The Mission is literally gentrifying before my eyes and it fucking sucks. In the last month we've had 3 new restaurants open, all of which have that fancy well-designed interior that looks good but is way too noisy and not actually pleasant to eat in, and the food is okay but totally lacking inspiration or passion (Farina, Spork, Beretta). Little fancy clothes boutiques have been popping up like the spring wild flowers. And the people who come are the posh set, they're terrified and disgusted of the real neighborhood, and they scurry between their fancy restaurant and their fancy bar and their fancy cars.
