The little neighborhood tucked behind the corner of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and Greenfield Avenue is known as Lincoln Park, and it will be getting an eating and drinking establishment thusly named. A license is pending with ABC and with a full restaurant ready to go after departed we may be enjoying another great place to wine and dine in downtown San Anselmo in the near future.
City Cycles Cycles Over to Corte Madera
San Anselmo has lost one of its bicycle shops to Corte Madera. Paradigm Cycles became last April, and their last day in downtown San Anselmo was Christmas Eve. They packed up shop after that and headed to the north end of Paradise Loop and can now be found at 13 San Clamente Drive. Today, Jan. 2, is the official ‘soft’ opening and we wish them the very best of luck in their new location.
We still have on San Anselmo Avenue in the center of town and further down the road just past the post office. (Plus and in Fairfax.) Did you know 3 Ring rents bicycles? I learned that last week and, with one of my New Year’s Resolutions to take up cycling again this year, I will definitely be checking them out.
Stucco Means Soon to Be
will have to change its name soon as the stucco is being finished this week on the exterior of the additional theater that will make it Fairfax "6." How many movies did you take in this winter holiday season? I wanted to see The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but couldn’t mess with the holiday cheery feeling and now I am not sure that it is how I want to start the new year. Here’s to hoping it stays in theaters for a while so I can find just the right moment to see it on the big screen.
Gawain Weaver has opened up an office at 18 Greenfield Ave. (where Green Fusion used to be), which will provide conservation and consultation services for historic and fine art photographs. Conservations treatments, collection surveys, preservation, assesments, disaster response and recover and onsite evaluation are just a few of the services that will be provided along with workshops of the identification and care of photographs.
What Do You Think
What do you think of the new bakery, at 101 San Anselmo Ave.? I personally am having a hard time (so there for I don't) purchasing $4 pastries that are burnt, quiche that is undercooked and charred at the same time, and I definitely can’t bring myself to pay $2.50 for three donut holes. The inside is absolutely beautiful, but the staff still hasn’t quite figured itself out and either the ovens need recalibration or they need a new baker. I certainly wish them the very best because we need new life down at that end of town and San Anselmo needs another great bakery. (I am a big fan of the but it could do with a face lift.) But I am not sure how it will be able to sustain itself if they keep baking the way they are.
In With Some New
There have been some . We wish all the new ventures the very best for 2012 and hope the remianing few vacancies scatered throughout the two towns will be filled in fast with just what we all need (and want!).
Happy New Year!
