Props to Ariel Dovas for catching this view of (S)pork. I’ve seen it before, but never quite snapped the money shot he grabbed here.

From the Bay Bridged, My First Earthquake are donating all of the profits from sales of their album during the month of January to Hatian earthquake relief efforts (though they don’t specify who.) Also on Mission Mission – but without music.

Also, Southern Exposure just released its list of 2009 Alternative Exposure grantees, and congratulations go to Adobe Books, whose Backroom Gallery is on the list. By the way, check out Gina Contreras’s exhibit opening this Friday at the gallery, her work is great.

Premium Japanese beef, tea, rice, sake and…whiskey? Apparently Japanese Scotch is the next hot thing, according to the Wall Street Journal. If you feel like trying some yourself, you can give them a ($13-16) single-malt shot at Nihon Whisky Lounge near 14th and Folsom – a place I never knew actually existed but look at all those bottles on the shelves – its a beautiful sight.

In a little bit of a throwback, VendrTV finally released a video apparently filmed last year on the Mission’s now-gone-citywide street food vendors. (via SFoodie)

Last, today’s post on is with none other than Steve Rotman, San Francisco Street Art Documentarian Extraodinaire.
