Date and time set for coffee talk in Dolores Park

Rec and Park set the date for a discussion on food vendors in Dolores Park after they held off on a permit for a Blue Bottle coffee cart.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Sept. 27 at Dolores Park Church.

And even though the Blue Bottle permit was put on pause because it caught the attention of surrounding business owners and residents who opposed it, La Cocina is also supposed to park a cart on the infamous grassy knoll.

At the regular Recreation and Park Commission meeting Thursday, General Manager Phil Ginsburg made it a point to remind everyone that there have been “rolling” requests for proposals for food carts and other vendors in The City and open spaces for months.
