BevMo opening and the Wagon Wheel being bulldozed. *sigh*

I'll be over there tonight and double check the opening date. We'll meet in the rum aisle.

The Wagon Wheel was bulldozed?

Wow! It has been a long time since I have been up that way.

Wagon Wheel was bulldozed this week. Just a big pile of rubble now. Some of the brick fireplaces are still standing. If anyone wants to get together Friday (I am off work) let us know.

Ron,

Sad to hear about the Wagon Wheel, I admired it just a few weeks ago as I drove south.




Dang, I can't make Friday, its opening day of Lingcod season and I am going off-shore fishing. Maybe next time.

Yep. They bulldozed the Wagon Wheel. We might be able to liberate a few actual wagon wheels or pieces of wagon wheels. But otherwise it's now a big pile of rubble. The neon signs are still there and I think (hope) that someone has claimed them.

So do we want to meet at BevMo on Friday at--say--6. Or wait until Saturday?

Anybody go to the new place in Thousand Oaks?

Edited to add:

There are some great oak shelve available at Borders in the Esplanade. Perfect for mug display. They're 7.5' X 3' X 7" deep. They're $48 out the door. The store is picked clean and the deals on books and such aren't great. But you might want to check out the shelving.

In last weeks paper the San Buenaventura conservancy guy said "demolition may not be eminent" but the city of Oxnard gave the developers the go ahead and they wasted no time. Oxnard is famous for taking the money & running. Still have not seen the results of the DA & FBI raid here... http://www.vcstar.com/news/2010/aug/13/da-serves-search-warrant-at-oxnard-city-hall/ Can't wait til they start tearing down the old Starbucks & WalMarts for something newer. Golf Courses are a waste of Real Estate too.....more condos. It will be so nice when I can go to any town in America and feel like I am in my town. I will never have to travel....think of all the money I will save!

We have been to Total Wine & More in Thousand Oaks.....just like BevMo but a litter bigger with a few different things. They did have Orange Curacao from Curacao (22.99) and good prices on Zaya (23.99) and Mount Gay Extra Old (34.99) but not the selection of a Hi Times or Wine & Liquor Depot (no Demarara). Worth checking out.

Looks like not a lot of enthusiasm for a local get together but we will be home (taking care of Mom post surgery). Friday is still open and we would also entertain Saturday if that works better (we already have a couple of TCers committed for that day) so let us know what works for you so we can plan accordingly......no band, just good weather and a Drifter's Reef is waiting....I will probably BBQ something. PM for address.

We may not have our party this year so ....

Bongo, would have contacted you, would never miss a chance to be at your place, we were all passing around that terrible stomach flu. Figured you would rather pass... Thanks, be there next time. (Mom doing okay I hope)

While waiting for Ventiki to open I would recommend these local events...

This weekend with The Blasters, Robert Gordon, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) and the Dead Presidents, Junior Brown, and many more....

http://www.roadshowrevival.com/

This is a great small venue at a Mexican Restaurant downtown that features Blues and R & B almost every Friday night. Next week has Deke Dickerson and the Ecco-Fonics!

Next month is the long awaited turn of the Surf Rodeo...

I'm disappointed to miss this, but I'm playing a gypsy gig in Simi today. Love The Blasters, and a fan of Robert Gordon from the Danny Gatton Humbler years. Junior puts on a good show - last saw him at the Santa Monica Pier with James Intveld.

Apparently some bar is opening in the Ventura. There is a separate thread. The establishment is known as "Ventiki". You have no excuses now.
