The Ethiopian restaurant Queen of Sheba, 213 E St., is closed. I’m trying to contact the owner to see if it’s just temporary.

The Yolo County Visitors Bureau has a new, revamped website at http://www.yolocvb.net, designed by Heloisa Kinder of HK Atelier in Davis.

“Interactivity is a hallmark of the new website, providing extensive information about hotels and inns, meeting facilities with resources for event and meeting planners, and activities from visiting art galleries and historical sites to farm tours and winery tasting rooms,” a news release said.

“A comprehensive restaurant database, with mini-reviews, can be searched by city/location or by type of cuisine,” the release said. “Visitors to the site will find numerous maps ready for download, community links, and transportation resources available. The Calendar of Events section can be searched by date or type of activity.”

Alan Humason, executive director of the YCVB, said, “We are very excited about our new website, and we think it will serve both tourists to Yolo County as well as residents here.”
