Worried that the upcoming closure of Dolores Park for renovations might stand in the way of your weekend drinking?

Well, you can always move to Brooklyn.

Because that's where a new bar named "Mission Dolores" recently opened.

Yes, near the trendy latest up-and-coming Brooklyn neighborhood you'll never convince friends from Manhattan to visit now has a little slice of San Francisco -- a mostly al fresco venue, with reclaimed wood everything.

Wonder if they ground bottle caps into the floors for authenticity? Maybe leave a little dog doo around? Or serve cannabis laced-truffles and street food snacks?

They certainly got one piece of the Dolores Park experience right: They've already started pissing off the neighbors.

Yes, New Yorkers have already co-opted our burritos, saag paneer pizza, fresh roasted coffee and many, many other delights of the San Francisco lifestyle.

But they can never take our better weather!
