Press Release: ‘Take Time for Taraval Bingo’ to Support Small Businesses


Take Time for Taraval Bingo, a brand-new game played along Taraval Street, is a new way for residents and neighbors to shop local along Taraval Street. Shoppers can collect game boards from participating businesses and receive unique stickers for their boards by making purchases. The goal of the game is to complete a row of three, four corners, or an entire board of nine, similar to bingo. Once complete, shoppers can then submit their game boards into raffles for prizes at dedicated raffle events.

Take Time for Taraval Bingo is part of the Open For Business Program, a program led by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), in partnership with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), and the People of Parkside Sunset (POPS) to support small businesses impacted by construction along Taraval Street during the L Taraval Improvement Project.
