HANGR 16 Pops Up on 16th

If you made it out to the Mission Holiday Block Party this past weekend, you might have spotted a long and narrow, white walled clothing shop blasting electronic music and pouring wine for everyone who walked in to door.  That sounds like every store in the Mission, you say?  Well, I'm talking specifically about HANGR 16, the new clothing pop-up shop on 16th directly across from Monk's Kettle, which sells shirts, hoodies, ties, dresses and other fashionable items from various Mission designers.  They tell me the name HANGR comes from the fact the place looks like an aircraft hangar and clothes are hung on hangers.  Apparently they couldn't decide between hangar or hanger, so they just added a dash of web 2.0, dropped the vowel and, voila, HANGR 16.

The most important thing about this clothing pop-up is you can score some rad t-shirts there, such as the beauty that depicts a drunk DPT parking officer crashing into a meter as a pigeon smoking a cigarette and wearing a fedora looks on.  Yeah, let that all soak in.

3128 16th Street. Open now until December 23rd.

Freedminds Show

Thefreedminds makes some clothes I like and they are having a party this friday that should be pretty cool. Unfortunately word is that the Odd Future collective will not be in attendance which sucks since I missed them when they were at thee parkside last spring but fuck it. ten bucks at the door I believe. 

Art Bikes Invade Dolores Park

There was some sort of art bike photo shoot going in Dolores this weekend.  Not sure what the story was behind that, but I'm blaming Mission Loc@l.

Also, one of these days I'll learn how to focus my camera.  PROMISE.

(alright, this last ride probably wasn't part of the shoot, but it's still an excellent application of a Darth Vadar mask to a cheap urban assault vehicle)

Cool Kid Halloween: Crappy Camera Coverage Edition

Ever wanted to know what a Mission District Halloween looked like through the lens of a 7-year-old camera from Sears?  You're in luck.

“Two Turntables and a Microphone” clearly took home the prize for “most culturally relevant costume.”

In an ocean of delusional people believing wearing a Giants jersey and a beard was a costume, one man knew how to not suck at Halloween.

Ordinarily a Jesus holding an 18 of Tecate is not noteworthy, but this cool kid was walking down Mission Street barefoot.

A giant burrito strapped to a messenger bag?

Best UPS driver costume I saw all night.

Lady Gaga riding a demon horse-bike.

FInally, I'll leave you with a snap of a horse making sweet, sweet love with a zombie.  Time to start counting down the days to Santacon.
