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

The Noe Valley Voice is published ten times a year, and while we love the idea -- it's pretty lightweight. Here's everything you want to know from the latest issue.

December 2008 / January 2009
  • Front Page: Noe Valley Farmer's Market 5 years strong; founders/volunteers still lament Real Foods.
  • Obits: Historian Paul Kantus; Architect Albert Lanier.
  • Planned: Bell Market closes on Valentine's Day, Whole Foods takes over March 1st and plans to be open by September - expect community meetings with the NVMPA and Friends of Noe Valley; FoNV is also meeting with the City to replace the individual news boxes on 24th St with "news-rack pedestals;" Streetlight Record's space may be turning into a clothing retailer.
  • Opening: Kookez is slated to become City Grill, according to Stefano Coppola (Lupa), and promises "classic American fare" by mid-December; Just Awesome Games is opening in mid-December at 816 Diamond St.
  • Open: Jeff & Eddie's Henry's Hunan; Cary Lane; Jewelry Box.
  • Closing: Glare.
  • Events: Noel Stroll - Dec 13
  • Charity: Drop off toys at Hill & Co; SF Food Bank (PDF) has no drop-off locations in Noe Valley. The SF Food Bank has three year-round drop off locations in Noe Valley: Terra Mia, Bell Market and Noe Valley Ministry. More info here. (Our mistake, not the NVV's.)
  • Cost of living in Noe: single-family residences unchanged year-on-year; condos up. And don't forget the new record $5.8M SFR. Rent: slowly increasing.
  • Award: Noe Valley Association: "Best Community Benefit District" in San Francisco.
  • News of the Weird: John Adams has been reincarnated as NV resident Walter Semkiw (really - there's a full page about it).

Sorry to be so "unruly" but it looks like you're the lightweights, ripping off the Voice without even giving the proper references to the current, whoever you are, must have read the Rumors column carefully since all the news their seems fit to print.

I agree completely. pretending to condense the NVV to 60 seconds is silly and immature.

what's your point?

And one more thing: remaining anonymous as the so called editors of this little ratty blog is..well..cowardly and stupid.

I think it's funny that the person criticizing the editors of the blog for being anonymous...POSTED ANONYMOUSLY.

Goose/gander, problem, anyone?

I would be really disheartened to see Whole Wallet come in here. We should lobby Bi-Rite market instead.

We don't need more traffic in here!
