Chic Fillmore Street’s upcoming Wine & Food Festival October 6-8, 2014
Pacific Heights, a neighborhood that I call home which many people know about because of its wealthy residents including the Getty’s, Trainas and more recently techy’s buying the fabulous houses on Broadway and Pacific Streets. Aside from the wealthy residents of Pacific Heights, it’s also known as a San Francisco’s shopper’s delight. Fillmore Street offers an array of merchants ranging from Fashion to Restaurants to Bars and Cafes. See the full list of Fillmore Street Merchants. You may be wondering, what are the JetSetting Fashionista’s favorite spots on Fillmore Street? To help you get started I’ll share a few of my favorites in case you’re new to the area and need some direction! Jonathan Adler, Alice & Oliva, Athleta, Bun Mee, Jane Cafe, La Boulange, Le Labo, Mudpie, & Heidi Says, Out The Door, Palmer’s, SPQR, State Bird Provisions & The Grove. Fillmore Street is CLEARLY a destination for both shopping and culinary enjoyment and the upcoming Fillmore Wine & Food Festival is the perfect way to combine all of those fabulous things!
For those wanting the in the know about local San Francisco Events, or better yet local Pacific Heights events, be sure to grab a ticket now for the upcoming three-day Fillmore Wine & Food Festival held October 6th-8th, 2014. I attended the festival in the Spring with girlfriends and enjoyed a leisurely Saturday afternoon strolling, shopping and sipping along Fillmore Street. It was a great way to get out on a Saturday, support the local shops, the Ronald McDonald House (the event Beneficiary), restaurants, and bars and experience fabulous wines all just a few blocks from my doorstep.
