To show gratitude for the store’s loyal customer base and support local writers, Bookshop West Portal is kicking off its weekend live-reading series Sunday, March 6, which will run until the end of the month.
The Duggan family, who own two Original Joe's locations in San Francisco and Daly City and Little Original Joe's, which opened late last year in West Portal, are preparing to open another restaurant in their home neighborhood — but this time it will be Mexican-American food, instead of Italian-American.
A couple more additions to the late summer Muni service reinstatements, and the M-Ocean View gets its trains back, and the 31-Balboa returns on a limited route.
The long-awaited West Portal spinoff of Original Joe's, dubbed Little Original Joe's, opened Monday in the space formerly occupied by Paradise Pizza at 393 West Portal Avenue. And unlike the classic, Italian American temples of red sauce that the Duggan family operates in North Beach and Daly City, Little Original Joe's actually serves pizza, as well as pastas and parmigianas.
