As some of you may know, my good friends at Borderlands Books in San Francisco are working on opening a cafe next to their store. In order to do so they need to get planning permission, which is not always a straightforward proposition, city bureaucracies being what they are. So the application needs support. There’s a petition in the store that you can sign, but if you can’t get into San Francisco (and I know that Borderlands has fans all around the world) then you can help out by adding a comment below. And by directing your friends here. So…
We, the undersigned, enjoy visiting Borderlands Books when we are in San Francisco, and would be delighted if they had a cafe adjacent to the store. A cafe would enable the store to enhance its already excellent events program, and cement its reputation as one of the world’s premier independent specialist bookstores.

Update: The planning permission hearing is today (June 26th) so I’m closing off comments. I’ll let you know how it goes as soon as I hear from Alan.
