After their draw with South Africa, Mexico needed a win, and for more than a morale boost. As soon as the Mexico v. France match ended, the horns of celebration started up in the Mission. If you don't have a team yet, Mexico is a good choice if only for the sheer joy in the Mission when the team wins. The Mission was in full-on celebration mode for about an hour. Mexico's next match is against Uruguay on Tuesday, June 22, so call in to work with car trouble or food poisoning and find a bar open for the match at 7am PST. Mexico only needs a draw to advance.

Ozomatli, the nine person funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop/Spanish/English band from Los Angeles is headed north to play Slow Food Rocks this Saturday. Get excited to kick off the shoes and enjoy a wild performance on Fort Mason's Great Meadow - cause we’ll say one thing, this band makes you want to dance. We caught Ozomatli’s Raúl “El Bully” Pacheco on his cell, windows down, cruising in his freshly-purchased 1968 Mercedes Sedan up 101. Here’s what he had to say about Slow Food, SF burritos and his band’s dedication to social issues:
But first, in case you’re wondering:
