This past weekend in Frisco was beautiful, no? I spent my time outdoors and indoors soaking up all that the Mish has to offer on a sunny Saturday (and a still sunnier Sunday.)
On Saturday, however, I made a frightening discovery. THERE ARE GANGS IN THE MISH! And they hang out in Dolores Park! They’re somewhat inconspicuous and tend to blend in, but once you know what to look for, they’re easy to spot. Just look for motorized bicycles. That’s right: Moped gangs. For real!
I think they ride mopeds, or “Puchs” as they call them, because they have the convenience of a bike without the need to pedal up those tricky Frisco hills. The one gang that was relaxing in the park called themselves “The Mustache Riders.” They’re a pretty hardcore bunch, what with the tats, denim jackets and Ray-bans. Some park-goers from the Noe informed me of several other gangs with names like “Juicy Shit” (from the Tenderloin), “The Treats” (from Treat St.) and Caipirinhas (from little Brazil). The city is teeming with gang-land activity!
Sanjay and the Snipers, a prominent Silicon Valley moped gang.
There’s even a gang fundraiser rally/brawl on May 9th in Dolores Park. So maybe the D.P. is not the safest location for your afternoon festivities next weekend. Don’t support gang activity in your neighborhood! Who knows which poor cookie shop they shook down for those 3$ baked goods? Anthony’s cookies, perhaps? For a more family-friendly version of the tough guy biker gang aesthetic, try Zeitgeitst! They have a patio!
