Totally Subjective Weather Report

by Andrew Dalton on October 14, 2009

Don’t call it “DoPa”

by Andrew Dalton on September 28, 2009

The other day, the fine folks over at Mission Mission overheard (you know, via twitter) the ultimate San Francisco faux-pas: trying to create your own catchy abbreviation for your hyper-specific location. In this case the offending party mistakenly referred to Dolores Park as “DoPa”.
