Lack of sign boards in the Junction causing drive & walk bys?


The cities stringent sign board  rules and cumbersome methods of getting one and keeping one, thrusts an open walk and drive by hole in helping one sheepishly or purposely choose a place to eat and drink in the Junction.

These signs boards pictured above along King St west in the core give a quick way to get an idea of whats on todays menu. Other things such as the open roof top garden on one vendors establishment are made aware to one.  A bit of walking to and fro and up and down a street allows people to gain a wealth of food and drink knowledge upon which to make their eating and drinking choices.

So many communities have them little Italy, the Beaches, so sad we do not.
