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 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 BarChocolate 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.

Cheers,

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
