Mission Mission

25 07 2008

If you couldn’t tell by now, I really like San Francisco but I love the Mission.  Earlier this week I stumbled across a great blog called Mission Mission. I want to steal all their stuff. Instead, I’ll just put a bug in your ear to head on over there and see what they got going on.

Here are a few of their recent posts that make me tingly all over:

New Tractor-Seat Stools at Mission Pie

Fruit on Your Fruit Trees Going to Waste? – About some Mission neighborhood people who give away their excess harvest to folks who can really use it at Treat Commons Community Garden (at 23rd and Treat) every Sunday from 1-3pm. They take donations! Tired of tripping on those apricot stones? Now you can do something useful with your fruit before it rots on the ground. Free Farm Stand.

Haiku Reviews of Mission District Taquerias  – Refers to another blog (http://offthemeathook.com/) that does bi-weekly haiku restaurant reviews.  This week she did Mission taquerias. (She’s not as thrilled with Pancho Villa as I am). Here are a couple of the reviews of the reviews:

3409 24th St. (@ Valencia)

clean, well-lit, quite fine.
burritos yes, tacos no.
sometimes a bit bland.

   Yep, Papalote in a nutshell.

2288 Mission St. (btw 18th & 19th Sts.)
3211 Mission St. (@29th St.)
1003 Market St. (@ 6th St.)

ugh. why? well, it’s bad,
it’s dirty, and it’s not nice.
I don’t get it. blech.

   Wait, what!? Actually, it’s good, it’s no dirtier than Farolito, and it’s nice. I totally get it. Yum!

thanks for posting my haikus, you have a great blog.

the funny thing about sf’s burritos is that everyone has different experiences- if you ask 5 people what’s the best and the worst you’ll get 5 completely different answers! 🙂
