Culture on the Cheap
Spotted On Graham Avenue: Ingenuity
If there is something this so-called “Brunch War” has taught me it is this: when there is revenue to be gained, local business owners can be downright inventive— be it by couching their argument as oppressing the brunching community (TIP: if you’re able to brunch— much less complain about the lack thereof— online— you are probably not oppressed) or creative license in regards to sidewalk cafe rules (Hear me, Nights and Weekends?*). Which brings me to the above photograph which was taken today.
Sage is permitted a sidewalk cafe with nine tables and eighteen tables. The work-around: installing eight picnic tables with two benches attached to each respectively. Thus we have eight tables and sixteen pieces of seating! Genius!!!
*Who have since, to their credit, removed these stools.
