Spent day trekking over and across San Francisco by foot and MUNI looking for a coin laundry. I Yelped at home before heading out. Tons of Bubbles and Get the Funk Out in Western Addition/NOPA, Little Hollywood on Market and Octavia, Fiesta and The Wash Quarters in the Mission, Star Wash in the Castro… The irony was that I had decided to make a film… about laundromats.
I wanted to hit Parkside and Potrero Hill as well because I’d been told that these two neighbourhoods were more ethnically and socio-economically diverse, but without a car I had to start at the more central areas.
Get the Funk Out! had the better sofa, keyboard and Dr Seuss children’s area. Little Hollywood Laundrette had an Art Deco entrance and a wrap-around floor-to ceiling “Golden Age of Cinema”-themed mural. Guess which one I picked?
