News Flash: JoEllen Depakakibo, the proprietor and caffeinated creator of Pinhole Coffee at 231 Cortland, is officially tired of commuting to work from across town. So later this month, she’s moving to Bernal Heights. Pinhole has done much to create a stronger sense of community in western Cortlandia, so the addition of soon-to-be Neighbor JoEllen to our full-time Bernalese ranks will likely be a victory for the forces of better-togetherness.
Consistent with that, soon-to-be Neighbor JoEllen tells us about a new art installation now showing at Pinhole:
We have new artwork up by Bernal resident Charles Bierwirth. He’s been living in Bernal Heights since the late 1980’s, doing commissions in Fine Art paintings and mural work. He’s been painting on canvas tarpaulins since graduate school in the late 1970’s, when he received his Masters Degree in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. He recently just finished a piece on the San Francisco icons, The Brown Twins.
Charles Bierwirth’s piece “Blau Haus” will be on display until July at Pinhole Coffee.

JoEllen, Welcome to the neighborhood. I’ve been hearing great things about you and your coffee shop. Hope to get there soon.
Welcome JoEllen! Love the Bernal History event you posted last month!
I was worried that another coffee shop wouldn’t survive the competition but it’s a fun place that makes great espresso drinks and they do seem to have a steady flow of customers.
Wishing them luck
Pinhole has such a welcoming vibe. I love the wood and the natural light.
