I knew something was up when I saw the cameraman filming around 23rd and Mission Street. Turns out I was right, thanks to some astute Twitterers, @aHUGEproduction and @theyumdiary, he was at both Pirate Cat radio (drinking a maple bacon latte!) and That’s It the Center of the Mile. (Thanks MM!)
Through Thursday, the Roxie will be hosting a 9:00pm nightly showing of Crips and Bloods: Made in America, a documentary by Stacey Peralta about the two notorious gangs of South Central Los Angeles. Quote from the trailer: “Make no doubt about it, this is civil war right here.”
Tomorrow, the 23rd, the Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee will meet on the city bike plan, and a schedule for adoption, first on the agenda. Concerned? I would attend, or at least see if the committee or other board members have anything to say about it on Twitter.
On Tuesday, swing down to Milk at 1840 Haight Street (okay this is outside of the Mission but I’m getting to the point) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of El Papalote. 10 years of serving great salsa and fresh burritos made from scratch is indeed something to celebrate.
On Friday, get your weekend started by going to the opening of Spirit Rappings at the Hamburger Eyes Photo Epicenter. The opening runs from 6pm-9pm on Friday at the gallery on 26 Lilac Street. Works in painting, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, and printmaking will all be featured.
And in the latest God Save the Chronicle news, local billionaire Warren Hellman is supposedly putting together a plan to turn the Chron into a nonprofit newspaper. Well, if you can fund a yearly 100,000-strong FREE bluegrass festival, you can do just about anything.
