Last night was cold and wet, and it looks like unfortunately for the numerous shows, sales and block parties scheduled for this weekend, things are expected to stay that way.

A hot mug of Four Barrel coffee and a nice grilled reindeer steak might help keep you warm, fortunately both are now available at Bi-Rite. Mmm…venison. (Hat tip to Kat Malnowska at Mission Mission.)

The Quotidian has posted a great short doc on Mission Street Food’s rise to local culinary and charitable fame. The taco truck gone once-a-week-storefront-restaurant gone burger deli raised more than $17,000 for local charities last month, according to their website. Watch the video, learn the history of MSF, and you might relive some of your favorite meals.

And check out this short history of the intersection of Mission and Cesar Chavez streets, and yet another Walgreens, (the third in between 23rd and 30th streets) via Burrito Justice. Be sure to read the comments for additional history.

On this weekend of sales and holiday shopping, Alternative Design Studio is holding a special charity sale for Wonder Dog Rescue, a dog rescue organization which needs help or faces closure. And this in a time when we’re being overrun with homeless Chihuahuas.
