Now the restaurant community is set to take the next big leap in that effort, starting downtown with a takeover of Miller Avenue between Throckmorton and Sunnyside avenues from Friday, July 10 at 4pm through Sunday, July 12 at 9pm. That one-block stretch of Miller will be blocked off for that duration, with Piazza D'Angelo, Urban Remedy and likely others all setting up tables and chairs in the street for service and dining under the stars. Retailers will be invited to set up racks on the sidewalk as part of an outdoor market.
Watch this space for many more details on the way. As you can imagine, events like these in the midst of a pandemic have a tendency to create all-hands-on-deck, race-to-the-finish line efforts.
We hope this will be the first of many Miller Ave. Takeovers throughout the summer and fall.
