Big news from yesterday, apparently America’s Cup Team Artemis (Sweden) which has been headquartered in Alameda had a huge accident which resulted in the death of a crew member.
In more tragic news that I have been trying not to think about, the Alameda Community Learning Center is raising money for the family of one of the women who died in the limo fire earlier this week.
In more not depressing news, Paul’s Paella will be “popping-up” at Frog and Fiddle on Webster Street for, I guess, as long as the Frog and Fiddle is open. The restaurant is currently available for sale so if Paul’s Paella ends up being a success, he says that he might put an offer on the business himself.
Oh, and in other Webster Street news, Yummygurt (Yummigurt?) in the depressing Neptune Plaza has closed down and in its place is Webster Street first (and only?) bubble tea joint: Tmix. If you are into bubble tea, check them out.
Also, according to our stylist from ISalon, the business is moving from their waterlogged digs on one end of Park Street to the other end of Park in the mini mall near Dragon Rouge.
In other fire related Park Street business news, American Oak was not able to make its proposed opening date and the new date is still up in the air.
According to a commenter on an earlier post, Angela’s is changing its name to Cellar Door Cafe, and as she mentioned, everyone will still call it Angela’s.
And finally this weekend is the Park Street Spring Festival when I attempt to get my annual fix of funnel cake. Wish me luck that I avoid all other tempting treats and finally score some powdery goodness. And I just noticed that there is a Fleetwood Mac tribute band called “Fleetwood Mask” (har har) and another tribute band to the Police called “Stung”.
