Sheep are hipsters

January 23rd, 2011

It occurred to me the other day that sheep are hipsters.

Look, I’m not saying that hipsters are sheep, that would be redundant. I’m saying that sheep — those cuddly wool and cheese producing mammals — are hipsters themselves.

Here’s a handy table explaining the similarities.

Sheep Hipsters
Sheep More hipster action
Sheep wear wool sweaters naturally Hipsters wear wool sweaters ironically
Sheep follow each other Hipsters follow each other
Sheep have sheep dogs Hipsters have trendy dogs
Sheep eat a vegan, gluten-free diet Hipsters eat a vegan, gluten-free diet

Maybe these are all coincidences, you say. Maybe there’s nothing to this.

Well then here’s one last piece of evidence, courtesy of MissionMission contributor Ariel Dovas:

The People In Dolores Park Are Sheep

Yes, sheep hang out in Dolores Park! I rest my case.

New restaurant for 18th and Dolores

January 9th, 2011

Last night I happened to notice this Planning Dept. application for a building permit on the former Studio 3579 space.

Planning permit, 18th and Dolores

If you recall, Studio 3579 was a recently shuttered store on the corner of 18th and Dolores, across from Dolores Park Cafe.

The planning permit indicates that they’re building out a “full service” restaurant. Considering the diminutive size of the place, one has to wonder if they’re going to be cooking with an Easy-Bake Oven.

Oh and before you ask, Ashton Richards appears to be a local architect, not a restauranteur.

UPDATE: KevMo points out that this will be a sushi joint. But isn’t the market for sushi in the Mission Dolores area already way past saturation point? Time will tell.

Pedal power * 7

June 7th, 2010

A bicycle built for… seven? Spotted on 18th and Dolores.

Crazy bike

A bit of Googling reveals there’s at least one place in the city where you can rent one. According to their website, “it’s not just a bike: it’s a PARTY ON WHEELS!”

So, who’s down for a party on wheels?
