This one was a beaut! It attacked a church and everything. All pictures taken from 24th street.
It looks like there is a big hollywood production going on right now at La Taqueria. There are costume trucks, actor trailers and cameras, the whole shebang. Does anyone know who’s acting in the scene?
Hey Everyone, it’s been a while. If you haven’t already, check us out on twitter at @omgthemish. Now enough pandering, time to report some BREAKING NEWS. At around 10:00pm tonight a trio of youngsters were spotted joyriding around the mission in a stolen car. They tried to do donuts at 26th and Mission but ended up crashing right into Casa Guadalupe #3 where they only sell day old “pan”. After the accident, the culprits ran into Lilac Alley and changed clothes.
What is this world coming to when car thieves pack a change of clothes?
The Elvis/Prince/Dolly house has officially burned down. Last week there was a dangerous fire in the top flat of a building that did not contain working fire alarms. It left two people in critical condition. This sign was placed outside the building the day after the fire:
Levity in the face of tragedy? Hogwash. This sign is heartless and crude and should not be tolerated in a civilized society. Not only that, it is just plain rude. Downstairs neighbors, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
If you’re feeling charitable, head on over to the donation site and join the trio of donors to this very worthy cause.
If you feel like the correct response is combining alcohol and smoking instead, the victims are having a benefit this week Thursday December 15th at El Rio. The event will go until 4:30am to memorialize the two week anniversary of this fire.

If you’re not enjoying the suburban tourist gang rape the neighborhood is experiencing right now, maybe head down to the 24th street BART station and enjoy some free donuts. Compliments of somebody.
This charming piece can be yours if you swing by Florida and 19th in the next half hour!
If you make it to Dolores park today, try heading down under the bridge. There is a performance art exhibition going on all weekend. The theme: angry Latin poetry. This guy’s an artist. Look for him under the fart graffiti.
As some of you may have noticed, the St. Francis Fountain have changed their straws. Gone are the halcyon days of the neighborhood favorite paper barbershop straws. Instead we get plastic ones in soulless blue and clear.
So maybe you can actually get through a milkshake in under 3 straws (5 if you’re wet-of-lip), but who cares? What really matters in an establishment of this type is the old timey feel. When I go to The Fountain, I want an experience. I want to feel like I’m stepping into the 1950s, a whole world of nostalgia I never lived through. This whole a plastic straw thing, that just ruins the illusion. I think I’m not alone on this one.
What do you think, The Mish?
Looking for a place to watch the Final Four while maintaining your sense of ironic detachment? Try The Phone Booth.April 1, 2011
That festival of beerdranking, debauchery and gambling is upon us.
No, not Punks V. Hipster Fight Club night. It’s the FINAL FOUR. Real sports fans head out to places like Kilowatt and The Phoenix to catch the end of the tourney, but what if you’re the kind of person who thinks that Butler is the school that Jeffrey from the Fresh Prince went to, or want to watch some roundball with a tall can of Tecate while wearing a shiny 70s Hoosiers jersey and a rainbow headband. What about you? Where can you go?
The place for you is The Phone Booth. Since the 2010 Giants World Series run and historic victory for beards, The Peebs has transitioned from a place where you can ironically listen to “La Roux” and smoke cigarettes indoors to a place where you can ironically watch “The Super Bowl” or “Glee” and smoke cigarettes indoors (but not at the bar).
So no matter which type of animals you like (Huskies, Rams, Tar Heels or Wildcats) the Phone Booth is a great place to enjoy the end of March Madness and maybe wake up in a ditch afterwards.
