Al Mires performs at Cafe Paradisio Friday, December 9.

Thanks to thunderous clamor from my reading public, I’m back, and I’ll try to stay back. (Thanks to the five of you.)

A fond farewell goes to music venues recently closed in our area: California Brewing Company, The Savory Spoon, and Bricks Roadhouse. We’ll lose another venue soon, as Cafe Paradisio will close in mid-December.

If all this isn’t sad enough, Jack Goschke, one of the founding partners of California Brewing Company, died shortly after the doors closed at CBC.

Rest in peace, Jack.

    Woohoo!

    See?  Without Hal’s column, I’d never have known that The Dip has a house band (I assume) called The Dipsh*ts.

    Hall….. Thanks for the encore! Hope you stay for a while. Sad to see dining and refreshment venues that have supported music going away. Thankful for what we do have but hope someone expands or opens a larger establishment as what we have is not real conducive to medium or larger bands. But it’s neice small acts have places to play!
