We know the news of the Haiti earthquake is horrific to everyone but it maybe hits even closer to home for those who live in earthquake-land. Earthquakes are especially fresh in our mind because the Haiti quake came only days after the 6.5 earthquake in Eureka. In any case, we’re happy to see people are donating as much as they can.
Haitian community members gathered in the Mission today. The San Francisco Business Journal reports that within 36 hours of the earthquake in Haiti, people sent $7 million via text messages. Local restaurants are organizing events to raise funds and Gavin Newsom also announced today that there will soon be drop-off sites around the city to donate.
The storm may make you want to stay in this weekend (did you see the neighborhood’s newest digs by the way? Insidesfre.com got the inside scoop). If that leads to wondering what movies your neighbors are getting on Netflix, you’re in luck. With its nifty interactive map of the most and least rented movies, the New York Times can now tell you. My question is, are you really watching “Rachel Getting Married?”
If you decide to brave the rain, head to the Make-Out Room with your BFF. People on stage will be reading strangers’ most embarassing high school tales for the Get Mortified show. It could be as good, or bad, as flipping through an old yearbook. Have a great summer! time!
And here’s something to look forward to: Our call to Rosamunde Sausage Grill confirmed that they will finally open their Mission restaurant on Monday. Get ready for some tasty merguez hot dogs (my favorite). Unlike the Lower Haight location, you’ll be able to sit at a table and have beers on site!
