Reader Molli Amara submitted some news via the Bernalwood hotline about a camera crew from the Style Network that’s shooting an episode of a TV show in our stylish neighborhood. (Luckily, no one told them about our unstylish dirt-fountain. Shhhhh!) For style-mavens, Molli also brings news of a yard sale that will take place at the same location this weekend. Read her full report for details…
As a rather new mom on leave of absence from work for a few months, I’ve had the opportunity to re-engage with our little village of Bernalwood in a more meaningful way — i.e. I get to be a weekday inhabitant of the neighborhood.
No longer waving goodbye early in the morning and returning at night — perhaps slipping in a quick end-of-the-day sunset walk to the top of Bernal Hill. As I try to escape my house at least once a day by traversing my least hilly route over to Cortland Ave., I have been getting to know the minutiae — where to avoid the most uneven pavement when I’m out with the stroller, which blocks have the new bright yellow lego-like corner ramps (what is up with the bizarre design of the one on the NE corner of Cortland and Anderson!?), waving at the old guys who hang out in their windows or garage doorways, and even recognizing some of the same dog people I see out around the same times. It’s a good day when I’ve at least made it out to The Good Life and maybe peeked in at the fun and lovely things over at Heartfelt.
Our little corner of Bernal is pretty quiet, immortalized this past December for its after dark loveliness. So there was a bit of excitement when we SouthEast slopers received a notice that the Style Network was taking over a bunch of our parking spaces to shoot a segment on my neighbor Deanne’s house.
She has a lot of cool stuff — she’s been doing live sound for shows from the Fillmore and seeing the world on tour, and she has the record collection to prove it. But as part of the show, they are going to make her get rid of a lot of it by having a big ol’ yard sale this weekend.
I don’t have a TV, but Deanne gave me a tour of her house this past Sunday, so I am curious, as a pack rat of sorts myself, to see what they will do to her house. Now my usually quiet walk up my steep hill is punctuated by the sound of generators and the sight of directors chairs and coolers on the corner that is now the craft service area.
Bernal may not have been given love by Soderbergh while he was in town the past few weeks, but at least we will be immortalized for our eclectic style.
