There is one urge I consistently feel after a long night of libations in The Mish: the need for a $15, awesomely complicated veggie burger that is too large for my mouth.
The Mish really does make dreams come true. Urbun Burger (17th and Valencia) has stepped up to the plate:
I do have some questions, though, Urbun Burger… One of your super burger flippers was taking a sidewalk break with a pack o’ Parliament Lights, and his company schwag all seemed to be misspelled. In fact, the giant logo on his t-shirt read, “URBAN BURGER.”
DISAPPEARING PUNS? I don’t know what to think.
So cute! Today we found this mega-originale street art:
Really “Pop Art” goes game-show, if you ask me. Anyone want to buy some vowels?
Best suggestion to fill in the blank wins a free “OMG the Mish!” t-shirt! LEGIT!
Last night, a mysterious and bespectacled dude handed us this legit ad and encouraged attendance:
Three artists play the Adobe Books Backroom Gallery for zero loot?! Seems too magical to be for realz. I’ve been e-stalking the crap out of these musicians, and I have got to say, their tunes are solid.
Slap this noise on your calendar! February 25th at 7 PM will find you in the company of great used books, underground art, and cute people with inspirational haircuts. A night full of win, for sure!
Also: Casey Chisholm, I would like to take you for burritos. You seem neat.
First of all, The Roxie is adorbs. Nestled between some of 16th Streets most beautiful sights (remind me to tell you about the tranny that offered to sell me her panties), it is a bastion of urban entertainment and really, truly always features a great line-up of flicks.
Buy your tix under the marquis, and a kindly [hip] ticket taker will guide you to one of the Roxie’s two viewing areas. Also, as luck would have it, your ticket stub will get you $1 off your next drink at Dalva, a raucous little speakeasy that spoons The Roxie! (Now that’s what I call rad!) Film specifics…. after the jump!
For closing night, we checked out “Limbo Lounge,” and … whoa. It was effing great, ya’ll. The acting was phenom, the plot was entertaining and thought provoking (without being all, “OMG WE ARE SO MUCH SMARTER THAN YOU WILL EVER BE!”), and the cinematography was top-notch. Most IndieFest flicks get played twice over the course of the festival, but this one was voted as an audience favorite so it earned one of the super-coveted closing night slots! Check out their website (linked above) for upcoming festival appearances.
Don’t be dismayed if you missed the fest! Upcoming films at the Roxie include: “Precious” (in case you missed this massively hyped Best Picture nominee) and “The Cove” (a documentary that sounds excellently impressive.) I will be there, and I will share my buttery popcorn.
OMG, there I was, just listening to a Casiotone for the Painfully Alone mix on the 5-Fulton. I look up and who should be sitting next to me but…
I feel totally re-affirmed – This must DEFINITELY be the sickest place to live.
I just stumbled upon what might by my new favorite Mish hangout. It’s a super-fun biker themed restaurant/bar, and it’s right here in The Mish! It’s called Zeitgeist and I encourage all to check it out!
The bartenders and “bouncers” are pretty cute. They’re dressed up in punky/grungy gear and look like badasses. They even put on a solid ‘tude to keep the campy vibe alive. I saw a girl at the food hut who was refused the grilled cheese sandwich she ordered because she didn’t tip. (He just gave her the money back and told her she should have tipped.) Hilarious! The bad customer service adds to the fantasy of being at a dirty biker bar in a small town, when you’re really in cosmopolitan San Francisco! But as with all theme restaurants/bars, you’ll pay extra for the experience.
At the bar there was a big long line of pre-made Bloody Mary’s. Kind of a gimmick, I’d say, but the crowd didn’t seem to mind. They were drinking them down like they were homemade! Mmm, kitch-a-rific! There are funny signs over the bar and even a banner with a downward arrow and the words “Tamale Lady” (which I assume is some sort of ironic joke about how many white people were there?) Funny!
While most of the staff are pretty good at their jobs and don’t break character too often, I think I saw one of the bussers wearing a Rolex. Gotcha! Don’t worry buddy, I won’t tell your boss you slipped up.
We <3 the Mission like there is no tomorrow. It is sixteen flavors of cool, and every day we are all, “OMG, The Mish, you really take the cake.”
This ‘hood just doesn’t get enough cred, so join us on our hella-fun adventures as we get to know its art-tastic, underground nooks. So much untapped potential, so much left to be explored…
WE LOVE THE MISH AND WE DON’T CARE WHO KNOWS IT!
