Better Uses For Alleys And Driveways

Look how simple it was to transform this space. Tables, chairs, umbrellas. A mostly unusable alley/driveway (Note the sign on the right.)  becomes an extension of the restaurant. This was later in the evening on a weekday. I'll have to go back during the weekend dinner hour to see if this "works." It sure seems like a great opportunity to bring a little life to an otherwise quiet block. (The other side of the street is usually active because of a bakery cafe with outdoor tables and chairs.) It could be an even more interesting space with lights or some other elements strung over the tables between the buildings.
