Dinner and a walk around the hardware store? What's not to like.

I love family-owned hardware stores because they provide good service and are not huge, impersonal, and impossible to find floor help like Home Depot et al. We use the MV True Value HW store at Miramonte and El Camino, and they are small, but their stock of useful items is simply amazing. 90% of the time I go there, they have what I need, no matter how small or fiddly. I hope Nob Hill is the same way.

Please don't forget about Hassett Ace Hardware on Alma. They have worked SO hard to survive the lockdown(s).
