Portola in the top eight of the SF Curbed neighborhood popularity contest


We at the Portola Planet love SFCurbed.com, we love Sally Kuchar and best of all we love pitching the Portola against other less worthy San Francisco ‘hoods. So we are delighted at the news that the Portola has made it through into the top 8 in a Curbed Cup neighborhood popularity contest, the winner of which will be crowned the San Francisco neighborhood of the year!

So we are asking all the loyal Planet followers to cast their vote. Click on this link and make sure we get through to the next round. Looking at the bracket above, it seems that we are likely to meet the popular Bernal Heights in the next round, a hard match to win. So it would be terrible, and very unfair if we suggested that people vote for the Tendernob in an attempt to avoid a district 9 showdown. We would never ask people to do such a thing, but if you did, well, on your own conscience be it.

    Besides winning the cup, and bringing some attention to our hood, what would this mean for the Portola? Would there be more $ coming in? Would Silver avenue get much needed garbage cans? Would we get some restaurants and shops on San Bruno that offer more variety and quality? What exactly does winning the Curbed Cup mean?

    Well, it’s a dead heat against Bernal. Vote soon to get us a bit more publicity here in the Portola.

    We made it to the finals! It’s Portola vs. Inner Sunset. Be sure to vote again before voting closes on Jan. 2!
