A Little Sugar at Mi Little Oaxaca Bakery & Cafe

Posted By on Sat, Jan 23, 2021 at 12:30 PM

Where once Tasty Tacos sold its generous namesake in Cutten, Mi Little Oaxaca Bakery & Cafe has opened its doors. Owner Jose Chavez Posos started turning out custom cakes, cupcakes, sandwiches and tortas in early December of last year after selling cakes out of his home. Chavez Posos' says this is his first business in the U.S. but, after culinary school in Mexico, he worked with his family business selling wings, burgers and tomato-y beer micheladas.

Photos: The Crab Has Landed

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2021 at 4:51 PM

After delays due to weight and price negotiations, and despite rough seas over the weekend that led to one fishing boat requiring rescue by the Coast Guard, Humboldt welcomed crab boats to its docks and their haul of Dungeness to its tables. Boats like the Sandy B, The Corregidor, the Josie L and the Jenna Lee pulled the coveted crustaceans from their live wells for customers who came to the docks for the first taste of the season.

Posted By on Fri, Jan 15, 2021 at 6:52 AM

Garberville lost a stalwart watering hole on Sunday when the Blue Room Lounge announced on Facebook it had poured its last cocktail. The bar's owner did not respond to messages from the Journal but patrons replied to the post with their lamentations. 

It is the start of a new year but the end of an era. We are heartbroken to inform you that the Blue Room has had its...

Eating in the Purple Tier

Posted By on Wed, Jan 13, 2021 at 5:16 PM

On Tuesday, the state moved Humboldt County back into the purple "widespread" tier. Some of the restrictions under the state's highest risk tier have shifted over the course of the pandemic, so here's a rundown of what's allowed at eating and drinking establishments under current conditions.

Bars that don't serve food must remain closed. Indoor dining is closed, while outdoor dining is allowed with modifications. Those modifications include spacing outdoor tables at least 6 feet apart (measured from the back of a chair at one table to the back of a chair at the next table) and, if using a tent, only closing one side. Takeout and delivery are still allowed.

Opera Alley Bistro Redux

Posted By on Sun, Jan 10, 2021 at 1:00 PM

The keen sense of déjà vu you may be experiencing passing Opera Alley Bistro where once Café Nooner slung its falafel and burgers is warranted — another business by the same name operated there years ago. But this venture, opened officially Dec. 1 of last year, is run by Autumn and Kyall Widmier, who also own the Madrone Taphouse just across the lot. “We decided to revive something that used to be in Old Town,” says Kyall.

And Old Town could use the reviving, with storefronts closing and the pandemic squeezing those businesses hanging on. The price of the Nooner's equipment in the rented space was "hard to say no [to], even in the middle of a pandemic.”

Sweet Home for Chicago Dog House

Posted By on Tue, Jan 5, 2021 at 8:03 AM

The loss of Deo's Sandwich Shop in September had Henderson Center regulars collectively crumpling and throwing napkins in despair for the 47-year-old establishment. But what could replace it in such a tiny space? Chicago Dog House, formerly of Redwood Acres, has brought its Windy City cart fare to the spot, opening on the first of the year.
