So you want to talk about outdoor dining? Outdoor dining has been gaining popularity for many reasons these days. In my opinion, I hope it stays because SF deserves more of that outdoor dining experience. And I’m not the only one that thinks that way! Just this week SF Gate sang praise for parklet dining and how it’s “changed the face of SF for the better.”

With San Francisco being such a densely populated city, we all need to get out of our small apartments and catch a breath of fresh air. Not only do we need it, but our local bars and restaurants need it! Let’s keep supporting our local community as much as we can.
