“Visitors have a very positive impact on our businesses. They know they are less likely to be ‘gouged’ when they come out to the outlying neighborhoods. They also tend to visit the unique shops offering items that they cannot find back home or online and then want to ship it home.” —Maryo Mogannam, Head of West Portal Merchants Association and owner Postal Chase

“We are very grateful to be recommended by Airbnb hosts. SnoCrave Tea House SF is a great place to hang out with friends and family while enjoying music and playing board games.” —Mack Ao and Vincent Ma, co-founders and partners of Sno-Crave Tea House
