Other publications portray the Mission largely as a giant mural and taco delivery mechanism.
Mission Local admits to loving murals. And we used to eat tacos every day for lunch (one carne asada, one al pastor: El Metate) before we figured out that it actually was possible to have too much of a good thing.
But we think that there are thousands of other stories in this neighborhood of ours, big and small. We’ve covered deported pastry chefs, the lives of the women who live in the Mission’s SROs, the cabal of realtors who with the stroke of a pen, moved several Mission residents into Noe Valley.
Supporting us is easy….
You can advertise with us. We get more than 75,000 unique views a month and 200,000 to 250,000 page views, most of them people who live in and love this neighborhood. In other words: your ideal customers.
You can buy one of our many fine products (our t-shirt, our zine, our iPhone app). All are excellent stocking-stuffers, two are tangible goods, three will help you orient yourself around the neighborhood, and one will keep you from being naked.)
Or you can just donate. Think of all the things in life that you don’t like giving money to, like parking tickets. And you actually like us.
Happy holidays (or not-holidays, depending on which religion or atheism or agnosticism you subscribe to).
