Who's on Third? A Bayview Celebration

In case you hadn't heard, there's a lot going on in the Bayview neighborhood lately. The Bold Italic just ran a nice roundup of what to do out there, and their guide comes just in time for next week's 3rd on Third art and music celebration. What started as a plan to toast the murals along the Third Street Corridor soon turned into a full-blown block party when the Stern Grove Festival joined the SF Arts and Public Utilities Commissions to launch "Grove on the Road."

Six murals by local artists will be unveiled, and Bayview merchants Auntie April's Chicken, Waffles, and Soul Food; Market on Third; and Radio Africa will host pop-up galleries. The Stern Grove pop-up stage at Mendell Plaza will feature local Bayview musicians like blues signer Pat Wilder, West African songstress Fely Tchaco, and harpist Destiny Muhammad. And there will be live painting, a Museum of the African Diaspora mini gallery, and an art-making zone for kids curated by 3.9 Art Collective.

Hop on the T, cross your fingers for some more good weather, and spend the night getting to know this super up-and-coming hood.

When: 5:30 - 9 p.m., Thurs. 6/20
Where: Third Street (between McKinnon and Quesada streets)
