As if Humphry Slocombe and its pistachio-bacon ice cream didn’t already send us on an undeserved trip to heaven and back, Burrito Justice breaks the news that the gourmet parlor will be whipping up microbrew flavors for the March 21 Mission Street Food.

In a self-reflective post on denim store Self Edge, Allan Hough of Mission Mission discovers why we should all hold judgement when a strange new storefront moves to our hood. (By the way, Self Edge debuted on Mission Local in December when biz correspondent Ayako Mie learned it was the anomolous Valencia store thriving despite the economic downturn.)

And, for some trippy weekend fun, Curbed SF leads us to world continents as the Chinese Zodiac.

I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
