You can get flu vaccine … when pigs fly

Special to The Enterprise IÕm a high-risk shopper in a desperate market, but alas, I canÕt find what I need. ItÕs not even available at our new Target. ThatÕs right, folks. If you want the swine flu vaccine (letÕs call a pig, a pig), it appears youÕre out of luck for the time being, unless […]

Davis Ace is always the place

Special to The Enterprise The year was 2002. While driving down Mace Boulevard behind the semi loaded with all my earthly belongings, I realized I forgot to make a covert pit stop in West Sacramento for a quickie divorce from my unmentionables: nonstick pans Ñ the kind we ban here in Davis. The border patrol […]

Supporting downtown eases weekend alone

Enterprise columnist Dear Darling, By the time you read this letter, you will have returned from your camping trip, and I will have endured a long weekend without you. I missed you terribly, and in turn, you missed a few things as well. It all started shortly after you left. I was working in my […]

The resurrection of ‘service’ in pharmacy

Special to The Enterprise With the recession cutting into my shopping addiction, IÕll take salvation wherever I can. Thankfully, itÕs still accessible through drugs. And by drugs I mean FDA-approved financial feasts for drug manufacturers. (If you disagree, save the criticism. IÕm just doing my part for AmericaÕs health care crisis: blaming someone else.) However, […]

Moshi Moshi’s quite a catch

Someone recently accused me of bias. I had no idea what prompted this oral throw-down until she made her irrefutable case with my own published words. ThatÕs why I confess to being a bit predisposed. ÒSushiÓ buffets are an abomination, for the same reason ice milk canÕt be called ice cream, and why imitation crab […]

De Luna Jewelers offers ‘green’ option of estate sales

Enterprise columnist In Davis, there are certain things we can always count on. Bob Dunning writes a killer column. The FarmersÕ Market offers nothing but the best, including sidewalk preachers. And if ÒsushiÓ buffets are your heartÕs desire, weÕve got Õem (too many, if you ask me). So when I write about DeLuna Jewelers, at […]

Who wants to buy a toilet?

ItÕs true, even in Davis; potty humor never gets old. Just ask folks at the DHS Blue & White Foundation. TheyÕre the ones raising funds to complete the renovation of our high school stadium at Halden Field. The centerpiece of their Back on Track campaign is the most creative, limited-time only, shopping opportunity our town […]

Crisis nursery thrift shop is a true gem

In our region, Davis is known for a lot of things, and as much as weÕd like to think otherwise, theyÕre not all positive. ThereÕs a snobby rivalry we didnÕt start, nor do we feel the need to feed it; so we simply declare our tolerance for those who point fingers at us, and point […]

Morse Remodeling brings happy ending

Once upon a time, fairy tales were made possible by incredibly promiscuous lending standards. But now that weÕve all been forced to button up, arenÕt we still looking for a happy ending? If youÕve managed to hang on to your American dream Ñ your home Ñ now might be the perfect time to revive your […]

Get a little summer ‘work’ done

If youÕre squeamish about conversation that gets too personal, then todayÕs column isnÕt for you. IÕm talking about summer readiness (yes, I know itÕs only February) that doesnÕt involve a pedicure, a new beach bag or the latest trend in sunglasses. IÕm talking about laser hair removal, the kind that involves a bikini line. See? […]

Seasons Restaurant is now back in flavor

Enterprise columnist From its beginning, Seasons Restaurant has been my Cheers Ñ the place where everybody knows your name, table preference and, on challenging days, the ability to interpret a look of desperation directed at the bar. Jeff, the affable barkeep, is a quick study on facial tics and sends my usual cocktail like a […]

Hard times call for ÔnaturalÕ pleasures

Enterprise columnist At last, two brave economists declared what weÕve known for a while … weÕre in a recession. OK, we get it. Time to make adjustments. Simplicity is hot this holiday season, and thereÕs no better business to feature than one specializing in haute couture minimalism Ñ The Naturalist, 605 Second St. When I […]
