Mission Local reporter Vanessa Carr today passed word of another mass Muni proof of payment fare ticketing at 16th and Mission, according to her about a dozen officers were enforcing a “zero tolerance policy,” checking all buses for transfers and writing citations.
Meanwhile, Vic Wong of Mission Mission posts about Doctor Popular and his fantastic yo-yo tricks, performed in Clarion Alley in front of what I call the Atari mural. What Vic didn’t mention is that the modern renaissance man also holds the power of 3-D animated GIFs. A modern, Da Vinci, perhaps? Amazing, but also extremely dizzying after about 15 seconds.
phone books Board of Supervisors committee assignments are here! District 9 Supervisor David Campos lands a spot as a “temporary member” of the Budget and Finance Committee, and keeps his spot on the Rules Committee.
Also on SF Weekly, SFoodie reports Paula Tejada of Chile Lindo is once again going from the street back to the storefront. Her short-lived venture next to Esperpento was always a pleasure to visit, especially on Chilean Independence Day.
But I digress. Bay Area Bites peels back the foil and dives headlong into the Mission Burrito (capitalization intentional), in a post that I didn’t actually read yet, but has an awesome picture of a steak and shrimp burrito from Taqueria Guadalajara. I’ll read it later, I promise.
In “real news,” the San Francisco General Hospital rebuild project just released its latest issue of “Straight Up” (PDF) – a community letter about the project. Murals with Precita Eyes, efforts at improved parking and traffic, it’s in there.
Last, David Knowles plugs his own band The Marshmallows in the latest Paradigms Lost Playlist section on True/Slant, which I bring up because he mentions he’ll be playing at the Abobe bookstore on Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. That, and the “Etch-a-Sketch” video is pretty cool.
