Today’s big news is, obviously, the California Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8. While Mission Loc@l reporter Shalwah Evans took a localized look at the response among gay men and women in the Mission District, you can catch an explanation of the ruling, what it means and what to do now on SFist, as well as lots of breaking coverage of the announcement and ensuing rallies on SFist and the SF Appeal.

In other, non prop 8-related news, the creme brulee and magic curry cart brothers have hit the big time, in the SF Chronicle. Unfortunately creme brulee seems (to most…) to be going on a short hiatus, perhaps taking a break before the scene gets too hot and brings the authorities cracking down? In the meantime there are plenty of new options to choose from, including Left Coast Smoke, which roams between various bars serving up barbeque pork sandwiches.

Also outside of the Mission District, SPUR held a special blogger-preview of its new 4-floor office space at 654 Mission Street. Amongst other nifty oferrings, SPUR’s new digs include railings and cabinets of crushed sunflower seeds, countertops of recycled newspaper and a zen-like garden balcony overlooking Mission Street. The downstairs gallery and 4th floor library will be open to the public.
