Major Sad Face: Rioters Vandalize Four Barrel, Locanda, & More On Valencia Street

Valencia Street Riots
Well, this is a pretty crappy way to start off the month. Last night, a group of masked marchers charged down the vibrant restaurant and shopping district that is Valencia Street, vandalizing local businesses and cars.
Mission Mission has the most thorough report on the aftermath, which includes a paint-balled Four Barrel, smashed windows at Artzone 4 Gallery and Weston Wear, and lots more unnecessary and sad stuff.
One witness describes his experience, dining at Locanda with his girlfriend when a band of thugs attempted to smash in the restaurant's windows:
Another business that was less fortunate in the window department, was clothing shop Weston Wear, whose owner Bridget Moore spoke with us this morning.
Moore says Delfina, Farina, Tartine Bakery, Therapy, and TACA Airlines also reported damage from the senseless and destructive event. If you care to see fuzzy footage of it all, here's a video. In the meantime, visit these local businesses and help them get back on their feet.
