1. One of the oldest houses in the Park Cities, 4704 St. John’s Drive, came down into a pile of 100-year-old boards and bricks Monday. Word on the street is that the owner of the property, who also owns 4700 St. John’s, plans to make a bigger yard. A bigger, $2.5 million yard.
2. Those hoping to catch a meal at Trece may have to wait a while. Seems like owner Robert Colombo decided to shut the restaurant down for August, and maybe permanently.
“Our lease is up in October or November, they’re going to bulldoze that building,” he said, according to Teresa Gubbins over at Pegasus News. “The plan is to bulldoze Little Katana and Sur La Table and build a Post/Gables type residential building — bad for Trece but good for [sibling restaurant] Villa-O.”
So maybe Little Katana will be gone, too? Thoughts?
3. Former Scots phenom Clayton Kershaw went for his 13th win of the season last night against division rival San Diego. If Kershaw won (note to self: check in morning and see if Kershaw won) He won! His 13th victory of the season matches a career high, and it’s only August 2.
Sports editor Chuck Cox spoke to Kershaw while he was on vacation in San Francisco last week (Chuck’s vacations always seems to be of the working/sports variety); check out the story in Friday’s Park Cities People.
