All of us have passed by a vacant storefront in our neighborhorhood and thought, "Dammit, I'd love to see a [Lao restaurant / cat grooming shop / cute lifestyle boutique selling things that look like they were made in 1850] here!" Well, some enterprising citizen in the Richmond isn't just content to daydream -- he or she has taken action to make that vision a reality.

Yesterday, the Richmond District Blog posted a photo of the above sign, which was recently plastered on the entrance to a former convenience store. The post has, of course, launched a war in the comments section about the quality of the El Gordo location on 24th and Clement, of which SFoodie is a fan. But that's, like, a half-mile away. And we have a few brilliant ideas about restaurants we'd like to see in our own neighborhood. If you have access to a large-format printer and some wheat paste, we'd be happy to share them with you.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
