• Marin City supermarket prepares to launch – Marin IJ 3/4/24

    A new store opening in Marin City will bring a neighborhood supermarket to a community that has long lacked one. The store at 150 Donahue St. will open at 7 a.m. Thursday, said Chantha Vath, one of the local owners. She said she hopes for 1,000 customers on opening day. Employees have been stocking the store with non-perishable dry goods, health items and pet food. Beginning Monday, perishable produce, meat and deli items will arrive. The couple used to own a Grocery Outlet in Fairfield but sold it when they moved to Marin City in May.

    – Marin IJ 5/8/24

    Marin restaurateurs Olivier and Susannah Souvestre bring a slice of France to Sausalito’s Bridgeway Promenade with last month’s opening of Suzette Cafe & Bistro, their second restaurant in town and a move that takes them from Caledonia Street out to the waterfront.

    Chef Souvestre is familiar in local dining circles for his French cuisine at Le Garage in Sausalito that he stepped away from in 2019, San Anselmo’s L’Appart Resto that closed in 2010 and the Frenchified American comfort food at Fast Food Francais (F3) that the couple transitioned to Mediterranean-inspired Zalta in 2021.

    The Suzette brunch/lunch and dinner menus focus on the classic French dishes that reinspired Olivier Souvestre during his recent travel to old-school bistros in France. Read more>>

  • Taste your way through Sausalito at its Restaurant Week– Marin IJ

    When I left San Francisco for Sausalito in the 1990s, I was primarily enticed by the coastal city’s proximity to vast open spaces and the dazzling vistas around almost every corner. What I soon discovered was that beneath its touristy façade is not only a food scene that does far more than cater to vacationers but also a deep sense of community cultivated by a slew of annual epicurean events, from a soup stroll and chili cook-off to a local beer, wine and spirits festival.

    Next week’s inaugural Sausalito Restaurant Week from March 18 to 24 is the latest addition and offers the opportunity to experience Sausalito’s culinary range with special three-course dinner menus at a dozen of its restaurants ($55 to $75) plus a two-course lunch at a select few ($25 to $45). Some are also adding a $10 specialty cocktail made with gin, bourbon or rye from Sausalito Liquor Co.

  • Famed bartender Johnny Love lands in Marin – Marin IJ

    If you came of drinking age in the 1990s, then you know the name Johnny Love — not the singer, but rather the barman. Johnny Love’s real name is Johnny Metheny, but it was his nickname that became the name of his famous pseudo-eponymous club on Polk Street. That late-night fixture led to two more, one in Walnut Creek and one in San Diego.... Metheny even started a vodka brand, in conjunction with Devotion Vodka, back in 2010 called Johnny Love Vodka. The clubs and the vodkas are gone but Johnny Love is still around and in the bar business. Read more>>

    California Tourism Spending Reaches Record High – Travel Pulse Laurie Baratti 5/5/24

    Governor Gavin Newsom and Visit California CEO Caroline Beteta just broke the news that California still retains the largest market share of tourism in the entire United States. According to new data released today, travel spending in the Golden State reached a record high of $150.4 billion in 2023, outstripping the previous record amount of $144.9 billion seen in 2019.

  • Take a tour of Sausalito’s million-dollar houseboats – SF Standard George Kelly 5/5/24

    In the serene waters of Waldo Point Harbor, Sausalito's eclectic houseboat community enjoys everything from impromptu float-in concert performances by local musicians to informal fresh fish or ceviche sales from commercial fishermen—all set to the ever-present cries of seagulls and the gentle lapping of waves.

    Among the 400-plus floating homes along the marinas' docks are luxurious multilevel vessels with sweeping water views, decks hovering just above Richardson Bay's surface and price tags surpassing $1 million. It's a far cry from the community's counterculture roots in the 1960s when artists and writers, tinkerers and other fringe-dwellers claimed abandoned wartime ships as alternative living spaces.

  • Sausalito grants rent reprieve for arts nonprofit – Marin IJ  4

    Sausalito will keep the rent low for its tenant, the Sausalito Center for the Arts — for now. The nonprofit rents a city-owned building at 750 Bridgeway, where the rent was set to rise from $4,029 to $11,095 per month in March. The center asked the City Council to amend the lease to keep rent the same. When the lease was negotiated in 2022, the initial rent was set around $11,000. City leaders cut the center a break for 18 months so it could raise more funds and get set up. Read more>>

  • 2024 economic outlook for Marin County a positive oneNorth Bay Business Journal

    Inflation and the high cost of living still top the list of major concerns consumers face today in the wake of tight monetary policy. But this is already beginning to change with lower prices for appliances, gasoline, furniture, and used cars — as well as due to the possibility of interest rate cuts affecting borrowing costs coming into view. At the same time, the labor market remains strong, calming fears of a pending recession. Read more>>

  • Sausalito approves new ferry landing project plans – Marin IJ  Krissy Waite 2/9/24

The City Council approved a design review permit for the project in a unanimous vote on Tuesday. The recommended plan details a new landing plaza, provisions for pedestrians and cyclists to queue in the same direction, and widened walkways.

  • Panoramic Highway to Operate on One Lane. Single lane traffic control to be in place at milepost 2.26 for about 2 months.

    Starting Monday, January 29, Panoramic Highway will temporarily be reduced to a single lane at milepost 2.26, just south of the Mountain Home Inn, allowing for alternating two-way access controlled by a temporary traffic signal. The lane closure is required for construction of a retaining wall.

    Travelers between the Mount Tamalpais area and Stinson Beach should expect traffic delays of up to 10 minutes. Expedited access will always be provided for active emergency service vehicles. The single lane traffic control is expected to be in place through the end of March, but the duration could be extended if weather impacts the construction schedule.

    The construction zone is a 700-foot stretch of road approximately 1.3 miles northwest of the intersection of Panoramic Highway, Sequoia Valley Road, and Muir Woods Road — locally known as Four Corners. That section of Panoramic Highway is a popular route with tourists visiting Mount Tamalpais State Park, Muir Wood National Monument, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Point Reyes National Seashore, and Marin’s Pacific beaches.

    The retaining wall is part of a slide repair project that began in November 2023. The Marin County Department of Public Works (DPW) is managing the slide repair project which involves installation of new retaining walls, guardrails, and pavement along Panoramic Highway. The damage was caused by a major storm in October 2021 that dumped 12 inches of rain on the mountain within a 24-hour period.

  • This Electric ‘Flying Water Taxi’ Might Soon Be Ferrying You to SFO – The San Francisco Standard Astrid Kane 1/18/24

    Navier, the electric “flying water taxi” company whose pollution-free hydrofoils enable them to zip almost silently across bodies of water, wants to eliminate one of the most stressful voyages of all: the drive to the airport.

    The 4-year-old company (pronounced “NAV-ee-ay”) which builds its boats in Maine, has secured landing rights to Coyote Point Recreation Area, a park with a marina just south of San Francisco International Airport. From there, shuttles would drive passengers roughly 5 miles to the airport, addressing what’s known as the “last-mile problem.”

    Navier is working to procure docking space from several points of origin in Marin County and the East Bay, focusing on waterfront areas that are far from a direct transit connection to SFO already.
