Katrina Rozelle Pastries & Desserts sent out this note today;
“2020 has arrived, and with it comes change. After 33 years in business, Katrina is retiring. Though a bittersweet decision, it’s time to step back and slow down. She has closed her Oakland store, effective December 31st, and her Alamo location will close on February 1, 2020. Katrina, and her husband, Ken, are deeply grateful for all of the community support that has made Katrina Rozelle Pastries and Desserts a destination for discriminating dessert lovers for over 3 decades. They are also immensely thankful to the loyal and hardworking employees who have so tirelessly contributed to the success of the business over the years. Since 1987, Katrina and her crew have sweetened Bay Area celebrations to the tune of thousands of wedding cakes, from simple and grand; tens of thousands of birthday and party cakes of every conceivable size and shape; and literally millions of deliciously addictive cookies, not to mention her wonderful holiday products. Katrina knows that there will be pangs of withdrawal as the ready supply of these items disappears; she will miss them, too. She might even have to start baking at home! There’s no easy way to say goodbye, but Katrina and crew would love to see you before the doors close. Stop by the Alamo store and help us bid farewell to a one of a kind Bay Area institution.”
Today and 2 shows on Sunday, Dave will be performing here in San Francisco. Chappelle has a bit of a fondness for the Bay Area, and plays in local venues several times a year, often booking and announcing them as surprise shows.

Adios! In less than 2 weeks another Mexican restaurant in Danville has shut its doors. Known for their great location in the Plaza, a favorite hangout to pre-flight the Blackhawk Concert Series, and for their “El Jefe” burrito challenge, The Prickly Pear Cantina has been shut down leaving the Blackhawk Plaza even more bleak.
Just in this morning. Thief robs the Danville McDonalds restaurant at Crow Canyon Road. Asian male adult, 20s and 30s, escapes in a Toyota with license plate ending in “…45.” No injuries. Unknown amount of cash was stolen.
