It’s 7 a.m. — OK, 7:06 a.m., 46° and headed to 62°. Details are here.

We’re so spoiled here. Great evening at the Galería de la Raza with terrific stories — props to all, especially Vero Majano, a filmmaker whose storytelling you should not miss. Also, catch the Galería’s current show of work featuring Ana Teresa Fernandez and others.

Then the best-ever dinner at Mission Local Eatery. Who comes up with these menus? Charred broccoli with faro, parmesan and grated lemon. Yum. Mark had to-die-for lamb meatballs with heirloom beans.

If you missed Sissy Bounce, the Bay Citizen has a story here.

And while SOMARTs is a bit out of the Mission, the maestros there — Rene and Rio Yañez – are all Mission, and this weekend is their open studios weekend.

Enjoy! lc

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
