- 10/27/11 Farewell Doggie Diner - posted by Frank Dunnigan
posted by Frank Dunnigan
Demolition began yesterday on the old Doggie Diner at the NE corner of 46th Avenue & Sloat (though the restored Doggie head remains safely on display just a block east in the center divide at 45th & Sloat). The adjacent Sloat Garden Center plans to expand into the space occupied by the old Dog.
Talking to the neighbors, I learned that the old Roberts at the Beach Motel, just across the street, is involved in bankruptcy proceedings, and has been operating on a month-to-month basis for some time now. The bank that owns it is expected to proceed with demolition of that entire block sometime next year, which will open up a big chunk of Sunset real estate.
