Forget for a moment that the word “foodie” sounds like baby talk. And is meaningless and empty, like the New York Times’ cranky eater Mark Bittman says.
Let’s enjoy “Mission Foodiez,” a video love letter to the pleasures of sunbathing, caffeinating and ice creaming in the Mission.
Crafted and posted on YouTube recently by SF musician/teacher/brewmaster Edgar Camago (@edgarcamago), MF takes a tonal tour of our hood, mixing snippets of words, gasps, groans, jangling forks and Muni’s white noise to make a cheery song.
Laughing Squid drew our attention to “Mission Foodiez” – we love any attempt to take our communal temperature. And we wonder…Can you name all the Mission District icons in Camago’s video? Who is that naked dude at Dolores Park?
