Mann With The Golden Brush --- Day 13/182

Walk: Hood

Distance: Not far; nursing aching feet

Signs can set the tone for an entire establishment's dining experience. So in this city of numerous, often famous bars and restaurants, talented sign painters are in great demand.  And at the moment none more so than Manny Fabregas.  

In fact, his signs are so finely crafted you see people stop just to admire them and take pictures.  Many of his originals are in gold leaf, an eye catching medium historically associated with fine craft.  But  Manny's signs take beautifully scripted gold leaf to yet another level: often they are the only ones still shining when the San Francisco fog rolls into our neighborhoods.
