so, against my better judgment I wound up in a bar in San Francisco's gentrifying Mission District to watch Game 2 of the NBA finals and sure enuff, a young white woman by the name of Ashley sidles up next to me at the bar and starts in on how much she hates Lebron because he is so "aggressive" and "testerone-driven." then she starts in on how she is really a Warriors fan but she is glad that the team fired Mark Jackson because he made some homophobic comments and as a *** woman she was offended. "When Phil Jackson made his anti-immigrant slurs a few years ago, did that offend you?" I asked. "That's different," she said dismissively. "Yes, it was," I said, "it was different in the sense that Mark Jackson expressed his love for the *** basketball player Jason Collins but said he could not condone homosexuality because of his religious beliefs. Phil Jackson's statements were merely racist and hateful." As we talked--and drank--she grew more and more livid and defensive. She was a civil rights attorney, ...
Today May 30, 1908 Melvin Jerome Blank was born in San Francisco to Frederick and Eva (Katz) Blank. Mel had a four year older brother Henry Charles. By 1910 the Blank's were living at 3332 Twenty-First St. in the Mission District. In 1915 the Blank family moved to Portland when Melvin was six years old and lived at 225 1/2 Sherman St. Mel grew up in a diverse area of Southwest Portland. He spent his boyhood sitting in a grocery store listening to conversations of customers of certain nationalities. Those conversations would later become the genesis of what he would do, give his audience dialects in concentrated form. Mel attended Shattuck school, Commerce school & Lincoln High School. On Dec 14, 1917 Mel participated in the "Winter Swimming & Diving Meet" at Couch School tank. Eight year old Melvin Blank was part of the 60 foot dash event. By 1920 the Blank's had moved to 543 S.W. 5th Ave. On April 2, 1923 Melvin Blank was admitted into the "Keep Growing Wiser Order of Hoot Owls" along with nearl ...
Carnaval San Francisco's Mission District 2014 After attending Mardi Gras in New Orleans once and Carnaval in Bahia Brazil three times, you'd think I might be jaded about a 20-block parade through San Francisco's Mission District, especially when it comes to shooting film. After all, Bahia is documentary ready. Its carnaval is a five-day, city-wide orgy of scores of live music trucks and marching samba bands and a million Brazilians not to mention untold quantities of beer and the 92 degree heat. Still, San Francisco's Carnaval stands tall and continues to astound me. First of all, its fabulous celebration of San Francisco's critical Latino heritage—you know, the one before the *** invaded—and I love the Bolivians, especially since it must be tough marching in their many-layered dresses behind a Brazilian troupe. Secondly, San Francisco's Carnaval, held since the '80s on Memorial Day (since the regular late-February date of beginning of Lent is too cold here), is an opportunity for executives, f ...
For all you girls that thing your hipsters, think twice.. here's the definition... educa te yourself on what your trying to be that your not. Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although "hipsterism" is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinatio ...
Overheard at a Financial District salad bar: Guy 1: It's in Glen Park. Guy 2: What's that? Guy 1: It's an area, way out there. Very residential neighborhood. It's still in the city but it's very far south. Distance from 24th Street Bart station in the Mission District to Diamond and Bosworth, the main intersection in Glen Park: 2.2 miles. Distance from that intersection to the southern border of San Francisco: About 2.3 miles.

Where in San Francisco can manufacturers go? Try San Leandro. From today's SF Business Times - Where in San Francisco can manufacturers go? Renée Frojo - Reporter- San Francisco Business Times San Francisco’s manufacturing sector is expanding its footprint, but companies on a mission to make things locally are running out of room to grow. Manufacturers are mostly clustered in city areas zoned for industrial and urban mixed use. Those areas include the Mission District, Potrero Hill and the Bayview, though some manufacturers can still be found in the city’s traditional manufacturing hubs around SoMa and Mid-Market. But like the nonprofits and artists in those areas, they’ve also been displaced by growing tech companies. S maller makers, such as jewelers and garment manufacturers, have flourished in pockets of San Francisco. Thanks to recently passed legislation authored by Supervisor Malia Cohen, which amended the planning code to ease restrictions on certain manufacturing uses, they can now legall ...
About our hosting art teacher, Rachel Znerold: Growing up in the Colorado countryside, Rachel Znerold knew early on that she was different—she saw dazzling beauty in decomposing logs and scrawled wild designs on her sneakers. Now, as a painter, one-of-a-kind eco-fashion designer, performance artist and teacher, Rachel makes her life out of making art. With a degree in Fine Art and Advertising from The University of Colorado in Boulder, she became a resident artist at Rembrandt Yard Gallery, and taught painting, fashion design, and performance at schools throughout Boulder.

Opening of my 2000 book about the ways Silicon Valley was ravaging San Francisco and wealth can destroy culture: San Francisco, Capital of the Twenty-First Century Saturday night a new bar called Fly opens on Divisadero Street and immediately becomes a mecca for white kids. Sunday evening the St. John Coltrane African Orthodox Church a few blocks down the boulevard holds a benefit to help it relocate from its home of twenty-nine years. And this bar and this church aren't even in the San Francisco neighborhoods that are being most rapidly changed. What's happening on Divisadero Street in the Western Addition is just the spillover from the wild mutation of the Mission District, once a bastion of Latino culture and cheap housing, and of the formerly industrial South of Market district. They are becoming the global capital of the Internet economy. San Francisco has been for most of its 150-year existence both a refuge and an anomaly. Soon it will be neither. Gentrification is transforming the city by driving ...
“ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE SAFEWAY” (Alley Surfing Day 4). Across the street from the Safeway, I was sitting and waiting for the bus to take me over to the Mission District…a final day of wondering up and down the Mission’s Alleys and more fun exploring the area and doing a little Alley Surfing. I like the buses of San Francisco, especially since I am a great people watcher and the cross section of rider’s would give anyone pause to sense the human drama and I always end up playing that old kid’s game of “Who are they really…And, what are they really doing?” You remember playing that as a kid, don’t ya? See! What did I tell you? Hey, the guy across the street…a sleeping bum? Or a SanFran Police Nark on a stake out? Could be either or it could be both…Dude! This is the Mission District! Or the lady hovering behind him? What ya think? Really? Wow! I thought that was Flo? Flo from our tour group…remember her? Well, maybe…maybe she could be… Really? A SanFran Nark, too…but, I ...

Woodward's Gardens was a combination amusement park, museum, art gallery, zoo, and aquarium operating from 1866 to 1891 in the Mission District of San Francisco, California. The Gardens covered two city blocks, bounded by Mission, Valencia, 13th, and 15th Streets in San Francisco. The site where the entrance stood currently is a brick building at 1700 Mission Street, built after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, which features a California Historical Site plaque. The Woodward's Gardens Restaurant on the first floor is named after this historic place. The San Francisco Armory, completed in 1914 stands on the old property. Woodward's Gardens was owned and operated by Robert B. Woodward (1824-1879), who became wealthy during the Gold Rush of 1849 and through his ownership the "What Cheer House", a hotel and inn at 527-531 Sacramento Street at Leidesdorff Alley in San Francisco. Woodward opened the Gardens on the site of his four-acre estate after moving to Napa, California. Early in his career, photographer ...
I identify as a Doberman, however underneath the hood I often wear I’m a mutt. Let me clarify, I am multi-racial. My father is Hispanic and my mother for lack of a better description is American. Irish with some American Indian threw in there and I believe she may have mentioned Dutch at some point. To be honest race has never really been something that I see or notice. I grew up in a muti-cultural home and it wasn’t even confined to Hispanic and American I have cousins that are African American as well and for five years I was married to a Thai woman. I have traveled all over the world while in the US Army and always attempted to embrace the environments I was in. I still love bratwurst, Guiness on tap, and my favorite Afghani asabia el aroos. But culture goes beyond food, or at least it should. This past Saturday I had the opportunity to spend Dia de los Meurtos with a wonderful group of people in San Francisco’s Mission District. Half asleep on Friday morning I stumbled onto the early BAR ...
The part of Silicon Valley that can't happen online In Silicon Valley, it feels like everybody’s always “meeting.” They’re "meeting" investors for coffee, or having a “walking meeting.” Steve Jobs was famous for those. And everyday, there are talks, conferences and private parties, where techies go to meet. I went to one of those meetings recently. It was a dinner given by some of the partners at Google Ventures, which is the search giant's venture capital fund. The fund invests in start-ups. And investors are serious "meeters." The event was at Foreign Cinema, in San Francisco's hip Mission District. When I arrived, the hostess took me upstairs to a private room, where the cocktails were flowing. The event was star-studded, in a geeky sort of way. Kevin Rose from Digg was there. So was Rich Miner, the co-creator of Android. Both of them work for Google Ventures. Miner told me he'd been on the meeting merry go round since 5 a.m. “Today, I think I had about 10 meetings,” Miner said. ...
Richard "Cavo" Joe Martinez May 25,1960 - July 1,2013 Resident of Concord Cavo was born in San Francisco. He grew up in the City's Mission District and attended John O'Connell High School. For the past five years, Cavo worked as a bartender at the Marriott in Walnut Creek. He was so popular there he had his own signature drink, the "CavoLicious." Cavo had a lifelong passion for music and was a drummer for several bands, including Xecutive Sweet, Night Shift and The Robert Diaz Band. He played the drums, congas, bongos, timbales and many other percussion instruments.

San Francisco is an amazing city to include on your gap year. As well as being home to iconic attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, it is comprised of unique districts that each have something different to offer. Today, we'll be looking at the Mission District.
TOMORROW: Anti-Gentrification Block Party Mission District, 16th and Mission BART Plaza Sunday, May 5th, 1pm In the last several decades, thousands of people have been displaced from the Mission District due to evictions, high rents, rising cost of living, transportation costs, and a lack of access to employment and education. In the last several years, rent for many has almost doubled. This Cinco de Mayo, (May 5th), join with Mission residents to speak out and gather to build a culture of resistance against gentrification in San Francisco and beyond. Rally Support for In the Works Facing Eviction! Our friends at ITW (intheworkssf.wordpress.com) are currently facing eviction from their building, after a new landlord, Rick Holman, has purchased the property.

San Francisco police are reporting minor flare-ups of violence in the Mission District as disappointed San Francisco 49ers fans react to their team's loss to the Baltimore Ravens tonight. A few people have thrown bottles at police officers around 24th and Mission Streets and 16th and Mission Streets following the 49ers 34-31 loss, Officer Carlos Manfredi said this evening. Police were out in force this evening in potential hot spots such as the Mission District in an effort to prevent a repeat of the World Series violence. Manfredi said officers are working to respond quickly and keep things under control. "It's nowhere compared to the Giants," Manfredi said, referring to the violence and vandalism that broke out after the San Francisco Giants' won the World Series against the Detroit Tigers in October 2012. Elsewhere in the city, in neighborhoods such as the Haight Ashbury, fans reported a somber mood but no violence. Mayor Ed Lee congratulated the 49ers for their "spectacular performance" thi ...
A dozen people were arrested Sunday during the revelry in the Mission District after the San Francisco 49ers' NFC Championship victory, police said today. One person was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, one on an outstanding warrant and one for driving under the influence. Nine people were arrested for public intoxication, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said. Crowds spilled into the streets following the 49ers' 28-24 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, briefly taking over part of Mission Street near Silver Avenue, Shyy said. However, there were no reports of vandalism like that seen in October, when rowdy crowds damaged storefronts along several blocks in the Mission after the San Francisco Giants won the World Series, Shyy said. He said police are already planning for the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, when the 49ers will face the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans.
Wow, what a weekend! Thanks to Adam Bogle who let me in on the secret that Eddie Izzard is popping into small venues here on the west coast to finesse his coming tour comedy. Spent the weekend in San Francisco, saw Eddie at the Brava Theatre, downtown in the Mission District, hung out with fellow Eddie fans, laughed our *** off for at least and hour and a half straight. You're better than ever. Wish we'd had the chance to visit after the show. Thanks to Nancy Krebs who took us in, kept us warm and fed, made sure our visit downtown was safe, and just made the whole weekend roll smoothly. What a fun and amazing time. So happy I got to share this with Abigail, Blake, and Sierra. You rock! Thanks to Isaac, who kept the home fires burning and the pets happy while we were away. You're the best kiddo!
Residents affected by today's Mission District fire can check in for help at the Red Cross service center that will operate at the Mission Presbyterian Church, 3261 23rd St., from noon to 6 on Sunday (Dec. 30). At an evacuation center set up at the church earlier today, the Red Cross was able to help 39 adults and four children impacted by the fire, and placed 19 individuals from 10 families in local hotels. About half of the displaced residents speak Spanish, and translators were on hand to help with communications. The CCSF Animal Care & Control provided temporary shelter to several pets. Red Cross volunteers from San Francisco and Alameda counties responded to the scene to coordinate and provide a wide range of disaster services.

Dear St. John's friends, We have a vicar! He'll be familiar to many of you, because he's a long-time member of St. John's and one of our faithful unpaid clergy: the Rev. Richard Smith. We told out the news during yesterday's service, to thunderous applause. Here's a picture of Richard, taken last week out front of Citibank in downtown San Francisco, where members of St. John's gathered to stop the auction of the Rev. Gloria del Castillo's house. We are looking forward to a wonderful partnership with Richard, as we deepen our lives together, both inside and outside the red doors on Julian Street. Richard, his husband Rob Tan, and their son David are rooted in our Mission District community, and will help us spread our roots here as well. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with Richard, with other faith communities, and with the city of St. Francis. Richard's tenure begins on Sunday, January 20. I'd like to take this moment to offer my deepest thanks to all the people who so faithfully worke ...

Got my last saturday night in San Francisco planned! Check into the Elements Hotel in the Mission District (my own room, luxery!)cycle down to the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in Golden Gate Park and see watch Sea-sick Steve (for free!) at 6:00pm, then cycle over to Marlenas Famous Tranny Bar for the best drag show in town (for free!) at 10:00pm, then drunkenly cycle over to DNA Lounge for an after hours "mashup party". Get back to hotel and crash. Then, on sunday, check out, get the train to San Leandro for the "Sausage and Suds music and beer" festival, where I am to be pulling pints and litter picking! I only wish I had a cohort of hippies to share the experience with (although if I did, we'd never get anywhere because we'd stay in the hotel room and smoke weed all night!) :)

This is where the "Mexican Black Tar and Brown Powder Heroin" comes from that is for sale in the Tenderloin and thru ought the Mission District in San Francisco, and in South Central LA, and in the South Side of Chicago, and in NYC. Now, do you really think the Crips and the Bloods have it together to invade Afghanistan, set up the cultivation, harvest, and labs to convert the opium to heroin, and then use those special CIA Jets to fly the product to Mexico for import to the neighborhood near you? Yup! It's the Crips and Bloods! That's who our courts fill *** Cheney's private prisons with. So what educational track are your kids on? Cradle to Ivy League, Cradle to Military, or Cradle to Prison?

Richard Bean brings back Latin-rock Sapo La Rosa Bella Presents Latin Legends to Swiss Park August 19th!Benefit concert!Get your tickets now! THE EMERGENCE of the "New Chicano Groove" has sparked renewed interest in Latin rock bands whose appearance in the late 1960s and early '70s altered the face of popular music. Santana is rightly credited for kick-starting this mini-revolution. Hitching African-Latin polyrhythms to rock guitar, the band paved the way for a myriad of other Chicano-led ensembles, most notably Azteca, Malo and Sapo. These bands used rock-style guitar and percussion as well. The incorporation of R&B and jazz elements, however, made their sound unique. Richard Bean was instrumental in upping the funk quotient in the then novel sound. As a teenager in San Francisco's Mission District, Bean found himself immersed in music. "Salsa I heard a lot, on the streets," he says. "And R&B was on the radio." British rock, too, would leave a mark on the budding singer/songwriter. Bean formed the Dynami ...

I left the Bay Area today. Including the "Heal the Hood" events in San Francisco and Oakland, sponsored by Poor Magazine, I spoke at the Cesar Chavez branch of the Oakland Public Library; Koret Auditorium of the San Francisco Public Library; and 829 Valencia in the Mission District, doing writing workshops with 5th and 6th graders. I showed the film, "Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams: How the Arts are Transforming a Community," and sold copies of the book of the same name and the paperback version of my memoir "It Calls You Back." I also had a great time at San Quentin Prison.

A weird but wonderful night. Try getting into the Mission District in San Francisco at 6 pm on a Friday. Traffic impossible on Van Ness heading toward the district. Finally getting to Valencia and 22nd where The Marsh is located. Parking garage full up and there is nowhere to park. Finally find a disability blue parking space just big enough for my toy car. (I have a Disability Sticker). Now the question getting into the parking space. Cars honking because I am trying to back in. Yea, finally get into tight space with Eddy’s help. Next problem where to eat since “Life Goes Viral” is at 8:30 and it’s only 6;45. Our favorite restaurant full up (of course it’s Saturday night). Go into a bar that looks like the set of “Time of Your Life”. “You serve here” we ask. Big burly bartender says “No”. You can bring food it. “OK, we will have a vodka on the rocks”.
