Reader: Hipster Faux Gastropubs Are the New Cupcake Stores
More than forty new restaurants and bars opened in July -- and one of them, Provisions Chophaus & Drinkery, which opened in the busy block of 1500 Blake Street, barely lasted a week. "Unfortunately due to one bad apple we have to close the doors," said Provisions's Facebook posting announcing the end. But readers have other theories about what caused the demise of Provisions.
Yeah that has hipster tragedy written all over it. Horrible name.
You would be better off opening a Mexican restaurant on Rederal. That street has way too many places already.
