Colorful artwork on Valencia

Colorful

Colorful Colorful

Where Bombay Bazaar once stood on Valencia and 16th is now a big sheet of plywood with some psychedelic colorful posters. No word yet on what drugs go best with viewing these posters. If you happen to know that or anything about these, drop me a line.

Dumpster parklet explained

October 18th, 2011

Dumpster parklet

Dumpster parklet

You know that dumpster with trees growing out of it by the Chronicle building on 5th St? Turns out it’s actually supposed to be a mobile parklet. Seems like a dumpster filled with a garden is kind of a lazy man’s parklet. But then look at the sponsors: our local garbage hauling provider, Recology, is behind this. It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?

Tequila for Día de los Muertos

October 18th, 2011

Tequila for Día de los Muertos

Sure, it’s just tequila in a decorative bottle. But how cool looking is that bottle? Almost makes me want to drop that kind of change on it and deal with the ensuing vomit after drinking too much tequila. Almost.

Wo Hing signage unveiled

October 14th, 2011

Wo Hing

Plywood at Wo Hing on Valencia and 17th came down this week, unveiling the new sign. Contrary to what the signage indicates, this is a restaurant, not a “general store.” Which is fortunate, since there’s so few restaurants in the Mission and so many general stores.

Cement warning

October 9th, 2011

Cement warning

Soon as I saw the “warning” in the cement, I immediately thought of Fight Club:

Tyler Durden: Did you know that if you mix equal parts of gasoline and frozen orange juice concentrate you can make napalm?
Narrator: No, I did not know that. Is that true?
Tyler Durden: That’s right. One could make all kinds of explosives using simple household items.

Spotted on the roof of the Art Institute on Chestnut St.

Curbside car sharing comes to the Mission

October 4th, 2011

City CarShare on Valencia and 17th City CarShare on Valencia and 17th

Adding to the city’s complex and draconian public curbside parking restrictions is a set of car-sharing-only spots. One of these new types of parking spots is located here in the Mission, outside El Toro on Valencia and 17th.

From now on this spot is reserved at all times for a specific City CarShare car, which is to be picked up and returned from that spot, or “pod” in car sharing lingo.

No word yet on how the city will enforce this, or what members renting the car are supposed to do if another car takes that space. Perhaps there’s a can of gasoline and a blowtorch in the back seat of the Prius to “take care” of these problems. Or maybe there’s the number for a towing company in the glove box. Either way.

Also of note: City CarShare has a new logo? The street sign is sporting a new look for the non-profit, which celebrates their 10th birthday on the 19th of this month. I’m thinking they jumped the gun and unveiled an updated logo a couple weeks early.
