On Monday, November 5th at 10pm, Bravo TV will murder the last remaining scraps of San Francisco's economic engine's dignity. No, really:
Although the show is called “Start-Ups: Silicon Valley”, much of it was filmed right here in SOMA and the Mission (update: and The Shore House was in Upper Castro)! Not only is there a hot scene filmed at Mission Cliffs, we're told the Toga Party was filmed near 26th and Guerrero. The apartment's tenant, who understandably wishes to remain anonymous, tells us his “friend from college” called him up the day of the party and asked if he could “bring his camera crew.” The guests then proceeded to found a pop-up bed sheet-sharing service and 'disrupt' the market for red Solo cups (via going blue cup).
Anyway, the trailer is full of typical brogrammer arrogance and braggadocio that has come to define the tech industry. With gems like “I'd say I'm living paycheck to paycheck, but I don't have a paycheck!” followed by “If you're not aiming for something a billion dollars or higher, why waste your time?”, mixed in with the typical “I never thought I'd ever get here!” (because you didn't think you could afford the rent?) flare, this show is destine to make our Mondays even more depressing than they already are.
Update: Since some people are questioning our “insider knowledge” about the party, we verified that the party's host is, at least, Facebook friends with Toga-wearing Silicon Valley “star” Dwight Crow. We also spoke with mutual friends of the host that vouched for him.
