A Parklet Grows on 22nd; $15 for 3 Courses at The Corner

New, 4 comments

THE MISSION - "Parklets" is a cute term for those parking spaces in front of businesses that have been converted into public spaces, like the one pictured here outside Mojo Cafe on Divisadero Street. And you'll be seeing more of them as the Small Business Committee continues to put them through trial periods throughout San Francisco. Another is set to debut this Friday in place of three parking spots in front of Revolution Cafe, Escape From New York Pizza and Lolo on 22nd St. in the Mission. Fairness of parklet placement is a bit of a controversy as they're a slam-dunk business booster no matter where they land, so we don't need to guess that the latest experiment will go well for Lolo and friends. These diminutive parks are especially popular on weekends, so 22nd street cruisers are advised to plan accordingly on Friday. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION EXTRA - The Corner will start serving lunch on Thursday of this week everyday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. There's a $15 prix fixe lunch option with lots of choices, and a regular a la carte menu, divided up for vegetarians, pescatarians, and carnivores. [EaterWire]
