Celebrate All Things Mission This Saturday

Celebrating the melting-pot better known as the Mission

Oh, the Mission….(sigh). Definitely the most colorful, diverse and energetic neighborhood in our city. A smile comes to my face when I think of good times I’ve had searching for the best Chile Verde burrito, relaxing in the sun in Dolores Park, riding bikes down Valencia, shopping in cute botiques and passing time (or passing out) at any of the numerous bars in probably the coolest hood in San Francisco.

This Saturday, Public Works presents an 8-hour event celebrating our melting-pot neighborhood, with music, art, fashion and fun. For just $5 (with RSVP), everyone is invited to come early and enjoy FREE FOOD & DRINK SPECIALS from 8-10pm. FREE tasters from 8-10pm (while supplies last and full portions also available for puchase) courtesy of Gypsy Kitchen (BBQ), Angry Man Eats (Chicken n Waffles), Panguita/wachinango (fish tacos/tostadas), and Saucy Dumplings (asian/fusion dumplings, gourmet buns and noodles).

Dance the night away on the main stage with a live performance by Ghosts on Tape and Afrolicious DJ’s gettin’ funky with live percussionists. Start of Mardi Gras a bit early with a “Masquerade Carnival” upstairs. There will also be fashion installations and trunk shows presented by local designers and vendors.

Even if you’re so broke, you never thought you’d be donating your money to any greater cause than your own liver transplant, your $5 will benefit SF General Hospital, SF General’s Dr. Rick, Psychiatric Department Volunteer & Rehab ServicesRoot Division SFSmiles. Do the right thing this Saturday night – celebrate all things Mission.

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
