A “booooon!” for you! We hope you enjoy this cooler start to fall, the gateway to all major vacations.
The San Carlos Regional Council did not meet in September due to the Yom Kippur holiday, but SCAC President Mark Schulze and I recently visited some great restaurants in the surrounding neighborhoods.
At Tsuki Sushi on Lake Murray Boulevard, we had some of the freshest and most amazing sashimi we’ve ever eaten, and we ate in Nagasaki, Japan. In the same mall there is Pearl & Oyster (formerly Vine Cottage) where we enjoyed a few happy hours. The Thai coconut milk mussels were outstanding.
Down the street, Signature Thai Cuisine offers some of the best Thai food in San Diego. Mark loves Soft Shell Crab Pad Thai and I have a thing for Tom Yum Coconut Milk Soup. I was also energized by a Thai iced tea served in such a large container that I took the rest “to go”.
In Grantville, there is a new seafood restaurant called Fish Grub where the Schechuan Mandarin was located. They have Taco Tuesdays with some of the best fish tacos I’ve eaten. Also, if you are a sports fan this will be a fun zone for you as they show the matches on big screens at the bar.
We learned on Nextdoor that our friendly neighborhood post office worker, Mike Davis, has passed away. The neighbor, Dee Sade, wrote:
“To anyone who visited the San Carlos Post Office a few years ago, you should remember Mike Davis. He was the cheerful, dynamic worker who kept everyone laughing and smiling for many years. If you had kids, they all knew Mike. Every day he would ask my son, “What did you learn today? and once he gave a positive response, Mike gave him a candy. There were a lot of kids who liked to visit Mike. He has become a friend and mentor to my son and he will be missed.
RIP, Mike Davis and thank you for your service to our community.
Our SCAC secretary, Ariel Voss, will be leaving his office to spend more time with his son. We would love to have a member of the community join the board and help keep our city council vibrant.
We hope you will join us at our next Zoom meeting on Wednesday, October 20, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Zoom link will be posted on the Facebook page, facebook.com/sancarlosareacouncil) We will of course have our wonderful representatives locals to give reports on what is happening in the neighborhood. And our guest speaker, Dr. Caitriona Tilden, Ph.D., will talk about depression and suicide prevention, very poignant and necessary topics in today’s world.
Happy Halloween, everyone! Enjoy the dread and keep it safe!
