A surprise in the Tenderloin
What a surprise to find such a gorgeous building when I took Carmen the dog to St. Boniface in the Tenderloin for the St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals. You'd never notice the place from the street, perhaps because you're too busy trying to avoid the perils of the Tenderloin, but once inside you're greeted by some beautiful old stained glass and wonderfully harmonious decorations everywhere you look. As a bonus, it's got that whole Franciscan vibe, which is pretty cool in itself—especially for dogs.
