On the left: Vinoteca on Union; On the right: Pompei on California/Larkin
Thanks to a quick-snapping tipster, we have visual (and live!) evidence of a new paint job underway at Ms. Luisa Hanson's colony on the corner of California and Larkin, and well, it would appear that the leftover paint from her concurrent project on Union Street—which got a paint job earlier this month—is being put to good use. Along with the Barleycorn next door, the former Front Room space is still in the midst of heavy construction, but Vinoteca (the space on Union) is more polished, so the jury's still out to see which one arrives first. Getting back to the proliferation of recycled red paint, it's a bit like the British Empire's use of red to mark its colonies on old maps, no?
