This storefront on Stanyan near Frederick has had a rough go of it. From a nail and tanning salon to a fitness studio, what will be next? Anyone have any guesses or better yet - what do you want to come to our neighborhood??
The Ice Cream Bar, at 815 Cole, and owner Juliet Pries are being featured tonight on the Cooking Channel in the San Francisco special of “Sweet Treats.” The segment airs tonight at 7, and if you tune in you can catch the Ice Cream Bar being featured as one of the most exciting dessert destinations in the city.
According to the Cooking Channel’s summary of the segment: “Owner Juliet Pries has crossed an old-timey soda fountain (complete with soda jerk) and flavor-forward creations, like the peppery Tiny Bubbles Float, the fruity Tropical Split, and the butterscotchy (and aptly-named) Too Good To Be True Milkshake.”
We’d just like to join you in raising a glass or two to the Ice Cream Bar. You can catch more about the segment, which also features Dandelion Chocolate and Craftsman & Wolves, right here.

American Cyclery, at Frederick and Stanyan, is rolling out plans for a parklet and adjacent green space.
American Cyclery, which makes claims to be the city’s oldest bike shop, is hosting a community meeting next Thursday, November 21 to unveil its plans for a parklet and green space next to the store’s 510 Frederick space. The meeting will be an open house in the store from 6 to 8 PM.
American Cyclery, with the blessings of Supervisor Breed and preliminary approval from the planning department, is planning to turn the odd triangle of pavement in front of the store into a parklet, and converting the adjacent paved parking lot into a green plaza..
The update, according to Bradley Woehl, of American Cyclery, would calm traffic at the intersection (presumably foot and bike). Woehl said the open house is intended to invite neighbors to provide input on the planning process and hear what the project will look like.

Last week there was a lot of talk on Twitter about this painting of a Viking that appeared in our neighborhood. @KayCockerill was able to snap this photo but wasn't able to give us the exact location. It seems as though a treasure hunt to find the Viking went underway and now we're happy to announce it's location!
You can now find this Viking on Beluah, between Stanyan and Shrader. Can't wait to see this one myself.
Thanks to our local CV resident, Paul for finding out the exact location!
We're assuming Claudio was a bit mistaken with the dates, considering Thursday is the 5th and Friday is the 6th.
The SFPD’s roundup report yesterday included a burglary in Cole Valley. The report spoke of a burglary that happened in the 800 block of Cole at Carl. A call to the SFPD was unable to confirm the exact location of the business, but likely options include the Ice Cream Bar, Kezar Bar and Crepes on Cole, probably in that order.
