Ten years in Dogpatch
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 corners of 22nd and Third Streets. Since then, I've seen an amazing transformation and energy into the area. It is quickly becoming a busier area with the great restaurants and businesses: Museum of Craft and Design, Yield Wine Bar, Third Street Boxing Gym, Gilberth's Rotisserie & Grill, Piccino, Rickshaw Bagworks, La Stazione + Wine Bar, Chocolate Lab, Just for You, Serpentine, Hard Knox Cafe, La Fromagerie, The Workshop Residence, Marcella's Lasagneria, Olivier's Butchery, Dekko Salon, Modern Nails, Dogpatch Boulders, the awesome guys at Reno's Liquor Store, Poquito, The Omega Boys Club and the one of a kind Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous ice cream.
The beautiful thing about living here is I know my neighbors and community and they know me. Everyone in this community are special and awesome!
I say, come on down to the Dogpatch District and explore what we have to offer.
