Sunday Streets, Mission Edition, is This Weekend. It'll Be Hard to Get Off 24th Street
Sunday Streets takes over the Mission this weekend ― the route jags through the neighborhood from Dolores Park to Potrero Avenue, in a figure that looks a little like the numeral "4" all dressed up as a unicorn (it's complicated: go look).
Dustin Jensen/SFwiggle Just because they can.
On 24th Street, the heart of the beast, you've got options beyond the taco stand at Vallarta, which, by the way, would be a fine place to cleave to. but just off 24th on Harrison, Humphry Slocombe plans to open an hour early, at 11 a.m. instead of noon. "Is that special enough?" asks Jake Godby.
La Victoria, 24th Street's new locus of food energy, is planning DJs from about 1-7 p.m. and ― what else? ― street food. Meanwhile, the guys at Pal's Takeaway plan to set up on the sidewalk, hawking $3 pork belly sliders ― sort of Jeff Mason and Dave Knopp's go-to good-times offering. And Local Mission Eatery's Yaron Milgrom says he's planning to pack up grab-and-go boxes. "Like a picnic," he says, "ready for people to take back to Dolores Park." Local Mission's regular Sunday brunch is being conceived as portable, too: chicken and potato hash, a squash and basil frittata, and ― well, Milgrom says chef Jake des Voignes is still figuring out the third item.
"Normally we have grits, but grits don't travel well," Milgrom says. We can vouch for that.
