Look out, Alcove, there's a new patio hotspot in the neighborhood.
The recently relocated Cap'n Cork
(perhaps riding high from that Beck shout out
) has set tables out on the sidewalk, along with a grill which, one presumes, is used to prepare all sorts of meat-related delicacies. Now, maybe the Carne Asada con Cap'n Cork
really rocks, but noxious fumes from the traffic on Hillhurst, the complete absence of shade trees or other vegetation, and the pesky L.A. Municipal Code prohibition against consuming alcoholic beverages on the premises of a liquor store would all seem to conspire against success.
Then again, maybe the combination of red meat, cigarettes, and booze will prove to be canny counter-programming against the clean-living namby-pambyism of Puran's and the Nature Mart.
