The Attic, gutted

Our pal Andy, who was probably the best customer the Attic ever had, snapped this heartbreaking photo and talked to one of the folks involved who told him that a new bar will be replacing the demolished dive.  As our other pal Inna notes:

I love how the Chinese lanterns are still there!

Damn, remember when the only thing threatening the Attic used to be that music-hating NIMBY neighbor?

Since Ed Lee keeps blowing it as mayor of SF, shouldn’t we just elect Frida to be people mayor of the city instead of just dog mayor?

Seems like a valid question…

Adobe and Smithsfits with more rad things to do for Halloween!

First up tonight, Adobe Books!  Or rather, UNDER THE SEA MACABRE…

Tourists are disappearing from fisherman’s wharf. And no, they’re not in north beach. As more and more tourists vanish from the fog-soaked piers, the seals of the wharf decide to take matters into their own hands. Maybe its the changing of the season; perhaps new zoning laws; perhaps renegade google buses are to blame; any way you look at it, something smells a little… fishy. It is up to the viewer to investigate the recent disappearances. Come get scared at the Adobe Haunted House on All Hallows’ Eve! Please be afraid. Our tourists need you.

Check it all out here.

And on Saturday when you’re finally done nursing your hangover and have gotten over your tummy ache from eating too many bite-size snickers, the 4th incarnation of evilest costume contest in Mission awaits at the Knockout…

All SMITHS, all MISFITS, all night long with a costume contest around midnight. 1st place gets $100 bones. Prizes for 2nd and 3rd as well. Nuff said…

Indeed!  Invite your friends here.

But so far the MUNIS are safe

Phew!

This intersection wasn’t on fire 20 minutes ago

But it’s on fire now.

Behold, the new Whole Foods…Tit Mobile?

Not sure if this is real or fake (or some daft new food truck), but hey, San Francisco everybody!

Rad Bumgarner shirt

Modeled by the distinguished Alex DeWall, captain of the Community Thrift fleet, and created by the illustrious Lil Tuffy, designer of the unforgettable Mission Mission Bingo chart!  Available along with another rad “HUNTER FUCKING PENCE” shirt here.

(Btw, how crazy is it that the Giants have been to three recent World Series riding three completely different aces each time?  First Lincecum, then Matt Cain, and now Madison Bumgarner?  Unreal!)

Go Giants!

Go Giants! in a civilized manner

So far everyone’s been loudly enthusiastic but very well behaved. A commendable bit of acting like you’ve been there before. Of course, the heavy police presence also helps.

It’s starting to feel just like October!

Is it really 20 degrees hotter in the Outer Sunset than in the Mission right now?

Something about this seems real fishy. Also, I’ve lately been quite obsessed with SF Climates!

Way back when I was first looking for a place to live in SF, I happened upon this charming in-law apartment in the Outer Sunset. It had everything I needed, and the sweet old lady landlord seemed nice enough, although she did keep making references to these “crazy parties” she would periodically throw.

As we stood together in the bright, sunny backyard, I remarked about how beautiful a day it was, and innocently asked whether it was often like this. With a deep sigh, she said:

You seem really nice, so I just can’t lie to you. It’s probably this nice here only about 5 days a year.

Disappointed, I left and started looking for places in the Mission. But! Perhaps I was just 8 years too early?
