Community festival 

Come meet your neighbors and enjoy some art on Sunday at 1435 San Bruno Ave. near 25th Street. Organizers say one of the goals for the event is to “connect with real humans doing real things.” We could all use some of that. 

More than 25 vendors, artists, musicians, and various groups will be out from noon to 5 p.m., and anyone is welcome to sell their wares or perform, just contact @BuildingCommunityCollective to sign up. 

Young writers of color

Submissions will run March 1 through April 8 for the Young Writers of Color Festival, a workshop and mentorship opportunity summer for aspiring school-aged BIPOC writers.

Goodbye, 3G 

It’s never been easy to be on time when taking Muni, and things might be a bit more difficult for a while. Make a habit of checking your Muni arrival times before you head to the bus stop; AT&T shut down its 3G network, impacting more than 650 displays in our city’s transit prediction system. They still have live updates for routes on their website and, eventually, Muni plans to upgrade those little screens to a new system.  

Mardi Gras in the Mission

Carnaval SF is hosting a Mardi Gras parklet crawl this coming Fat Tuesday! The March 1 crawl will hit 15 local businesses, and 15 dance groups will be performing. For details where the party will be at any given time, click here; festivities kick off at 5 p.m. 

To see the full list of parklets the party will visit, visit this Yelp list, which includes book stores, galleries, bars and bakeries through the heart of the Mission.

Origins,’ an art show

  1. Pardon my French, but why the FUCK is muni still operating on 3G??? We are the most technologically advanced city in the country and it’s embarassing how half-assed our municipal services are. As a carless San Franciscan I need two hands to count the number of times in the last month alone that the bus has come too early, never showed up or drives straight past the stop, or required a 30+ minute wait. Lack of decent pubtrans kills city life.
