Daylight savings is upon us! That means mornings that come too early, but it also means slanting afternoon light that lasts long into the evening. Celebrate Monday night with a drink at Medjool’s rooftop bar. Depending on how the planning department proceeds with that bar, technically illegal but operating since 2004, you may not have many chances to savor the view from up there.
If you haven’t seen Slumdog Millionaire yet, you can catch it at the Roxie this week at 6:45 and 9:10. It’s a flick worth seeing, and we hope it inspires someone in the Mission to stage a Bollywood dance video in the bowels of the 16th Street Bart station, with interludes shot at Dolores Park, at sunset.
While you’re there, pick up tix for Friday’s documentary about Bela Fleck. We haven’t seen the movie, we admit, but Bela Fleck is a hell of a banjo picker. The film follows Fleck to Africa; we’d follow him pretty much anywhere.
Wednesday night, head to the Women’s Building at 18th between Valencia and Guerrero to tell the planning department what you want out of Mission Street’s “streetscape.” All the info you need about the planning process, including info on the first two community meetings, is here. 6:30-8:30 pm.
