This is quite possibly the coolest, most awe-inspiring place in San Francisco. It is a pirate store that is actually a nonprofit tutoring place for students! "826 Valencia is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages six to eighteen with their writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write." I love this place so much I just bought their "Beards are the New Black" T-shirt online. If you live in San Francisco, you definitely should check out this place!
