Tonight: Public House/Mijita Soft-Opens for Media and Industry
Unless you wear chef pants to work or have some connection to media old or new, you won't be able to witness tonight's launch party for Public House/Mijita at AT&T Park. The official public opening for Traci Des Jardins' double-in-the-bubble ballpark eateries is April 9, date of the Giants' home opener. This morning, workers were putting last-minute touches on the space formerly known as Acme Chophouse.
J. Birdsall The mighty keg wall at Public House.
The focal point of Public House: Its mighty keg wall, which by our count holds nearly 80 barrels of suds. Indeed, craft brews are the attraction Des Jardins' version of the sports bar is hoping to get beer lovers to show up even on non-game nights (certified cicerone Eric Cripe served as beer consultant). Public House director of operations John Epperheimer previously told us there'd be 24 beers on tap, with 80 percent of total suds offerings being local.
By the way, if we know anything about media folk, we have a pretty good feeling a lot of that beer will get sucked down tonight.
