They've turned out in droves for the #MillerTakeover, a Slow Streets-styled, weekend-long closure of Miller Avenue between Throckmorton and Sunnyside avenues, and they've done the same for the #ThrockTakeover of a portion of Throckmorton Ave., including Bernard Street.
These socially distant-yet-vibrant events have featured Piazza D'Angelo, Urban Remedy, Gravity Tavern, Equator Coffees, Vasco and Peets's Coffee serving food and beverages at tables and chairs in the street and retailers like The Goods, Famous4, Sofia Jewelry, The Store and Wink Optics setting up racks and displays on the sidewalk as part of an outdoor market.
The events have also features strolling acoustic music as well as classical music performed by musicians affiliated with the Throckmorton Theatre.
In recent weeks, particularly with the extremely short-lived return of indoor dining, restaurants have been incredibly creative in turning outdoor public and private spaces into hubs for al fresco dining, with a heavy dose of support from the City of Mill Valley and the Mill Valley Chamber in creating an urgency-minded road map for using that outdoor space.
