The blighted, fenced off, constantly tagged corner of Hillhurst and Prospect has its public hearing tomorrow [PDF] for conversion into Yxta Restaurant. The owners of the property are asking for a conditional use to permit alcohol sales with seating for 56 persons indoors and 78 drunken persons outdoors. As previously mentioned, development of the site is sure to rouse the ire of locals due to parking deficiencies and the hours of operation (drinking until 2am!). We think Yxta may need a lot of help tomorrow. God speed, Yxta. We're pulling for you and your leaded-glass.
