Customers don’t want to see El Mariachi go

El Mariachi, a Mexican eatery at Fourth and G streets, will close at the end of the month. It will be replaced by a new TakoKorean BBQ, which serves Korean/Mexican fusion food. It has an eatery at 3030 T St. in Midtown Sacramento.

El Mariachi fans will miss its friendly owner, Victor, and some of the most authentic and inexpensive Mexican meals in town. When I posted this news on my Comings & Goings Facebook page, it received more comments and shares than any item in recent memory.

Owner Andy Rathbone extended the closing date for Davis Awards & Watchworks. It’s staying open until Dec. 31, to make it 20 years – to the day – in business. It’s at 716 Second St.

The store offers trophies, plaques and awards; sells and repairs watches; and does other engraving.

An architectural firm has purchased the former Dairy Queen property at 909 Fifth St.

Jonathan Hammond and Bruce Playle, owners of Indigo Hammond + Playle Architects, acquired the site in October. The firm will “expand and repurpose the existing building as a super-sustainable studio/office,” Hammond said, noting that he and Playle were “pleased with the existing building’s unique roofline,” which they intend to preserve.

Sweet and Shavery, a new Italian shave ice dessert store coming to 210 E St., in the E Street Plaza, may open soon.

Co-owner Brian Nuss said he hopes to open during UC Davis’ winter break, with a possible grand opening in January. It will serve Italian ice, frozen custard and crepes.

Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse is open at 164 Main St. in Woodland, in Ruby Tuesday’s former building.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 a.m. daily except for Sundays, when it opens at noon. Call 530-661-0900 or visit www.originalpetes.net/locations/woodland.

The menu includes pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, salads, soups and craft beer.

A wakeboarding water park is under development at Dubach Recreation facility in Woodland. Velocity Island Park “will consist of a clockwise-rotating, five-tower cable system,” which pulls the boarders around a lake, its Facebook page says.

It is north of Interstate 5, at 775 N. East St.

This style of park uses cables rather than boats to pull wakeboarders. Wakeboards are short, wide water skis that allow more agility and tricks than traditional skis. Other sports might include wakeskating and knee boarding, and my favorites: wakesurfing and waterskiing.
