Best Silk Purse From A Sow's Ear

Miranda's Patio

With a stack of donated materials, a little bit of money, and a lot of hard work, patio proprietors Miranda Walton and Malik Khurshid took a vacant, weedy, and downright ugly Manor Road lot and turned it into a "Relax-Station" of the first order, serving burgers, burritos, and breakfast tacos from a small stand. Okay, so it's still hard by the smog and sounds of the street, and the shade trees are a little scarce, but it's a helluva lot better than what came before.
