State Garage

State Garage One Day, originally uploaded by deanv41.

The valet smoking a cigarette at State Garage on Leavenworth on Nob Hill is the same one I once drew a sketch of from my window in North Beach.
Valets around town are a bit of an Italian brotherhood. They are eyes on the street, often seen driving other people's incredibly luxe cars as if they owned them. It either pays really well or is a way for immigrants to slip under the wire, because they stick to it and keep a certain style and swagger that I appreciate.
