This week brings updates on the Mission Bowling Club (3176 17th Street) story, where Mini Bar barmaids Sommer Peterson and Molly Bradshaw are teaming up with Commonwealth/Mission Street Food's Anthony Myint to bring what will surely be the hippest and hottest opening in the Mission of early 2012. They've just launched a crowd-funding campaign via Indie Go Go, where they're trying to raise $12,000 in order to transform the rough concrete frontage of their warehouse space by adding "parking for 10 to 20 bikes, a vertical garden, a perimeter gate and patio enclosure, and comfortable outdoor patio furniture."
Myint tells SFoodie, "The food can be loosely described as technique-driven comfort food, and will resemble the kind of food served at Mission Street Food in spirit if not actual items." He cites the much loved, Heston Blumenthal-inspired Mission Burger (formerly available on a pop-up basis at Duc Loi market) as an example.
Last month we heard that the Board of Supervisors was fully in support of making a zoning variance and extending liquor licenses to both Mission Bowling and the Roxie Cinema. Now it appears that is going forward as well.
SFoodie says they're aiming for a February opening for the six-lane bowling alley-cum-lounge/restaurant, but the Indie Go Go page says, more conservatively, "spring," so we'll go with that. Hipsters are already polishing the bowling shoes they already own, we're certain of that.
