Love the music today!

I was going to snag the beer fridge, but a bunch of police officers beat me to it.

No?  Poor taste?

I for one welcome the investigation.  I hope the DOJ can assist APD in better training their officers to approach situations without force.

Wow, Fajitaville. A blast from the past. I will check out the new joint for sure.

I saw that Rocka Taco place in the throes of opening last month.  Looked kind of fun.  I hope it is better than Zacateca.  It will certainly be cheaper...

Hey - the El Rey Theatre got sold! I hope the new owners improve the seating - but it was always a good place to see (infrequent) shows...  Lura comes to mind

shotsie: it's an extended lease, not a sale, but it sounds like the new operators have a lot of leeway to make improvements. The architects handling the remodel have done a lot of nice high-profile stuff...

My new favorite 'Tako' place.

Phil, wasn't Mark Baker a frequent visitor to DCF?  I wonder if we could goad him back here to discuss his plans for the facility.

It'd sure be nice if they could do something with the burned-out shell of the Puccini Golden West Saloon.

Did somebody call?  Hi guys.  As most of you know, El Rey is getting some improvements, most of which are code upgrades improving life safety, exiting, and toilet room capacity.  These upgrades will allow El Rey to increase the occupancy from approximately 700 to approximately 1300.  This will allow the venue to attract bigger acts.  The management plans to book a real variety of shows from hip hop to country to Mexican and indie.  (I've heard talk of Steve O doing a comedy show there for instance.)  Another difference is that the El Rey will be open as a dance club when not booked. The Golden West, which unfortunately was totally lost in the fire, will become an outdoor patio in phase 2.
