As if the Mission weren’t arty enough, our friends over at Mission Loc@l have announced that they are launching a film festival and are putting out a call for submissions.
BART was front and center with its cell phone controversy and downtown protest… prostitution continues to be a problem, especially on Capp Street… merchants on Mission Street fear they are being targeted with “drive-by lawsuits”… and Charanga owner Gabriela Salas takes us to her other favorite restaurant in the Mission.
The Mission may be one of the most diverse, and definitely the warmest, neighborhoods in SF. It’s rich with immigrant communities and artists’ communities alike and it’s usually in the center of any hotbed controversy. The site, Mission Local, does a fabulous job in covering the ins and outs of this dynamic district. As part of Street’s new weekly Hood series, we’ll be posting the top stories from Mission Local every week.
