SF local introduces others to neighborhood

San Francisco local Maureen Futtner recently bought a home in a new building in the Mission, and organized a “Meet Your Neighborhood” event to bring together local businesses and residents on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m at 555 Barlett St. For more information, visit www.555bartlett.com.

What prompted you to put this event together? The Mission is such a special neighborhood that I love dearly, and I want to help introduce people to the unique gems that are right outside our doors here and support neighborhood businesses.

What businesses will be there? Local nonprofit City CarShare will be offering discounts and providing information, and Cole Hardware’s Home Improvement Expert will be on hand with information for smart and simple home projects. We’ll also be giving away gift certificates to local restaurants Front Porch and Rosamunde Sausage Grill.

Do you hope this type of gathering will catch on throughout The City? People are getting local, but this is getting hyper-local. I’ve gotten great feedback from a solid group of people who will be here on Saturday. People are excited to learn more about what is available in this little neighborhood.
