Coffee, like almost everything else these days, is a sport. Everyone has a favorite team (or coffee making method or political affiliation or design style or TV drama or rapper or comic book), discusses techniques and relives great moments with other likeminded fans, and argues with fans of other teams. The proliferation and diversification of media over the past 35 years created thousands of new sports and billions of new teams.

Even Danny Bowien isn’t sure that this hybrid can work. Remember when mashups were just songs that played together?
In related news, is anyone else psyched about the possibility of a long distance drone airlifting this Mission Cantina burrito back to the Mission??

Today SFist has learned that her lease is, indeed, signed for a space near 16th and Mission, construction has begun, and she’ll be having a press conference in the coming weeks.
As Supervisor David Campos’s aide Nathan Allbee tells us, she “should be ready to open by late spring.”
Also today we can confirm that the location is at 16th and Capp, across from Chile Lindo Empanadas and a couple doors over from Maruya, a.k.a. the former Bar Bambino.
Eater SF reports:
Balls Deep Arancini, from Mandy Jay, Jonn Villa, and Matt Eloy (who’ve cooked at Big Sur’s Henry Miller Library and at Seven Hills, respectively), is serving fried risotto balls in flavors like eggplant-pesto, avocado-jalapeño, and tomato-roasted garlic to fortify Saturday drinkers at El Rio (9 pm-1 am).

Yum! Let’s get to work!
A quote from the owner of the restaurant Loló, which just moved from 22nd and Bartlett to 21st and Valencia:
I can see the change in the people that come in. The street we were on before made some people uncomfortable, especially older people and families.
Sales are up 40%.
