A “booooo!” to you! We hope you are enjoying this cooler beginning of autumn, gateway to all the big holidays.
The San Carlos Area Council did not meet in September due to the Yom Kippur holiday, but SCAC President Mark Schulze and I recently checked out a few very nice restaurants in surrounding neighborhoods.
At Tsuki Sushi on Lake Murray Boulevard we had some of the freshest and most amazing sashimi we have ever eaten, and we have eaten in Nagasaki, Japan. In the same mall, there is Pearl & Oyster (formerly Vine Cottage) where we have enjoyed a couple of their happy hours. The mussels in Thai coconut milk were outstanding.
Down the street, Signature Thai Cuisine has some of the best Thai food in San Diego. Mark loves the soft shell crab Pad Thai and I’m partial to the 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’s a new seafood restaurant called Fish Grub where the Schechuan Mandarin used to be. They have Taco Tuesdays with some of the best fish tacos I’ve eaten. Also, if you are a sports fan, that’s going to be a fun zone for you, as they stream the games on big monitors at the bar.
We learned on Nextdoor that our friendly neighborhood post office clerk, Mike Davis has passed away. Neighbor, Dee Sade, wrote:
“To all who went to San Carlos Post Office a few years ago, you should remember Mike Davis. He was the happy vibrant worker who made everyone laugh and smile for many years. If you had children they all knew Mike. Every day he would ask my son, ‘What did you learn today?’ and once he gave a positive answer, Mike gave him a piece of candy. There were many kids who loved to visit Mike. He became a friend and Mentor to my son and will be missed.”
RIP, Mike Davis and thank you for your service to our community.
Our SCAC Secretary, Ariel Voss, will be stepping down from her office to spend more time with her son. We would love to have a community member step up, join the board, and help to keep our Town Council vibrant.
We hope you will join us at our next Zoom meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 20, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. (Zoom link will be posted at Facebook page, facebook.com/sancarlosareacouncil) We will of course have our wonderful local representatives to give reports on what’s happening in the ‘hood. 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 spookiness, and keep it safe!
