I Scream, You Scream…

Happy New Year! And what an interesting one it shall be with a new Governor, Lieutenant Governor (eventually), Insurance Commissioner, Attorney General, and House of Reps. Not to mention a new Interim Mayor and Board of Supes on their way in the coming weeks.

Anywho, as many of you may have already know and/or seen, after several vacant years, the old Cole Foods location at 815 Cole is due to become “The Ice Cream Bar: Soda Fountain and Creamery” at some point (soon?). Still no hints as to exactly what they’ll serve (aside from ice cream & soda, of course) or when they’ll open, but there is a newish “Notice of Public Hearing” posted in the window announcing a Planning Commission hearing on January 20th, starting at 1:30 PM, in Room 400 at City Hall.

According to the notice, they’ll be considering “An application for… A new full-service restaurant (Soda Fountain)”.  Does that mean they’ll be serving food as well, or is that just the type of permit usually required for a soda shop?

I’m guessing they’re unrelated to this Ice Cream Bar in The Philippines, however their turtle pie and mango float sure does look tasty.

Anyone make it to the open house back in November?

Some previous coverage here and here.

Update, 2/28/11: Turns out the Cole Valley Improvement Association featured a detailed article about the new Soda Fountain on Page 5 of their Winter 2010 Newsletter (pdf). Check it out to get all the deets.
