It’s a shame too — I thought he was really good in that Katy Perry sex tape.
Pushbike, the premiere cycling apparel and accessories shop in the Mission, which since its inception has been housed inside the Mission Skateboards storefront on 24th Street, is finally getting its own spot. And it looks rad — a nice quiet corner not not at all far off the beaten path.
They leave their 24th Street location this Friday, and the new location doesn’t open until probably most of the way through October, so if there’s anything you need (from a Mondrian saddle to a Tecate cycling cap, or a badass Freight Baggage messenger), snap it up quick.
(Do check out Unwoman’s brand new album The City, released just last week.)
p.s. Also take a look at Doc Pop’s epic Pac-Man watercolor series, Ghosts in the Machines:
The first bite had a strange flavor that I couldn’t really nail down. It wasn’t the meat – maybe it was the cheese. The chopped up patty was ridiculously dry and completely void of any flavor. The bacon was the most flavorful aspect of the burger and pretty much everything else was masked by excessive amounts of mustard. Perpetual bun slippage was brought on by the avocado and made the burger difficult to eat without making a total mess. I would have been better off just getting a bacon sandwich.
Now, having never eaten there myself, I can’t vouch for the quality of the Whiz, but many in the comments section came to the classic stand’s defense, suggesting that the author should have tried the more standard junior burger, patty melt, or veggie burger (apparently the best in town?). He also got taken to task for ordering the wrong kind of french fries, thus missing out on their popular waffle variety.
Our pal Becca has spent the last couple years traveling around Central American and India developing innovative new educational curricula that center around storytelling. Give the kids the tools they need to tell a story in an innovative way, and suddenly they’re teaching you.
So now Becca has a pitch up on Spot.us, and it’s about halfway funded. She’s brought this new program to the States, beginning at the Mission elementary school where she worked before she headed abroad. (Here‘s the story of Becca’s return to her old classroom.) This time, she’s asking students to focus their storytelling efforts on their experiences with migration:
The collective voyages of these students compose a narrative of the way the Bay Area’s unique culture has emerged, and how it continues to evolve. I want students to step up and tell their stories in a way that an audience will understand across boundaries of language, class, and nationality. I’ll bring a good supply of pencils, cameras, colors, papers, scissors, books, songs, and ribbons; the goal is to figure out a universal language along the way.
She’ll document her findings, and we’ll all learn a thing or two.

Have you ever been to Mariachi’s on Valencia for fast, fresh, and healthy Mexican food? Well, if not, you’d better hurry, because according to Grub Street, both it and its ten (10) different kinds of delicious vegetarian burritos will soon be gone and replaced by a Grandeho’s Kamekyo sushi bar.
Where will all of Mission mariachis go for dinner? La Rondalla can’t open soon enough!
