Here are some local links to kick off your Wednesday. Go Warriors!
- Reader Derek snapped the above pic of a new biz, Cafe Sis, that is moving in at the old Balboa Sushi location (402 Balboa). Very mysterious – that’s all we know right now!
- Don’t miss this nice story on the Food Pantry program at the Richmond District Neighborhood Center and at a satellite location at Lafayette Elementary School. “Most of the participants at the new pantry are seniors. Many have lived in the area for their entire lives. With the addition of a new pantry closer to their homes, they’re able to take home weekly grocery staples like fresh fruits and vegetables, rice, and eggs.”
- Even Adolf Sutro could not have predicted housing prices in 2016 San Francisco. His old Gardener’s Cottage, located at 542 46th Avenue, is on the market for $3.5 million. The cottage was built back in 1884 as a 2 bedroom, 1 bath (1,300 sq ft) and was the first house on the block. After a gutting in 2000, the house is now five bedrooms and three baths, and at an impressive 3,280 square feet.
- A clothing company called Mint Worldwide has moved in at 6207 Geary, just across from the Russian Orthodox Cathedral. The store’s selections include stuff that is way too hip for us and runs with the motto “Always Fresh”. “Founded in 2010 in Hong Kong, and later spreading to San Francisco, Japan and Korea in 2013, the brand has made its mark with a number of hip-hop artists, professional athletes, college students and techies alike. By blending both eastern and western cultures into one lifestyle, Mint appeals to a more diverse culture.” We don’t see any hours on their website or on Yelp, but you can call them at (415) 829-9587 to find out more.
