The one element of Mexican authenticity the Little Chihuahua seems to lack is the presence of actual Mexicans. The crowd is heavily Anglo, and somewhere in this detail is a story about a hipster neighborhood that simultaneously resembles and differs from the city's great hipster neighborhood — the hipster superpower — the Mission. It might also help explain why the Little Chihuahua will soon be expanding, not to 22nd and South Van Ness streets but to 24th and Castro streets — the heart of Noe Valley. That's as dog-friendly a neighborhood as there is in this town. *

Hipsters, please follow Little Chihuahua's lead, and get the F out of my once hipster free hood.

I wholeheartedly concur with Guest's gentle demand. I grew up in this hood and am beyond sick of the faux nonconformists on their fixed gears who think they're so hip eating at this and ike's holes.
