Despite recent gloomy sounding news published by The Examiner, Mission Bowling Club co-owner Sommer Peterson says "everybody is lined up and ready to go" as they await the go ahead from the Building Department. Today the liquor license deposit went through with the ABC. The bowling lanes are being prefabbed in SoCal so they can be trucked up on semis and then fully constructed. Chef Anthony Myint continues to work on the menu (even though his other restaurant, Mission Chinese Food, is "super slammed" due to the recent Bon Appétit mention), and the logo is being finalized. "Every day someone walks by and says how excited they are for us to open," she adds, "community support has been great." Furthering the good vibes, their team came across a horseshoe the other day as they were trenching for plumbing.
For what it's worth, Peterson says her comments in The Examiner's piece were taken out of context. Her only intent was to serve as an example of what could potentially hurt a business. "We're meeting morning, noon and night," Peterson adds, "Our hard hat open house for investors is next week, and we're full steam ahead." Expected opening, as of now, is February of next year.
