NVV Nov. 2010: We Read It So You Don't Have To

The Noe Valley Voice is published ten times a year and has been a neighborhood fixture since 1977. Here are highlights from the latest issue. Links are to items we've covered here on NVSF or outside sources as the Voice doesn't post stories online until mid-month.

November 2010

Front Page: Two parklets approved for 24th Street - one in front of Martha & Brothers, the other near Just for Fun; fairy doors on 24th Street; cell phone antennas on utility poles will get a hearing with the supes.

Features: Holiday recipes from local food purveyors and restaurateurs; an announcement of the "24 HoliDays on 24th Street" which will run Dec. 1-24 and include this year's Noel Stroll, Yule Rides, a menorah lighting, and Santa (you'll find a sort-of schedule here); Noe Valley music series leaves the Noe Valley Ministry and relocates to NOPA in February.

Cost of Living in Noe: Trophy homes are cold, condos are hot.

Traveling Voice: See pictures of the Voice schlepped to Turkey, Mumbai and Greece.

Rumors: Halloween on 24th Street - Noe Valley was ranked as the #1 destination in SF for trick-or-treating in 2010; the top costumes from the One Stop Party Shop on Church @ 28th were Lady Gaga, vampires...and beards (Go Giants!); the J-Church rail repairs = quieter trains on Church @ 30th - check out this cool time-lapse video of the whole thing; a recap of the color project on Duncan Street.

For someone who is nasty about our great neighborhood paper you sure rush out to get it and write about the day it comes out.

Let's also not lose sight of the fact that by helping people "not read it," you're taking away from circulation and advertising revenue. Way to go!

Or... if I see a tiny but incomplete snippet of an article I might be interested in, I would go out of my way to find a NVV hard copy so I could read it... driving circulation UP, not down.

Though I wonder why no copies West of Castro - Subs Inc, Peasant Pies, Cafe Ponte, Pasta Gina. (maybe they were there but all snatched up?)

Murphstahoe: you seem like the kind of guy who would go out of your way to find the NVV hard copy as soon as it hits 24th Street....just like the folk(s?)who anonymously publish this blog.

He is part of this blog. Can't you tell? He's always talking 'bout getting his nails done.
