Welcome Fizzary


I spied their sign a couple weeks ago and now I have an update: The Fizzary opened on Monday and is located between 25th and 26th on Mission Street. I just checked it out – it’s quirky, eclectic, retro…I like it!

Main features are all sorts of soda from all around the world, including the ones they make locally. They also have some candy, salt water taffy in particular. Never really thought I could be entertained by checking out a big variety of sodas on display, but somehow I was entranced.

Cool, almost 826-Valencia-like feature is an insta-cooling pool. You can stick a room-temperature fizzy drink in there to cool it in only 3-5 minutes if you want to drink it right away.

The main guy in this photo is Aaron, the Fizzary’s owner. The other guy’s name I didn’t catch, though he complimented me on my backpack which gave him props in my eyes.

Fire between Capp and Mission

I assume this is a different fire to the one Julia reported on. Lots of black smoke bellowed into the air on 24th and mission. People say it was a shed in the back of a house on Capp. Seems they contained the fire before spreading to far. LOADS of fire trucks on the scene to put it out.

why did we not start a uHood social networking site?


Oh wait – we already did!  Why did we not raise a bunch of VC money and make this concept a start-up?  

Check out Nextdoor:  

They aren't "ready" for our neighborhood yet – but we could apply and start a community on their social network.

But already have our great Posterous uHood blog!  We are so ahead of the times.
