The Yard at Mission Bay is FINALLY open!!! The B Man and I had to go and check out the new neighborhood gem in Mission Bay. The all year-round pop up venue called The Yards has opened behind AT&T Park. Anchor Brewing beer is the anchor (ha ha, the puns) to the area and there are many food trucks and retail stores in the small area. Much like that at Hayes Valley, this urban park is all reused shipping containers.
Interesting that they took away 76 parking spots in an already small parking area to build this venue, but we all know how much more $$$$ they'll get here rather than in parking. Between the beers, food trucks, shopping and weekly food markets, there's much to explore at the Yard. There's even free yoga on Saturday & Sunday from 10am-11am, I'll have to check it out! I see spending a lot of time here in the near future....
What you see when you come around the corner over the bridge.
I'm always intrigued by these little machines. They measure how many plastic bottles have been saved over time by simply reusing other water bottles. The sun was shining and I was thirsty, so I asked for a reusable plastic cup to fill up.
The sun was shining and it was a perfect day to be outside!
Not sure who chose that color scheme for the logo, but it does look good against the grey paint.
Perfect spot for beers with friends!
