Mission Bowling Club and the return of Mission Burger

I’m so excited, I’m having a hard time writing this post. Can’t think straight. Here’s the deal: Our buddy Chef Anthony Myint just told us he’s doing the food for the boutique bowling alley thing we heard about last month.

It’s called Mission Bowling Club, and it sounds pretty rad. More importantly, the menu will include the MISSION BURGER — that storied mass of heaven incarnate we all miss so much. And get this: VEGAN BURGER TOO. That’s right.

Phewf. I’m gonna need a nap just thinking about this. Can’t wait! Thanks, Anthony!

    But is the bowling candlepin or big-ball? The people demand details!

    I dunno. Only six lanes? For being the only bowling alley within miles? I have a feeling it’s going to be like brunch at Boogaloo’s — a good idea in theory, but you can’t ever go there unless you feel like waiting 3 hours. Their heart’s in the right place, though. I’d definitely go there to get Mission Burger’s vegan burger, which is AMAZING. Dropping that from their menu was the most idiotic thing Mission Burger ever did, but I digress…

      I have the felling that like many other awesome places in the Mission, if you go on a Wednesday night or something there will be very little wait. But if you go on Friday or Saturday night, it will be a shit-show.

      Hopefully they’ll open right at 5 or so, cause some happy hour bowling/burgers/beers sounds like the bomb and maybe not as crowded.

        Ugh, way to read the whole post, TK. Now I see it will, in fact, be open at 5. So there you go! Get there right at 5.

    I am so hungry right now.

  5. el jeffe says:

    It looks just like The Gutter in Brooklyn. But with better food, maybe. Hopefully the bowling lanes / balls / equipment aren’t all worn out and broken.

    Mon-Fri 5:00pm to 2:00am!

  7. SCUM says:

    Are vegans even strong enough to lift and throw a real bowling ball?

  8. SCUM says:

    Shit, I just found out it will be half a block from my house. More fucking hipsters and yuppies in my hood. Enjoy the crackheads, hookers and muggings losers.
