Alyssa's Take

""Go to City Lights Bookstore in North Beach. It's 4 stories and it's so cool. City Lights is where all the beatnik poets like Jack Kerouac and Ginsberg and all those guys hung out and did a lot of venting and wrote a lot of things and it has really amazing books and really smart people who work there to help you find books."
