Bernal Flats My Ass

August 23, 2012

The LaLeRePaCo (La Lengua Revolutionary Party Committee) certainly welcomes the attention to our finely crafted microhood. But WTF, Bold Italic, Bernal Flats?


La Lengua, as seen on TV!

Even the imperialistic Bernal overlords recognize the supremacy of La Lengua, never mind Google Maps:

But The Bold Italic’s heart is in the right place. Look for me at Rock Bar wearing a bandolier.

    The only acceptable alternative to “La Lengua” is “Bermino Triangle.”

      Ha! Certainly superior to “SoCha” or “Transmission”.

      “SoCha” makes me punchy.

    I think I may be the guy who accidentally coined “Bernal Flats”, in pointing out that in no way should La Lengua be considered part of Bernal HEIGHTS, and that Bernal FLATS would at least make sense.

      (or, at least, Google doesn’t seem to have any results pre-dating my UptownAlmanac post in November 2010: )

      May also have been me — I have used “Bernal Flats” as an ironic counterpoint to the Bernal Heights land grab.

      Thanks to the North of Chavez extension, I still almost live in La Lengua. Too bad I’m not going to be in the neighborhood tonight.

    Will your bandolier be filled with tequila shots? Well, I am definitely going to the Rock Bar tonight and will be looking for Burrito Justice– though the whole inclusion of 24th/25th street as part of the Flats, oops La Lengua, is highly debatable.

      Re 26th/25th/24th: Historical precedence. Note the diagonal – it’s the old SPRR line.

      Also, no one else was using it.

      Re the bandolier, I was thinking taquitos.

    I didn’t realize that Juri Commons was the dividing line, guess I’m not quite south enough for La Lengua. At least I’m Lengua-adjacent, I can almost touch the greatness.

    The Bold Italic’s fetish about made up micro hoods with names conjured up by out of towners is getting to be a bit much.
