "Prada shoes, Pucci slip dresses, Vivienne Westwood jackets and Chanel sunglasses" at Community Thrift (which used to be frequented by local madres looking for the cleanest pair of OshKosh B'Gosh overalls). While they report on nothing new for locals of the area, it provides some insight for those who haven't checked out the V-strip in ages.

Oh sure. Fine. We could blame the scribes at 7x7 Magazine ("it's like reading someone else's yearbook," a former SFist editor used to quip) for aiding in the alleged ruining of Valencia Street. But really, most of you have no one to blame but yourselves. You've made your boutique bed, now you must lie in it.

But we will be sure to check out Four Barrel. Thanks for the tip, Ert and Jessica!
