Presenting Your Stow Lake Boathouse & Cafe “Restoration Time” Menu: $3.25 Hot Dogs, $6.95 Sustainable Tuna Salads

At long last, it’s here. It’s the interim menu for our Stow Lake Boathouse & Cafe.

Is this menu too foo-foo yuppie for you? Is $3.25* too much for a Let’s Be Frank grass-fed beef** hot dog?

*Well, I’ll tell you, that’s cheaper than what the former tenant was charging. Here’s some more from the clinically-absurd SaveStowLake.org crowd:

“Seniors will no longer be able to gather freely at the boathouse. Prices will be more than doubled on all food items. Middle class and low-income families will be driven out of this spot that is designed to be for all…not just the wealthy.”

I’ll tell you, everything that the Save Stow Lake people have predicted has turned out to be shrill, alarmist bullcrap. JMO.

** These snappy dogs are loaded with flavor, not junk! Using premium cuts from cattle raised on pasture in California (naturally high in healthy Omega 3 fatty acids!) and organic spices, we’ve crafted a delicious dog that’s lower in fat, calories and sodium than conventional franks. No nitrites, nitrates, hormones, or antibiotics, ever.”

    Gather at the boat house? I never saw any “seniors” gathering at the boat house. From the looks of drawings posted at the boat house, there may eventually be some inside seating so that people _could_ actually gather there.

    I think they’re talking about the seniors who sat in the benches in front of the boathouse and at the tables. So not inside, but just outside, near the lake…

  3. sfmike says:

    The seniors are indeed on the outside benches, treating the place as if it belongs to them, which I suppose it does. What’s slightly unnerving is that they’re all speaking Russian and look like they’re out of some John Le Carre novel from the 1960s.

    Yes, tons of Russians / Eastern Europeans just walking around all the time. It’s their thing. I think they live in the Richmond…
