Comings and Goings: New clothes, and new life for magazine

By From page A9 | June 01, 2014

There’s a new women’s clothing boutique in Davis. Shu Shu’s is at 227 E St., Suite 3, in the alley between Chipotle and Peet’s. The last tenant there was Davis Estate Jewelry & Antiquities.
Owner Shokoufeh Hanjani offers clothing, accessories and shoes. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. She’s working on a website, www.shushusapparel.com, which she hopes to fully launch by the end of August. Call 248-635-6751 or visit its Facebook page: Shu Shu’s Clothing and Accessories.
The online Davis Life Magazine “is coming out of hibernation,” former owner Cary Arnold announced last week via Facebook.
“Terry O’Flaherty is taking over as owner/editor effective immediately,” Arnold wrote, noting that O’Flaherty comes from a large family that grew up in Davis. “(We) are working on the transition, and Terry hopes to have the magazine back up and running in the next few months.”
At the end of next weekend, Armadillo Music will pack up its records and move two doors down, to the former nestware spot at 207 F St.
After a normal business day on Sunday, June 8, the store will close at 6 p.m. and begin the process. It will be closed Monday and Tuesday, and reopen Wednesday, June 11, in the new location. An official grand-opening party is planned for Saturday, June 14.
Armadillo has been at 205 F St. for 17 years, and outgrew it, owner Josh Chapman said. The new spot has about one-third more space, which allows him to expand the inventory and provide a slightly larger stage for occasional live performances.
West Sacramento’s port district is becoming a hub for small breweries, with Bike Dog, Jackrabbit and, later this month, Yolo Brewing Company. They’re all within walking distance of one another, on Terminal Avenue or Industrial Boulevard.
Jackrabbit Brewing Company was the only one without plans for a public taproom — until now. Owners hope to start serving customers in late 2014. Plans are to offer their Belgian, English and Germany brews on Friday and Saturday nights, “with more nights possible, depending on interest.”
