Matcha at Stonemill

Stonemill Matcha enjoys a location close to Mission 16 St BART station. If you’re looking for tea and some cheesecake they do not disappoint.

Prices are on the higher side. Their indoor dining is pretty nice with a short 15 minute wait on a Sunday afternoon.

Happy Día de Muertos

Not sure if we supposed to say Happy. Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) looks like a pretty fun celebration for families. My knowledge of Day of the Dead is pretty much restricted to Coco (the movie) which I has one of the best songs may I add.

If you’re in Mission today, check out the Dia de los Muertos Community Festival at Everett Middle School (450 Church St, San Francisco, CA 94114)

Car used in Sept 19 Mission sideshow jailed

Sideshows have been a headache in Mission District. I’m glad the San Francisco Police Department is stepping up their game in deterring sideshows.

San Francisco police step up sideshow crackdown. The police towed away the car of a Pittsburg man after it was seen doing stunts.

The police towed away the car of a Pittsburg man, who they say took part in a sideshow in San Francisco last month.

The car was seen doing dangerous driving stunts on Sept. 19 in the Mission District.

Police say photos show the driver hanging out of the sunroof of his car, holding a traffic cone, while his car was doing donuts in the street.

Last week, a new law in California imposes a harsher punishment for those who participate in illegal sideshows by allowing courts to suspend a driver’s license for up to six months for participating in the illicit car stunt shows.

In the Bay Area, officers have been trying to aggressively intercept the stunt driving events, issuing fines, towing cars, and sometimes making arrests.

In Fairfield, spectators can be fined a $1,000 under a new city ordinance. Vallejo implemented a similar ordinance to curb what city’s leaders call “street terrorism.”

“They are spinning donuts, disrupting our citizens, throwing fireworks at our officers, throwing bottles, it’s been a problem,” said Vallejo Police Captain Jason Potts.


Another bill signed by Newsom, AB3, aims to crack down on sideshows and illegal street racing by allowing courts to issue driver’s license suspensions of up to six months in convictions. (Source: San Francisco Chronicle)

Sideshows tends to happen late at night when the screeching of tires aren’t welcomed. Also, they leave these crazy donut tire marks. If you need a hobby, I highly recommend fishkeeping and furnishing your aquarium.
