The Mission in the NYT
Mission Mission notes the respectable and balanced coverage of the Mission in the NYT’s “36 hours in…” series in the travel section. Actually a decent review, much better than the one earlier in the year.
But a great opportunity was lost by not mentioning our favorite pirate store / writing workshop at 826 Valencia.
Burrito Justice was served by addressing The Great Taqueria Debate in neutral fashion. I suspect a visit to El Farolito would initially strike terror in the heart of the unprepared Times reader.
They did get the bit right about no hotels in the Mission. Then again, maybe The Valencia Hotel wasn’t the best precedent. I always get my parents to stay at a bed and breakfast.
