Following up on Amanda’s reference to Kink yesterday, Kink’s certainly been keeping the heat up in their Armory headquarters, with a launch of their “Upper Floor” “slave society” website yesterday. Steve Jones was there for the Guardian, and has the rundown on SexSF. NSFW, if you really had to ask.
If you’ve been too busy browsing the internets to look through old-fashioned print, you might be missing out on McSweeney’s Panorama. Not to worry though, some of our staff have gone through it for you, picking out some of the highlights.
At city hall, while Supervisor David Campos sent a letter today asking the city attorney to weigh in on the mayor’s refusal to implement the sanctuary city ordinance amendment passed last month, activists say that the mayor and federal attorneys’ threats are just a bunch of hot air.
Paciencia, por favor – SFoodie reports that Cafe Gratitude Mexican but no less vegan spinoff Gracias Madre’s opening, scheduled for next Monday, will instead be pushed back to December 26th. We are waiting.
And on All Shook Down today, Mark Matos sings about the Mission – the “High Priest of the Mission” to be exact. Listen to the track here. It’s upbeat, poppy and conjures up visions of Valencia Street on warmer, sunnier days.
If you like what you hear, he’ll be playing El Valenciano on January 27.
And by the way, don’t forget about the Mission Holiday Block Party tonight, from 5-10pm. Find a map of participating stores here.
We leave you with this photograph, taken by local Flickr photographer Barackdas, of the fascinating web of cables above the Muni depot at 17th and Bryant streets.
