What’s up in San Francisco? It depends on who you ask… after being away recently, I realized how bad SF Gate’s city coverage is. If I want to keep up with the interesting news, I’ve got to turn to the blogosphere… so here are a few of the more interesting (to Matt, at least) news items of note:
- Via the Ocean Beach Bulletin, the First Republic Bank or US Bank in the 1800 block of Irving St. was robbed on an otherwise uneventful Monday (Dec. 3) afternoon.
- From the Richmond District blog comes an opportunity to be a Christmas window display… how often do you get an offer like that?
- The Glen Park Association has a great story with some historical photos of Glen Park and Sunnyside about the Mickelsens of Glen Park.
- Noe Valley doesn’t get a First Republic bank, but it will be getting a Pressed Juicery along 24th street. Let the snarky hipster comments begin…
- From Burrito Justice comes a great article with an animated GIF showing the relocation of an apartment building and the widening of Army St (before it became Cesar Chavez).
- D10 Watch has news about tomorrow’s Interdependence Day Celebration. It’s tomorrow (Dec. 12) from 2-7pm.
- Dogpatch Howler reports on a secessionist movement on the city’s east side: the South of Dogpatch area. Does this make it a neighborhoodlet?
- The Lower Haight gets a new restaurant, Rickybobby, at the corner of Haight and Webster. Via Haighteration.
- Hayeswire has an update on the opening of the SF Jazz Center in Hayes Valley. It’s coming up soon – January 21, 2013.
- Parkside, San Francisco blog has news about a fundraiser this Friday to bring a plane back to the Larsen Playground. Because, seriously, what playground doesn’t need a plane!?
- HANC can’t come to terms with 2012, plans protest at city hall today (Dec. 11) about their can’t-come-soon-enough eviction from 780 Frederick St.
That’s the news, happy Tuesday!
