I found a place in the Mission District!

Yeah, it's a pretty cool place, pre 1906.

The units are all clean and renovated, and the couple who owns the place live here too. They run an educational farm called Pie Ranch (because it's shaped like a piece of pie), which aims to transform inner city kids' relationship to their food, working with the community to build "healthier local food systems".

The storefront is going to be the new home of the artist run contemporary arts organisation Southern Exposure, and in a few years the intention is to open a small cafe adjacent--the Pie Shop, I believe it's tentatively called. There's an event on Saturday at 10am if anyone's interested in attending; it's about the future of the Pie Shop and its place in the community, and, yes, there will be pie to be had--

See you there!

  6. If I lived at 25th and Mission I would have a crispy taco (two layers of tortilla with melty cheese between) from La Taqueria *every damn day*.

    Just sayin'.

  7. Any residence that revolves around baked goods is solid in my book.

  8. Nice going. That must be a relief. I've moved around 10 times in the past 3 years. It's the hardest thing for me. I'm glad to be in one place now. Good for you! BTW... I will come up to your corner for a visit next week.
