While it’s going to take a lot to replace the awesomeness of the hammocked ladies in the original mural, Jonathon here is definitely up to the task. He’ll probably paint your house if you ask him too.

Hmm, graffiti or art?
“SF Mission Protector” posted this video busting a local graffiti artist last night:
In all fairness, the dude knocks on the window twice to let the guy know that he’s gonna call the cops. But this kid just waves and carries on putting a bird on it (“it” being a wall in this case). The cops show up and grab him.
Who is this mysterious “SF Mission Protector”? Does anyone know any orphaned billionaire business owners around the ‘hood?
It seems like this place has been boarded up for years, because it has. The restaurant, which shares a name with an Indian TV show about conjoined twins who share a liver, will finally open this May. According to the sign seen above.
Apparently the same people have a spot of the same name in Palo Alto. I asked my friend and collaborator, Palo Alto resident Tanuj Chopra, what he thought about it and he said the food is fine and they have a solid reputation in the peninsula. About the style of their temporary sign he said “it’s interesting as the spots here are not graf or urban or edgy – feel like that’s just a temporary look or maybe a different marketing direction for SF.”
Well, they wouldn’t be the first to welcome themselves to the neighborhood by throwing up some “edgy urban artwork”. And maybe it does capture the feel of the establishment, according to the owner, this outlet will be a “high energy” 200 seat Indian tapas restaurant and bar. I guess we’ll see in May.
