Any avid bowlers out there who have been pissed and sad about the impending demolition of the Presidio Bowling Center, take heart! KCBS reports that the National Park Service is weighing in about the Presidio Trust's plans to let Gap founder Donald Fisher build his contemporary art museum on the Bowling Center property, and they're none too happy about Landmarks Cinemas' plans to construct a movie theater in the Main Post area, or the Trust's plan for a restaurant/hotel there either.
Apparently, the "appearance" of this much construction on national park land violates the Presidio Trust Act -- despite all the construction that has already occurred with the building of LucasArts' Letterman Digital Arts Center. Anyhow, it's good news for bowlers and anyone wanting to get stoned and recite a few pages from The Big Lebowski. The Bowling Center's lease has been extended, month-to-month, until this whole mess is settled.
