Now brought to you by Scout Magazine.
In this emergency episode, we brought on two of the owners of Mount Pleasant’s Como Taperia, Shaun Layton and Frankie Harrington to discuss all the hoopla surrounding their patio expansion. In a desperate Hail Mary attempt to garner some attention to their plight, they wrote a detailed Instagram post of why they had been turned down by the city of Vancouver.
Surprisingly for them, this action received an enormous amount of anger and support from their supporters. This reaction eventually got the city’s attention, where a swift meeting was set up to discuss their situation.
This whirlwind of events eventually garnered them what they were looking for. A summer patio license is on the way. Yeah!!
We hope you enjoy this episode as Shaun and Frankie detail all these events with much candor and honesty. It’s a lesson to never give up.
**Como Taperia is a beautiful Spanish Tapas Bar on Main Street. Go for the food but stay for the Sherry and Cocktails. Patio should be up in the coming weeks.
