Tidbits: Lime Closes, Lefty's Fresh Spin

One of the city’s biggest get-you-trashed brunch locations is no more: ~LIME~ in the Castro has closed shop. Grub Street reports San Francisco’s first gay sports bar will be moving in (the business will be under new ownership). 2247 Market St. at Sanchez.

Six months ago, tablehopper intern Rebecca Kinney noticed a petition in support of converting the former Haz Liquors on Polk and Pine into a Lefty O’Doul’s Express. I was never able to get any answers from the Lefty O’Doul’s folks, but now The Tenderlife blog has this update from the Lower Polk Neighbors meeting: “DBA ~LEFTY’S FRESH SPIN~ will be operating a Hof Brau style [sic] quick serve eatery. Food will consist of soup, salad, sandwiches and operate with a type 41 beer and wine license which requires food sales during all hours of operation. Per Lower Polk Neighbors request, Lefty’s has agreed with operating restrictions and will close at 12 am.” Looks like the neighborhood is in favor of it, so stand by for more. 1401 Polk St. at Pine.
