Two pubs plan opening parties

From page A8 | October 23, 2011 |

DeVere’s Irish Pub, filling the old Soga’s spot at 217 E St., plans a pre-opening party on Nov. 8 for its Facebook fans.

The event originally was planned for Oct. 17, but was postponed.

On Tuesday, the deVere White family wrote this on the pub’s Facebook page: “Due to licensing setbacks that are beyond our control, the grand opening of de Vere’s Irish Pub in Davis — and all the related pre-opening events — will need to be rescheduled. We are working tirelessly to get this resolved immediately, and hope to have updated dates and details ready within the next few days.”

A Twitter event was planned as well, but had yet to be announced as I wrote this. To get free tickets to the events, go to the Davis pub’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Nearby at 213 E St., an Indian restaurant is said to be filling the spot left vacant when the Ethiopian restaurant Queen of Sheba closed. Remodeling is under way. I’ll keep you posted when I learn more.

The new bar that will replace the G Street Pub — G Street WunderBar — will host a Halloween Ball for its grand opening party on Friday, Oct. 28. The event, from 9 p.m. to midnight at 228 G St., is open to adults 21 and over. Admission is free. No word if there will be a soft opening before the big bash. For information, go to the event’s Facebook page.

Orange Hut, the longtime Chinese restaurant at 226 Third St., near the university, closed for good on Sept. 30.

The employee I spoke with said a Vietnamese noodle soup restaurant based in Sacramento will fill the spot. It plans to remodel, with hopes of opening in November, she said.

What’s that construction going on across from Target? It’s a new Chase bank branch being built on Second Street. Eileen Leveck, a Northern California spokeswoman for JPMorgan Chase, said Thursday that the company hopes to have the branch open at the end of this year or by early 2012.

It will be a full-service branch, like its branch at 330 E St. There are three other Chase ATMs in Davis — two at the CVS/pharmacy stores and one at Target.

Tots Trade Center is closed. The store at 515 G St. sold and consigned used children’s clothing and toys. It’s the second store of its kind to close recently. Just KIDding, in the E Street Plaza, went out of business over the summer.

There’s a third Halloween store in town that I haven’t mentioned. Spirit Halloween is filling part of the former Border’s space in Davis Commons. The other stores are Xtreme Halloween at Fourth and E streets, and Halloween City is in The Marketplace.

Davis native Jennifer Wendt will open girlgonegreen skincare on Nov. 3 inside Smooth As Silk Day Spa, 305 D St.

Wendt spent the past seven years at the South Davis PureBeauty, which has closed. Her practice focuses on organic skin care and natural waxing techniques, with an emphasis on local products.

For more information, visit the business’ page on Facebook or Davis Wiki, or call (530) 219-5822.

S&S Computer Repair & Technology Solutions opened in August at 1260 Lake Blvd., Suite 104. It’s in Westlake Plaza. Owned by locals Sean Goozey and Stephen Dixon, it helps residential and business customers with their computer repairs, whether it’s PCs or Macs.
