What we’ll do
Take your date for a drink, cruise the Mission in the becak (custom-built rickshaw imported from Indonesia), see some street art and scope out a restaurant for afterwards.
We’ll spend some time in the alleys exploring the murals and street art scene. Then, as the colorful evening lights of this vibrant neighborhood come on, we will cruise by some of the new COVID-safe restaurant parklets in the Mission until you find that perfect dinner spot.
On the ride I’ll share stories behind the art, show you hidden treasures of the neighborhood, and point out funky cafés, bars, and restaurants not always found by visitors.
Exploring the murals from the comfortable front seat of this becak is a once in a lifetime experience. The red leather seat, the lights, the five speaker sound system – such a romantic night out.
Where you’ll be
Clarion Alley, Lilac Mural Project, The Women’s Building and more… We’ll check out bars and restaurants around the Inner Mission, and can stop at one for a drink if you like. Take it to go; the becak has cupholders.
Where we’ll meet
24th Street Bar,
3336 24th Street
24th Street Bar is adjacent to the BART light rail system (24th and Mission stop.) Parking could be challenging but there is a public garage on 21st and Bartlett. This is a great bar to have a drink - maybe a cocktail or a coffee - before we set off on the adventure. There’s also a bathroom you can use here. I’ll be easy to find; there’s only one becak in San Francisco.
Book on Airbnb
The becak offers a comfortable, intimate ride for 1 or 2 people up to 400 lbs. combined. There’s a blanket to keep your legs warm, a five speaker sound system, and a canopy for rain, sun protection, or date night privacy.
