Mission Mission to Celebrate its 9th Anniversary This Weekend

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I remember first hearing about Mission Mission when I moved back to San Francisco from my year in New York in 2008. The Mission was a pretty interesting place back then, it was a mix of Latino families, bike messengers, fresh out of college liberal arts majors, and lots of people who were “in a band”.

Neighborhood blogs were growing in importance and the idea of The Mission having it’s own hyperlocal website seemed perfect. It documented all the weird little victories and failures that transpired in our little corner of the world. From filming a porn in Arinell Pizza to Steve Jobs getting turned away at Flour and Water to a woman shitting on her own apartment building, Mission Mission was there to cover it all and share it with a little snicker. Mission Mission quickly became the neighborhood’s living room and so many of the people who lived in the area took an active part in the blog by sending in their own tips and by being cranky ass commenter on the posts.

While the Mission has changed vastly since those times, Mission Mission is still here giving us the dirt. And all these years later, our neighborhood living room is celebrating its 9th year!  Here is the info from the FB invite:

We’re gonna be 9 years old this Sunday, so we’re having a party at 9am! (Mostly because Ariel is busy later in the day, but also because we’re excited Pop’s is a 6am bar now.) Join us for:

❤︎ Bacon Bloody Marys
❤︎ Irish Coffees
❤︎ Mexican Coffees
❤︎ Regular ol’ coffee
❤︎ Brunch at St. Francis Fountain afterward, of course
❤︎ DJ sets by Allan and friends

Hope to see you there!
