New Bowling Alley in the Mission?
So Eater SF rumors. Even if it is only half as awesome as their rendering, I’m in:
The Mission: Keep in mind that this is some good ol’ fashioned unconfirmed rumormongering at its very finest, but it would appear that a new bowling alley could be en route for the Mission. It would be on the small side (only six lanes or so) and a group is currently trying to get all the paperwork together. The biggest obstacle to be overcome is the ABC and the maze that is liquor licensing, which is tricky for places like bowling alleys. Add in the current ABC crackdown surrounding clubs and the requirements for food sales, and things get even more dicey.
Hey, maybe they can provide safe haven for oppressed food carts.
Per historical precedent, we had a bowling alley in La Lengua in 1915 per this Sanborn map — it was near the current location of the Mission Safeway (behind what is now the Alteña taqueria). So we get one again by default, no?
(That’s 29th st on top and 30th at the bottom. Safeway replaced the Lyceum Theater in the 1950s.)
