Ike’s sandwiches in the Castro is being evicted by court order on August 26th. A victim of its own success, the sandwich shop that operates in a tiny space sublet from Daimaru Sushi on 17th Street at Sanchez employs an incredible 50 people. Given how businesses in this city are hurting due to the economy, the fact that a few neighbors in a commercial zone can get Ike’s closed just doesn’t make sense.
Ike’s adjusted business hours to open later and close earlier, to no avail.
Me? I never got a sandwich there – it is too popular. I hate waiting in lines 🙂
