We’d like to congratulate the Mission on winning “Best Neighborhood to Call Home” in SF Weekly‘s Best of San Francisco Readers’ Poll.
On topic now…, Congrats!
I’d also like to congratulate Chupa at Bender’s for winning best bartender. Damn straight. Best bar too.
Congrats to you too, sir.
You’re not even going to mention that Mission Mission got “Best Neighborhood Blog”?
I mean, I know these things are silly, but still.
here’s to living in the best neighborhood, in the best city. yay. yum.
Hooray Mission – and congrats on the Best Neighborhood Blog win, even if you’re not going to mention it.
Great, now get the hell out and leave me alone! Interlopers: damn mormom crickets have overrun the place. Can’t even get a drink without being swarmed by the pests.
Yeah, seriously – CONGRATULATIONS!!!
MissionMission winning is surely the biggest blog news of the year, if not the century (so far).
The two wins – the neighborhood and its blog – are linked, I would say more than statistically.
I believe this should entitle Allan to designate himself Official SpokesBlogPerson of The Mission, and to determine all neighborhood policy, including retail on Valencia St. and booze in the park. Move over, Stephen Elliot.
And NeoDisplacer, what ever happened to bag-o’-forty on the sidewalk?!
I never touch the Weekly, so I wouldn’t know, but congrats to Allan, his blog deserves it.
However, generally these ‘reader’s choice’ awards are a good indicator of when something jumps the shark and becomes untouchable, especially when it involves the Weekly readers. As soon as the Zeitgeist won ‘best hetero pick up bar’ in the Weekly, it became overrun with Marina types who rendered it into the sick monstrosity we see today with lines snaking out the door.
So congratulations to the Weekly Readers’ bestest Neighborhood to Live in. Yay! The Mission is now safe for overpaid yuppies with no sense of place or humility. Cleaner, brighter, and whiter indeed.
Mission Mission is our daily salute to San Francisco's most vibrant neighborhood. We love it here, and we bet you do too.
