Chicken & Waffles, Indian Summers and Vespas

San Francisco Knights by People Under the Stairs on Grooveshark

We love hearing the stories behind the stuff folks are selling on Yardsale. We caught up with Deny, who’s selling this beautiful Vespa, and got its backstory: “I got the Vespa a year ago…On one of those amazingly warm Indian summer nights, we cruised along the Embarcadero. We took in the sights: AT&T Park, the Bay Bridge, the Ferry Building, and stopped off at Pier 39.” Deny had just moved into the city, and we can’t imagine a better way to get a feel for a city than riding around on a Vespa, one we around the office are lovingly referring to as The Silver Bullet. Has a nice ring, right? Look at this beauty and tell us it’s not perfect for cruising around San Francisco…

Any story worth its salt mentions good food. Deny didn’t disappoint. “I love getting into the side streets and going down alleys in the SOMA, especially zipping over to Little Skillet for their fried chicken and waffles on Ritch Street. It’s a tiny window and everyone sits on the loading dock in the alley to eat.” Well, we know where we’re going for lunch today.

Be sure to give Deny a high five if you see him walking around the city. He probably won’t be on his Vespa, ‘cause this thing’s gonna sell fast.
