Coming to the uHood soon! This is a Wes Burger a pop-up that I found in Mr Pollo before the holidays. They should be coming back in Feb (likely on Sunday nights) and I highly recommend you try it. I would say it is the best burger I have had in SF – and that’s big!
If you don’t believe me – see what Broke Ass Stuart has to say: http://brokeassstuart.com/sf/2013/11/15/wes-burger-possibly-sfs-best-new-burger-joint/
As some of you know … I am currently taking NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Training) with the San Francisco Fire Department. They are going to offer another course starting soon right in our very own uHood! The class prepares you to be a emergency responder alongside the fire department in the case of a major disaster (think earthquake). There are six three hour sessions taught by firefighters. I have found the course really interesting thus far.

And when you graduate from NERT you get your own helmet and orange vest. I know you all will be very jealous. And yes – you can all just come to my house when the big earthquake comes. We all know that was your plan anyways, Now I will be better prepared!
new at 29th & Mission …. the Pizza Hacker. Soft open now. Should be open for real by Jan 16. Menu looks like pizza (surprise, surprise) cooked on a “FrankenWeber” grill converted into a pizza over. http://thepizzahacker.com/
They’re on every corner affected by the Cesar Chavez redevelopment. Any speculation on their purpose? Crash bollards? Future pedestrian crosswalk buttons? NSA spying apparatus?
What does the erection of these mighty metal phalluses in our neighborhood mean?
