In other Mission-traveling news, Mission Mission reports that some expat Missionistas (or possibly some Australians who went native) have started a Mission-themed burrito joint in Brisbane, Australia. With the earlier discovery of Mission burritos in Berlin, it’s now safe to say that the sun never sets on the Mission Burrito Empire.

What’s the strangest place you’ve ever had a burrito? I ate a burrito in Russia once. Don’t eat burritos in Russia.

Last, Mission Loc@l contributor Laurie Buenafe Krsmanovic sends word that there will be a day of service cleaning up the area around 24th Street in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 18.
