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!

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

Happy Spring Season 2015!

Poem: Eve of Spring Season in San Francisco Sunshine...      ...birds happily chirp or I'd say they sing and fly around excitingly. The smell of fresh air, pretty flowers bloom and sun shinning bright in neighborhood. Runners out running along the embarcadero as I watch them from the Muni T line on my way to work.  I continue to believe and have hope. I am constantly reminded to be inspired and to inspire.  Stay proud of who YOU are.  ~vanessa "To be interested in the changing seasons is . . . a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring."  —  George Santayana
