Like many women out there, it took founder Lauren McCabe Herpich a while to realize that she was a Why Not Girl! But what is a Why Not Girl!? A Why Not Girl! is a woman who sees every day as a chance to try something new, be herself, have fun and feel accomplished. You only live once, right?
Inspired by her mom, sisters, friends, husband and even television characters what seemed to always be saying Why Not! as they tried new things, Lauren launched Why Not Girl! in 2012 as a website that serves to empower women to try something new. It’s a place for all women to share not only how we say Why Not! in dealing with life’s major milestones, but also the everyday adventures we take part in without blinking an eye.
Now with her recent move to the Bay Area, she is expanding the Why Not Girl! mission by offering workshops, classes and activities in partnership with local businesses. Currently ranging in price from $20 to $50, Why Not Girl! has a current list of events being offered in the city and the East Bay such as:
D-I-Y Make Your Own Lamp Class
Bedroom Confidence Workshop
Intro to Improvisation Class
Martial Arts Sessions
More events are being added all of the time. So for a full list of events and to purchase tickets, go to www.whynotgirl.com
Alexandra does hiking tours, which is a quirky thing to do in San Francisco, mainly because most people come here for completely different reasons, most of which have nothing to do with enjoying our rich and wonderful city. If you want to have some fun like a local, read on …
Hi, I’m Alexandra Kenin, and I’d love to take you on one of the urban hiking tours that I run with Urban Hiker SF.
Inspired by Adah Bakalinsky’s Stairway Walks in San Francisco, I offer semi-private and private tours showing you the city’s hidden stairways, hills, parks, and hiking trails. Whether you’ve been in San Francisco for 10 hours or 10 years, I can guarantee that you’ll see something new. While we’re on our tour, you’ll also learn local area history that shaped the City by the Bay.
Right now I have three standard routes, and I’m also happy to make a custom route for you. The hikes I offer are 5 miles long and take between 2 ½ and 3 hours to complete. My tours are appropriate for most hikers, but you should be able to walk for 5 miles and be comfortable climbing stairs. To see what an example tour looks like you can view a YouTube video of my Walk on the Wild Side hike or you can view the photo galleries I’ve included on my site?
I love showing off the beauty of my city to tourists and locals alike, so I hope to hike with you soon.
To book a hike, visit my website.
Let’s get together and have some heathy fun!
How about a road trip down the coast to Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Carmel and then down the coast to Big Sur?
Most people come to visit San Francisco and m a y b e take a short trip to Napa, but going south has so much to offer and it’s often overlooked. The Monterey Peninsula is a mere 2 hours down some of the most beautiful coastline in the world – Highway 1.
I grew up in Pacific Grove, which is part of the Monterey Peninsula. I’ve driven down Highway 1 so many times and it never gets old. The coastline from San Francisco all the way down to San Luis Obispo is just the best. I’ve traveled a fair share and honestly, this drive is still one of my very favorites. You won’t be sorry, I promise.
