The Mathematics of Love
Theatrical world premiere of Cherrie Moraga’s,The Mathematics of Love takes place in the lobby of the Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel at the turn into the 21st century. Peaches, an aging, mid-staged Alzheimers, Mexican woman awaits the arrival of her out-of-town son, “God.” Enter the 16th century Native female slave-turned-slaveholder, Malinche, whose satirical presence digs up the dirt of a once Tongva landscape, the nagging disquiet of those “Old San Gabriel Mission Days,” and an unreconciled story between mother and daughter.

Mission Merchants Association (MMA)

The Mission District continues to retain its longstanding rank as the #1 restaurant neighborhood in the Bay Area and perhaps the world. It has been a long run where no San Francisco neighborhood or even another SF Bay Area City has had more critically acclaimed restaurants than the historic Inner Mission. From a sunny day in Dolores Park to a gigantic street party, there is ALWAYS something happening in the Mission to get you out of your home or hotel room!
