    The Bold Italic, 22 July 2011:

    Most consider our Tenderloin neighborhood to be a vast black hole of no-go in downtown San Francisco.

    Truth be told, there are certainly a couple of blocks full of downright nasty that neither you nor I should make a habit of frequenting. But beyond those unfortunate social potholes, the Tenderloin is a rich neighborhood with a great wealth of small areas each with their own character.

    Since The Bold Italic popularized the term “microhood,” it's only fitting to break down the Tenderloin by the sum of its parts. So, presented here is the “Tenderloin Microhoods Map.” While some of it is just for fun, a whole lot of it is most definitely true. Read up and come on down and grab a drink in The Gimlet! There’s sure to be some tasty dining in Delicious Fields afterward.
