Who really cares what’s going on today – THE SAINTS ARE IN THE SUPER BOWL! You’ll be able to catch the big game at Shotwell’s (where they’ll also have fried chicken sandwiches!), Clooney’s and probably just about any other bar with a television in the city (I hope.)
Like most Super Bowls though (remember Janet?) this one’s not without its accompanying controversy, in the form of an anti-abortion ad starring Tim Tebow. The ad has sparked a flurry of counter-ads though, none of which will probably gain the large viewership of being aired on the emeffing Super Bowl. All Shook Down has the rundown.
If M.C. Escher lived in SF, he’d surely live in the Mission.
Over at CALIBER, photographer Stuart Dixon posts this Escher-esque cityscape from Clarion Alley. I wonder what the inspiration for this mural was?
Mission Mission has word of a stolen bike. And to commenters – what’s wrong with posting about a stolen bike? If it was yours, you’d be glad people were spreading the word, right?
Over at Uptown Almanac, Kevin waxes the 4am kind of lyrical over the Make Out Room, which makes up half of the binary bar-star of 22nd Street between Mission and Valencia. Piñatas on one hand, trashy prom decorations on the other.
And in a throwback, I feel we have to re-ask the question – Which Mission Bar would Han Solo most likely shoot someone in? I think this one deserves a poll. I would guess Clooney’s or Dovre.
