I’m writing you this week from sunny San Diego, as I am on my Thanksgiving break. While I gorge myself on tacos and lounge by the pool, I’m sure you’re curled up with tea and trying to keep dry through the storm. Why don’t you check out what you missed this week?

Wouldn’t one of these be perfect at the Power Exchange? [Mission Mission]

Opium dens in San Francisco? I know, hard to believe. Here are some vintage shots of some places in the City that have since been put out of business. [Spots Unknown via Laughing Squid]

Burrito Justice reports some interesting movement on Valencia in the now defeated American Apparel space. What do you think might go in there? [Burrito Justice]

I love this piece from Steve Powers’ latest exhibiton, ESOS, at White Walls. Check it out if you get a chance! [my love for you is a stampede of horses.]

Have you checked out the Mission Casbah yet? Held in the Sub-Mission Gallery, this place is shaping up to be one hell of a party. Get in on it before everyone else does — admission is free! 11am-6pm, Sunday. [Mission Casbah]

Vodka is one hell of a liquid, but did you know it also makes a good hand sanitizer? Learn how to make your own from the leftover hooch that the bar rag you brought home didn’t finish. [DIY Life]

If you have any favorite links from the week, leave them in the comments or send them to!

Monica Miller - The Intern

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
