Pub to serve last round, close temporarily

By February 12, 2011

The new building for Midtown Animal Clinic is complete at 525 Rowe Place. It was built on the site of its former parking lot. The old 1971 building needed too many renovations. It was demolished, and will be the site of its new parking lot.

The nearly 5,000-square-foot clinic is about 1,000 square feet larger than its predecessor. It has most of the same features and functionality but with a modern look. The clinic uses about three-quarters of that area.

The new clinic opened on Jan. 17, Dr. Cliff Gravem said. A grand opening will be announced after completion of the parking lot — probably around the end of March.

For information, call (530) 758-5650 or go to http://www.midtownanimalclinic.com.


G Street Pub is set to close Tuesday and reopen this spring or summer under new management.

Liquor manager Chris Armanini, a 15-year-employee, is taking over the lease in April.

He told The California Aggie that he hopes to reopen the pub by mid-May or early June.


The dress rental shop Suite E has moved from, well, Suite E of 231 E St., to Suite 3. The name stays the same, however.

The store also added lingerie — for purchase, of course.

For information, go to http://www.SuiteEClub.com or call (530) 554-9800.


Suite E fills the space left by the new consignment store Jacksonfly. At 231 E St., Suite 3, it closed on Jan. 30. Owner Justin Jackson posted on Facebook that he’s searching for a new site.

“If you have outstanding store credit, let me know,” he posted Feb. 1. “We plan to reopen, but don’t know how soon.”

He may be looking to share downtown space with another tenant.


CertaPro Painters has a new office in town. Owned by Monica Hunter of Davis, it offers interior and exterior house painting in Davis, Dixon, Sacramento, Vacaville and Woodland.

The office is at 417 Mace Blvd., Suite J-119, in Davis. Call Hunter at (530) 757-7356 or visit http://www.certapro.com/davis.


Tucos Wine Market and Café is expanding. Owner Pru Mendez has an application in with the city to add on to his restaurant at 130 G St.

Mendez has been leasing the space next door since summer. The additional 18 feet will allow the wine bar to host private parties. He hopes to begin construction this month.


A 2002 Davis High School graduate has opened a chiropractor practice in her hometown. Michelle Chu owns Active Family & Sports Chiropractic, at 523 G St.

The practice specializes in Active Release Technique, kinesiology taping, soft tissue therapy and functional movement/biomechanics evaluations, according to its website, http://afschiropractic.com.

Steve’s Pizza at 314 F St. reopened Wednesday after closing Jan. 31 for a change in ownership.

Namesake Steve Wilkinson said he sold the restaurant to a franchisee in November 2009, but it is now back in the family, owned by his son, Jeff, and his company, Davis Steve’s Inc., The Enterprise reported on Feb. 3.

Remodeling plans and menu changes may emerge soon, Wilkinson said.


Explorit Science Center’s museum at 2801 Second St. closed on Jan. 30.

Operations will continue in a more limited way at Explorit’s original site at 3141 Fifth St., as will the center’s traveling outreach programs, The Enterprise reported on Jan. 21. Budget cuts forced the board to lay off the museum’s three employees as well.
