My Mission Launch Party

Here’s the scoop on my big book project!

You’re invited to the launch party for Mission Loc@l’s My Mission, an oral history and map project illustrated by Rio Yañez

September 11th 7:00pm-11:00pm
Artillery Apparel & Gallery
2751 Mission St.

There will be Food, Drinks, and Music!

Plus! The event will also launch Mission Loc@l’s fly new t-shirts. After that you can buy shirts at Mission Skateboards on 24th Street, Artillery Apparel and Gallery on Mission Street or Mission Bikes on Valencia. Each shirt comes with a pin to mark your favorite Mission District hot spot. All proceeds will support future reporting projects. $15 each. Mission Loc@ls can order one with free delivery by e-mailing, subject line T-shirt.

Here’s a detail of the palatero’s cart from my cover to Mission Loc@l’s My Mission. Since the image will be printed relatively small I thought I’d share this detail so my Chola Pops and Hitachi Magic Wand can be appreciated.

  1. Rio this is so cool! So proud of you and all of your recent success! Are there “Eloteros” in the Mission? I am working on a new piece called “The Fat Free Elotera” -xo Maya
