    Just thought you’d like to know, there’s a new stand-up comedy night right in the heart of the Mission at the Delirium on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30. The two guys running it, Joey Divine and Joe Gorman, have only done it 3 times so far, so it’s still ramping up. But on April 30th, they’re having their most ambitious show, “Kevin’s vs. Joe’s” featuring upper-level local comics who have performed at the Punchline and all over the Bay Area.

    If you’re interested in covering the event for your blog, send me an email and I’ll put you in contact with them and forward you the flyer. I work for and run my own open-mic room at Annie’s Social Club on Tuesdays.

    I love your blog. I’ve lived on Albion Street for 12 years, so I’m hopelessly pro-Mission.

    thanks to Allan for mentioning our show on here. Nice name!

    your mom is a genius. does it trouble you, then that all of you cleverness may be genetic and have very little to do with anything you bring to the table? Keep up the good work man, I hope my forthcoming media blog can be half as interesting as all of this.

    Aye, there was an apartment fire this morning on Valencia street, between 16th and 17th. Thing is, it was on the 2nd floor of the building that Limon is in. It looked like it was contained to one apartment, but I’m assuming there had to be some water damage to Limon. -Not good for one of our best restaurants.

  8. jinkypatio says:

    hi, your blog smells like someone who moved to the city 2 years ago and thinks they can turn this into a moneymaking scheme. and thinks living in the mission is cool. mabes your friends with brock on sfist? overall, kind of lame, starting with the name of the blog. if this is actually a personal endeavor of a recent resident, then i’m a total dick, and i’m sorry. something just smells funny.

  9. Allan says:

    some us moved to the city as recently as nine months ago, some of us have been here five years, we all like making money, not all of us live in the mission, none of us have ever met brock, and we like the name and don’t think it is lame. also, since you seem to appreciate jonathan richman, i think you’re only kind of a dick. thanks for reading!

  10. Katie Ann says:

    But not only have some people moved to SF, some people are native californians who’ve grown up in the bay area. Which is rare – no?

  11. Jeff says:

    Aye, you guys heard anything about this:

    I have a deck that overlooks Clarion Alley. This morning, at 4:40 a.m., we were woken up by 21 gunshots. Does anyone know what happened??

  20. bougainvillea says:

    Just before 10pm Sunday night, I heard more than the usual number of sirens and looked out the window to see ten police cars pulling up on Cesar Chavez at Valencia. They stopped what looked like a grey SUV and arrested the five guys who were traveling in it. It was quite a dramatic scene. The cops had guns drawn, and they had the passengers get out of the car one at a time and walk backwards towards the cops with their hands in the air. Then they brought someone by for a “cold show,” which meant that a witness was sitting in a car across the street trying to ID the suspects. The whole thing took almost an hour. Does anyone know what this was about?

    Hi Allan,
    It’d be great if you could pass the word on the Prop 8 protest going on tonight, 5:30pm starting at Market & 7th, Civic Center.

    We’re not going down without a fight! This is the big one. Pass the word!

    Wish you went to Wednesday night’s Prop. 8 protest instead of watching Dancing with the Stars? Well, you get another chance. TONITE there will be an even bigger protest (Friday) against Prop 8. The march will start at Civic Center at 5:30 p.m., ending in Dolores Park. (Interesting that it’s not ending at an LDS temple. That seems to be what’s going on in LA today.) It will be going down Market from Seventh, continuing onto Castro and turn on 18th Street which will lead to the park.
    Really, people are pissed. We need this second protest to vent. So….have at it, folks.

    anyone else noticed the number of speed traps in the city? there were 4 cops on geary near arguello a few weeks back. yesterday i saw 3 in the mission. one owas at harrison and 15th another at folsom and 18th. effort to increase revenue?

    Been scouring the web for a picture of the old sign for the Tip Top Inn. Gonna have it painted for my man friend for our anniversary. That’s where we first laid beer goggles on one another. Can’t find a picture of it anywhere and somebody made off with the sign. Do you think the Mission Mission readers might be able to help?

  32. Rob says:

    Anyone else here about 10-15 gun shots last night, around 10:45PM? At Guerrero/20th St, approximately. I can’t find any info on it, but it sure sounded like a gun, plus we saw flashes accompanying the sound.

    • Mel says:

      I heard the same thing, same time, different location though – near 25th and South Van Ness – assumed it was gun shots, but didn’t hear any sirens after. The sound was a little too “boom-boom” though – not enough “pop – pop”.

      • Rob says:

        Yeah, we didn’t hear sirens after either. It sounded like it could have been right on our corner there…

  33. Ariel. says:

    Just got this e-mail from my mom (That’s right, my mom):

    Waiting to cross at Valencia on 16th heading east, a guy pulls up on a bicycle, sprays a dark green dot over some other colors on the curb over the sewer, and then dropped a 2″ X 1″ filled (don’t know with what) baggy into the sewer. A middle ageish white guy with a vest with day glow stripes. Who dat? What’s he up to? On my way, I noticed all the sewer curbs had dark green dots over other colors. So very curious.

  34. Jonathan Foote says:

    That’s a mosquito control guy. He’s dropping a non-toxic hormone-based insecticide into the storm drain so skeeters don’t breed there. He spraypaints a color code on the curb to indicate it’s been treated.
    (How do I know? I asked a guy who was doing that.)
    Awesome that they are on bicycles — unexpected!

    There was a shooting tonight on Florida between 21st and 20th, just a few doors down from the Pink Palace. We heard some shots and then a few minutes later there where police and emergency vehicles on the scene. We went out to check it out and I was standing by a woman giving her statement to the police and my friend noticed two shell casing at my feet. I told the police and they roped off the area.

    i just moved to the Mission about a week ago. I have a photojournalism internship with the Associated Press, i like news and events…in the mean time i make many, many, many mobile images of my daily SF wanderings, a lot from the Mission- neurotically daily uploaded to a Facebook album with many family and friend admirers.

  53. Mr. P says:

    A car parked on Mission Street was pointed south and pulled out quickly from a parking spot after someone driving by seemed to shout/throw something at the car. After the car pulled out it accelerated quickly and then gunned the engine turning right (west) onto 18th street. The pedestrian was in the crosswalk and basically was mowed down as the car went by.

    A fire truck, police, and ambulance were there pretty quickly. It was a pretty scary thing to see in our neighborhood!

    ps i can’t argue that all the girls there aren’t stuck up.

  60. Aurah says:

    Any ideas of what happened last night at 14th and Guerrero? I could see the police but not the actual guy they were screaming at, “Put down the knife! etc.” Then it sounded like maybe they shot him with that beanbag gun and then a couple real gunshots. Of course, the folks in the bar nearby were just hanging on the corner watching the whole thing from across the street. That’s how you know you’ve seen too much.

    I think you should do a post on how Shotwell is the most beautiful street in the Mission. I think folks may say Valencia, but they would be wrong. It has truly stunning people walking to and fro, but the street? Not so much, it’s a commercial strand. How about Dolores? Nah, it’s the border between the encroaching Castro at the 18th St end and further south it’s Baja Noe. 24th? Are you kidding me? It’s great to walk between Papalote at one end and Dynamo at the other, great coffee can be had at at least 3 places. But again commercial, and what with the strollers it’s not as beautiful in walking human terms as Valencia. Now I live on Folsom, and you may argue it’s beauty. The allee is indeed gorgeous but the fact that is four lanes ruins it. That brings me to Shotwell. It shares tree lining with Folsom yet it is informal. I was walking down it today and was struck by its loveliness. There are many old, pre-quake, houses. They are well kept. There were many folks sitting on their stoops. There were several grills fired up cooking meat. I saw some kids playing. I saw one sexy-as-hell girl. Oh god Shotwell is there anything you can’t do? My first place in the Mission was at the far North end. It was a railroad flat and it was dirt cheap. That was 1992. Junkies often parked their cars in front and shot up. But I forgive. My landlord had AIDS. He didn’t make it the 2 years I was there. He was cool and it was sad he left. He planted 2 ficus trees in front. One night The 20-something chick upstairs had a party. Hipster dufii, drunk and disorderly, swung around the tree and dislodged it from its shallow roots. Needless to say I was pissed. I carefully replanted the tree and re-staked it. I watered it and hoped for the best. It was the least I could do for my old landlord. That tree is now huge. It stands next to its paired tree almost as tall as the old railroad flats. Here is the tree. It’s on the left, its partner on the right.,-122.218714&sspn=1.037621,1.686401&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Shotwell+St+%26+14th+St,+San+Francisco,+California+94103&ll=37.766542,-122.416534&spn=0.008108,0.013175&z=16&layer=c&cbll=37.76646,-122.41652&panoid=UvRFQx1Wb7-HypIbED9Jng&cbp=12,63.05,,0,6.03

  80. Jack Walker says:

    In this article( about Dave Eggers, the English author compares the Mission to Camden London. Never been to Camden, is it true? Is the Mission like Camden? Or is it like Berlin or some part of Brooklyn? I once read that Chicago, LA, and New York were the jocks and cheerleaders in high school and San Francisco and Amsterdam were the cool kids huddled in the back of the room mocking the whole thing. So what is it? Also, on a video posted on Uptown Almanac, KQED declares the New York Times declares that the mission is the hippest neighborhood. Is that true, I see a lot of schlubs walking around (including me.) I keep singing the Dave Frishberg song “I’m Hip” in my head (“when it was hip to be hep I was hep.”) The song is really about how uncool he is. Maybe the Mission is like that?

    I was inspired to ask after I stopped by a corner store I will not name, and I unearthed several cans of original formula Joose lurking in a dilapidated corner behind a bunch of newer reformulated ones. They are my treasure stash until I drink them probably next week.

    Are there any enterprising craigslist sellers offering them for “collectors”? How rare are they now, anyways?

    why not something on the new coffee shop at the 24th St. BART station, Silver Stone? That’s a huge improvement from Carlos’s bar, which was a continual mess and engendered lots of fights that spilled into the street.

  110. Mission Resident says:

    FYI, another cell phone mugging tonight at about 8pm on 23rd Street between Potrero and Hampshire. Victim started screaming and the two assailants fled and have not been apprehended. Wearing dark hoodies and baggy jeans.

  111. Ima furry dog says:

    Saturday, 4/14, 2:30 AM, Mission between 16th and 17th (mcdonald’s side): any idea what caused the fresh trail of wet blood running the entire length of the block? (and possibly farther, I didn’t check.) A stabbing? Do you guys keep up with the police blotter?

  112. Daniel Zarco says:

    I have seen that there is the option to follow Mission Mission on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and FeedBurner. Why not give the option to follow Mission Mission on Google+. Please consider this request.

    P.S.-Reply soon.

  113. Daniel Zarco says:

    Well, I don’t know. It is an alternative to Facebook and Twitter. You know, without all the noise.

  114. Chrispy says:

    Hey there,

    I thought you guys might be interested in this new Mission event.

    I came across a band (Huntinanny) playing from their van on Friday nights across the street from the Delirium bar.

    They use a small generator to power their amps and lights and the drummer plays INSIDE the van. I have seen them every Friday night and they played for Critical Mass last night – pretty sweet.

  115. Timmy says:

    I just found out and wanted to spread the word that the guys behind Whiskey Commons Street Food at Dear Mom on Sundays are going to be offering bike delivery to Dear Mom’s sister bars, Evelyn Lee and Thieves Tavern.

    So now when we’re playing pool at Evelyn or Tavern (because there is no more pool table at Dear Mom), no one has to miss out on food.

  116. scum says:

    My neighbor informed me that SFPD came by her house and told her a violent sex offender had just moved into The Mission Hotel @ 520 S Vav Ness. Google Dwight Jackson sex offender for more info. Please spread the word. Thanks, scum.

    Walking home through the Mission in a fursuit at 1AM is scary!

    There is a fursuit rap video shoot this week for MC Crumbsnatcher. Last time he did a show at Truck on 15th and Folsom, they said it was like “Chuck-E Cheese from a gay nightmare.”

    Hey guys,we were wondering if maybe our blog, could be added to the blog roll. While not soley a Mission blog, we have a lot of content that is relevant to the Mission,Dolores park and cycling. Thanks for the consideration.Cheers

  120. Tam Rose says:

    Does anyone know what happened to the bicyclist that was hit by a car on July 25th, near 16 & S. Van Ness around 7:50am? I hope that person is okay, but I didn’t see any information anywhere about it. I was waiting for a bus near there but couldn’t hear any information.

      You realize that San Francisco is a city where even a supervisor from a predominantly gay district can’t get TOTAL nudity prohibited?

      Fight the good fight in a REALLY fucked up town.

  123. Luckyme says:

    twice now I’ve been in dp and heard the ‘cold beer cold water’ man walking by only offering cold water! This totally ruins my park experience (and the Official Slogan of the Mission). Is this due to police pressure? can we protest somewhere? sign me up!

  124. Some Guy in North Dakota says:

    I have been reading your website all evening. I didn’t know I could connect to websites on other friggin’ planets.

    Being from North Dakota, all I can say is “Wow”. Maybe I should include “Whew!” WHAT IS IT WITH YOU PEOPLE???

    There are about as many people in this entire state as there are in SF. The few that dress/act/talk/think like you folk get put in our State Mental Hospital.

    I am stunned. Amazed. (mostly stunned).

    Is there something they put in the water there? What’s the deal?

    I just do NOT get it.

    //ya, youbetchya

    • D. Jon Moutarde says:

      That’s our story — we’re a magnet for people who are driven nuts by living in North Dakota.


  125. Some other Guy from ND says:

    I am responding to “Some Guy from ND”. He is so correct in his evaluation of North Dakota. Last evening I went out for dinner at a local Chinese restaurant whose cuisine was SO bad I should have been paid to eat it. The best on offer was deep fried salad shrimp. Other questionable offerings consisted of individual oysters placed on mussel shells and topped w/ an indeterminate cheese. I’ve always realized that ND’s limited offerings were at the bottom of any scale thus it should be comforting to know that ethnic variation is no culinary adventure. It is not comforting. These small minded and conservative locals deserve nothing better than is on offer and in my opinion deserve less, if it can get any worse.

  126. You know, I don’t want to stir up a fuss, but it would give me a great deal of pleasure to kill spam comments on Mission Mission with a heavy hand.

  127. Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

    Something going on at Guerrero and 21st. Not sure what, but I just drove by on my way home and there were 10 cop cars, including some police in riot gear. The cops were just sort of standing around on the median, but more were arriving as I went by.

  128. Aubrey says:

    Hello MissionMission,

    This is a blog from a guy I know in passing in our small dive bar community – turns out he is an amazing writer, I am completely addicted to this blog and I think he deserves some props from his community. Just was hoping that you could put the word out about him!

    Hey there,

    I was on your site and noticed that you used WordPress as your platform. I thought I’d reach out and invite you to preview our advanced content delivery WordPress plugin that reduces bandwidth resources. In addition to reduced bandwidth resources your site will also experience more efficient image serving based on your end users geographical location like a traditional CDN. This is a free plugin and takes only a few minutes to install. We’re offering early adopters like yourself free use of the service too.

    Although we are a type of CDN you can run our plugin concurrently with your CDN (or any host) and we actually encourage it. For example, we have many sites running us on top of MaxCDN, Cloudflare, Cloudfront and others for maximum efficiency.

    I was hoping we could discuss further and you’d allow me to send you our special invitation (billing bypass) link to create your account.

    Hi Mission Mission!

    I wanted to send a request for help getting out the word for a scifi series I’m publishing. I live at Baker/Fell and am throwing a release party for my multimedia, scifi adventure at Vinyl (Oak and Divis) on January 29.

You can check out excerpts from both the e- and companion comic book series on their websites, and see the growing grassroots support at my facebook page:

    I’ve attached more information, but please don’t hesitate with questions.

    Thanks for considering!

    I just noticed a place called Pollo Campero on Mission Street. From the Yelp reviews, it seems like its been open since 2013. I checked out the website and they have more than 50 restaurants in the US. Why was there no protests over this chain restaurant? It just really angers me that people act all holier than though and talk about maintaining the neighborhood feel…only when it’s in their best interests.

    Howdy there,,

    I’m writing you today to invite you a preview tasting of my new venture called Hal Jr’s Bar B Q.

    Hal Jr’s Bar B Q Is Kansas City style bar b q meat, slow cooked for 10-12 hours in a real hardwood smoker, using a blend of hardwood oak charcoal, hickory & applewood. It’s a secret KC- style spicy dry rub, with a tomato molasses based sauce served on the side. Sides vary from the traditional such as mac n cheese & baked beans, to the locally inspired corn salad.

    You may be curious about me. My name is Jason Lund. I was born & raised in St. Louis, which fostered my love of midwestern BBQ. I perfected my cooking craft in a variety of kitchens in Lawrence, KS & New York City, before taking a brief hiatus. Now, I’m back and excited to bring the midwestern BBQ i loved and grew up on here to San Francisco.

    Please join us at Mission Minis, September 20th at 7:30 , for our first preview tasting. I’m excited to show you what I’ve been working on!

    Please RSVP by September 15th to

    Thanks for your time and see you soon,
