Big Fat Balboa Hollow Holler

Join Us for Friday Afternoon BaHo Ho Hos!

Dear Friends and Neighbors

If you haven't realized it yet, most Friday's a group of BaHo-izens regularly meet at Cinderella's (Balboa and 6th) parklet from 5-7 pm.

People from all neighborhoods are welcome to join! Except, of course, Lone Mountaineers... those people are animals.

Tea, piroshki, kharcho soup, blini, house pickles, pelmeni, cakes, Fort Point and Lagunitas beer are avaible at reasonable (for San Francisco) costs. Alternative food and wine are right next door. Stylish Cinderella blankets are available for weather insurance.

See you there!

Fake News! NY Times Dares to Question BaHo Authenticity

Shout Out

In a sprawling "Technology" piece from August 2nd, The Times, we think, cast doubt on our burgeoning neightborhood, going so far as to label us "little-known"!

"LITTLE KNOWN!" we spit back at them in an all-caps Trumpian-style belch. For godsakes we have t-shirts!

Meanwhile, the article touched off a global media circus... Soon after the article was published we've been covered in the Spanish language press...

Balboa Hollow, un distrito de cincuenta manzanas al norte del Golden Gate Park, proclama en su sitio web que es un vecindario diferente.

and on the French interwebs...

Et certains quartiers peu connus de San Francisco, tel que Balboa Hollow, ont été marqués par Google Maps après des revendications régulières sur le web.

Overall, we must say we're rather shocked by the Times' performance here.

How the hell did they ever find us?


World Famous Artist to Paint BaHo Mural

This just in... LA's (Dodgers Suck) Eddy Lee has just started work on a new mural in the heart of Balboa Hollow. According to a profile in Jetset Times, "Eddy’s artwork is incredibly distinct and instantly recognizable. He paints women, all kinds of beautiful women, with acrylics on birch panel. He also paints portraits with mix media using coffee stains, ballpoint pen and acrylic."

If you hurry, you can watch the work unfold. If you're late, you can drink in its completed beauty.

The Mural Project is sponsored by a cool new Creole-flavored cafe in the heart of BaHo -- Tastebuds. The concept for the cafe is to create a space for all members of our community to gather, work, meet, eat and drink . . . whatever time of day or mood you might be in, Tastebuds is here for you!
