Just in time for Picnic Day and the 20th annual ceramics conference, John Natsoulas Gallery opened a cafe on April 17. The coffeehouse, at First and F streets, takes over part of the galleryÕs gift shop space.

It offers all organic and some free trade coffee, as well as pastries and other snacks. The cafe added a nice wood deck, allowing outdoor seating and a view of DavisÕ gateway.

The annual California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art, which started Friday and concludes today, is the galleryÕs biggest event of the year.

Some E Street Plaza tenants are playing musical chairs.

LuciÕs Salon is moving next door, into the old Super Suppers spot.

Luci Seed, who owns the business with her husband, Phillip, said the move should be complete by July 1, if not sooner. The current shop is at 210 E St. The new street number will be 212. Phillip, a general contractor, is making the preparations.

Balance Point Pilates Studio will fill the salonÕs old space. ItÕs still keeping its second-story studio in the Brinley Building. It is just adding more space for classes, owner Barbara Zaro said.

The expansion, which will be complete later this summer, will help the studio offer more 30-minute mat classes and prop classes. The newest prop is the Pilates Exo Chair, which all of Balance PointÕs instructors have been trained to use. Zaro said it is the only studio to offer the apparatus in Davis.

On the other side of that building, at the corner of Second and F streets, Outdoor Davis may be ready by mid-May to reopen in the former SamiraÕs spot, said Rae McDaniel, office manager at Brinley Properties.

Davis Electric CarsÕ last day of business was Thursday. Its owners plan to relocate somewhere in Sacramento, but do not yet have a site, employee Harman Bains said.

The dealership, at 1605 Second St. in Davis, sells ZAP, ZENN and American Custom Golf cars and electric scooters.

As Julie Rooney mentioned in her recent Enterprise story, DISC is moving to Woodland this summer. Two longtime employees, Randy Nunes and Ian Steigler, have formed Norcal Indoor Sports, which they hope to open in June in a warehouse on the north edge of Woodland. Its new address will be 1460 Tanforan Ave.

DavisÕ indoor inline skating center at 2801 Second St. nearly closed in 2006, but was leased by a group of hockey enthusiasts. The buildingÕs owners Ñ Jeff, Sam and Gwen Harrison Ñ are looking to lease the DISC part of the building, the front of which houses the Explorit Science Center.

The Woodland business, awaiting a conditional use permit from the city, will be used for sports like volleyball as well as inline skating and hockey. Skating lessons and birthday parties are planned, with possible additions of a bounce house and inside skateboard park. The Friday night family skate will not continue, however.

Executive Cleaners in West Davis has opened a second store, this one near the Davis Food Co-op, at 638 G St. The Òeco-friendlyÓ cleaner is owned by Lydia Chu.

It offers alterations and laundry services, as well as traditional dry cleaning. Specialties include leather, wedding gowns, comforters and drapes. For information, call (530) 758-2135.
