library dome going up

8 Apr

We were driving on the connector from 163 to I-5 south last weekend and noticed the dome is starting to appear on top of the new library downtown. Here’s some pictures from the surrounding neighborhood:

Completion is scheduled for summer of 2013. Updates can be found here, where they’re still taking donations.

On the other side of Petco Park, Lucky’s has opened in the Culy Warehouse (also coming to Culy: Block No. 16 Union and Spirits club, where their 25 by 35 foot LCD screen just went up).

A deli counter tucked into a small space, they’re serving sandwiches, salads and breakfast late into the night. We were impressed with their service – even though you pay at the counter, staff come by to refill your soda and check if you need anything. Our turkey and roast beef sandwiches were piled high, but at $11 a pop they better be:

Up in North Park, says the folks that brought you Golden Hill’s Counterpoint have purchased the Post Office building that closed last July. And there’s a new mural up on the west-facing wall of Wang’s, painted by NYC artist Mark Paul Deren:

Gregg N says:

That sandwich above looks amazing. I might just have to give Lucky’s a try next time I visit the park.

      Description: Hard to believe it’s been five years since we opened our doors! AND won the 2009 Grand Orchid Award for architectural excellence!

      In partnership with the San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF), we're throwing our official 5th Anniversary Party!

      Meet the jurors of the upcoming 2014 Orchids & Onions, cast your ballot in “pop-up voting booths” for this year’s nominees (today is the last day to vote!) and raise a pint during our Grand Orchid plaque unveiling ceremony.

      A portion of all proceeds from the evening will benefit SDAF’s mission to promote awareness of local architecture and San Diego’s built environment.

      PLUS, we'll be serving up ROOT BEER FLOATS at an ice cream stand set up by our fab neighbors, The Daily Scoop.

      For those over 21, bring your scoop of vanilla up to the bar for a STOUT FLOAT featuring our 5-year anniversary collaboration brew w/ Monkey Paw Brewing!
