Park & Sixth – Outdoor seating!

Hooray for Outdoor Seating!

Now you can eat the tasty food on the spot and Park & Sixth Comfort Food!

They informed me today (as I ordered the always delicious “All Star” sandwich) that outdoor seating was going to start tomorrow – and I made this picture for use tomorrow…

However, they already set some chairs and tables up after I left, saying “It’s a start!”

More tables and chairs to come – I think they have authorization to put up to six.

Poor Oscar. My short hair dog loves this heat.

Umbrellas. Shade would be great. Maybe a few umbrellas in earthy tones to coordinate with the awning. Maybe a little orange, too (I like orange).

Those planters that hook onto the fence are expensive. A potted plant or two would be nice, though :). You can put them together yourself, easily. A big flower plant or tree by the door would be nice.

Very nice, mooshu. Orange is my favorite color. And umbrellas would be great; I see you’ve unleashed your inner Martha as well! Speaking of umbrellas, we just bought a tiki umbrella for our patio table- at a Rite Aid, of all places (in Wildwood, NJ)! The entire thing is layers of (fake) raffia on the outside– very funny. And I ordered a retro-pattern vinyl table-cloth (cocktail glasses and flowers on an orange background)on eBay, it just came by mail today, has a ZIPPER so you can get it on around the umbrella (who knew such things existed?) Anyway, courtesy of the umbrella, the tablecloth, some string lights, and hot pink nylon lanterns, we’ve got a retro, tiki-vibe going on over here. So it really takes very little to dress up a plain outdoor space… I hope Park & Sixth does something with theirs, it’s got a lot of potential! I know those planters aren’t super cheap, but I’d go for them anyway. I like what the restaurant on the corner of Willow & 10th has done with their outdoor eating space– they have beautiful hanging flower planters mounted to poles at their fence, I think (?). I have to look more closely next time, but whatever they’ve done, it’s very attractive… makes you want to sit down and ask for a menu! In response to mooshu who said: Umbrellas. Shade would be great.

If the owners read 411, here’s some unsolicited design advice to dress up the outdoor seating area for not much $, make it more inviting, attract more customers.

Get a bunch of the long, trough-type hanging planters filled with flowers, and install them on the fence, front and sides with the planters facing in, rather than the street side. Or whichever way you like, on all 3 runs of fence. Add a few potted small trees (like the ones at Home Depot- topiary, for example) flanking the entrance and along the front, next to benches, etc. Finally, if you like, outdoor rugs- Pier 1 has some very nice ones- for under under the tables on each side of the entrance.

OK, so nobody asked. But some plants, flowers, a little color, would warm it up.

Oscar, tell your dad to keep you on the shady side of the street.
