Friday Night in Dogpatch

It's a really good night knowing I've had two Gilberth's Winegarita, a Camarones Fritos (Masa Batter, spiced tamarind sauce), Lechuga asada, grilled little gem lettuce, bacon vinaigrette, manchego cheese and lastly, Camote frito - sweet potato fries. I'm pretty content. The beverage is making me happy. 

One would think, I would be out and about on this amazing weekend in San Francisco, but I'm with my laptop and having a good ol' time here at Gilberths Rotisserie on Third Street. 

I'm very proud to be a native San Franciscan. I take pride. My friends take pride as well. It's a great time to be originally from here during this weekend. We have about 6 different events taking place this weekend in addition, San Francisco is rated one of the top cities in the US, again.  

  1. Fleet Week 
  2. San Francisco Giants vs. Cincinnati Reds Playoffs
  3. Bluegrass Festival
  4. Castro Festival
  5. San Francisco 49ers vs. Buffalo Bills
  6. America's Cup 
I'm with my laptop tonight to look for something new, career wise. I'm ready for something different. The work I'm looking for is social media related where I can perhaps blog, talk about my neighborhood, or other neighborhoods, like La Mission, Excelsior, or anywhere in the city. After all, I know this city. I'm also working on two projects, one, Dogpatch Neighborhood Association, the importance of being involved in your neighborhood community, the benefits of being involved, etc., and two gathering filmmakers to watch a screening of "Side by Side" Keanu Reeves host this documentary which investigates the history, process and work flow of both digital and photochemical film creation. My goal is to get filmmakers, artists, friends to come to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to watch the film and have a post discussion. I'm working on the details of the post events. I want to do this to show and tell the film industry business there is an interest here in SF! 

Go Giants! Go Niners! Go A's! Fleet Week hooray! USA for America's Cup!

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend These past three weeks I've been diggin' into my movin' groovin' music vault (aka cd's, cassette tapes and do have 1 8-track, LOL). In my late teens and twenties, I listened to lots of different music (I'm blessed that I was open to ALL music as it made me appreciate different genres). Since places, I love to go to such as libraries, events, and museums are closed and my friends quarantining I am finding myself playing music. Like I'm going back to my music. Back then, I used to listen to a cd or cassette tape from beginning to end and got to know the album real good. Here's one that I would play to death. #MikiHoward "Ain't Nobody Like You" is my favorite of all. I hope you enjoy it and dance to it. It's a piece of feel-good music. I will continue to share music with you all. Feel free to share your music favorites with me. :) It will keep us going. ~vanessa ross

Ten years in Dogpatch

It's the first weekend of August and I am feeling pretty blessed. This blog post is dedicated to my neighborhood Dogpatch Historic District. Some of you know I enjoy staying busy with not only with work, (plus invovled in other projects) but am active in my beloved Dogpatch Neighborhood of ten years. I've been a member of the Dogpatch Neighborhood Association since 2004 and in 2009 I was voted in as the Membership Coordinator/Corresponding Secretary. I'm currently still on board as I was voted in again early this year. Thank you neighbors. The growth of Dogpatch has flourished beautifully with the help of local newspapers, NY Times, Travel & Leisure Magazine and more plus social media.  More condos are currently being developed and more yet to hit the ground soon. The Muni T line on 3rd Street has definitely help bring people into the area. In addition, the Dogpatch Saloon is under new management and reopened last Monday. It is more inviting and enliven's the

Proud to be a Native San Franciscan

The past six months (or should I say years living in Dogpatch District) I've been blessed with amazing experiences I had not expected. As some of you know me well enough, I stay active in Dogpatch community since I moved here almost 14 years ago.  I believe the universe wanted me to live on this side of town in San Francisco before anything was really here.  I thought (and still do) volunteering every year for almost 13 years, is something great to do for the community and the neighborhood I live in. I've seen it grow and grow, almost like a child like where you want to protect it, defend it and let it grow to something so wonderful. Really, it's not me, it's the community that I fed off of over the years because of their passion, drive and determination in protecting this area - Dogpatch Historic District. Summer 2009, I was elected to be on board of Dogpatch Neighborhood Association as Member Coordinator/Corresponding Secretary. Re-elected last October 2015 f
