OAK + elixir Enters A New Relm

by The Editors on May 9, 2017

If you’ve been by State St. in the heart of Carlsbad Village recently you may have noticed that Relm, the wine bar, has closed. Apparently, it was closed in order to reopen as OAK+elixir. Here’s what the owners are saying:

While we really enjoyed Relm during it’s time, we’re looking forward to a new season. But don’t worry, the wine bar is remaining! During the closure we’ve rejuvenated the space and reimagined the wine and food menus, and we can’t wait for you to experience the new O+E.

OAK + elixir will celebrate its grand opening on Friday June 2, 2017 at 6:30 PM. If you like wine, beer, and food (and from the looks of this town everyone does) then drop by and say hello. For the official word from OAK + elixir, please follow the jump.

Ride Cyclery Shutters Carlsbad Store

by The Editors on May 5, 2017

Ride Cyclery gave Carlsbad a good go, however, it seems they’ve decided that their location next to Bobby’s Hideaway Cafe on El Camino Real just North of Cannon wasn’t cutting it and announced that as of Friday, May 5, 2017 they are shutting the location down. Here’s how they pitched it:

Every good story has a beginning and an end. We had a good RIDE with RIDE Cyclery – Carlsbad, however today marks the end of the story for this particular shop. . . We would like to thank you for your support over the past few years! We made a ton of new friends, had fun playing in the dirt and are grateful for the things we learned through this venture.

Ride will still be servicing customers through their Encinitas and San Diego stores as well as their RIDE 2U Mobile Showroom and Service Van. It was nice having a great shop nearby and we will miss them, but we totally understand — that location was pretty much an invisible hole.

Say Aloha To Pineapples At Islands

by The Editors on March 22, 2017

It’s Pineapple season at our favorite locally owned burger chain Islands Restaurant (they’re based Carlsbad, right?) And to kick off the season they’re loading up on some special pineapple menu items.

Starting April 1 and running through May 31, pineapple lovers will find a limited time Pineapple Pairing Menu with suggested pairings of popular pineapple dishes from the main menu. Favorites include the Hawaiian Burger, topped with fresh grilled pineapple and teriyaki sauce, paired with the Big Island Iced Tea; the Yaki Tacos, topped with a house-made grilled pineapple salsa, paired with a refreshing Piña Colada; and the Hoisin Beach Bowl, made with chunks of fresh grilled pineapple and grilled vegetables, served over brown rice with mahi mahi or chicken and paired with a signature Mai Tai. Each pairing is meant to complement and bring out the sweet and savory flavors of the fruit.

If you’re into pineapples, of watching surf videos while you eat, stop buy islands and go Hawaiian. For the official word from the restaurant that goes through over 180,000 pineapples a year, click the link.

Cohn Brings Draft Republic To Carlsbad

by The Editors on February 27, 2017

We’ve never been fans of chain restaurants. In fact, we avoid them whenever possible. But when the chain is San Diego based, family owned, and produces amazingly consistent restaurants like Vintana, Island Prime, and The Prado, then, well, we find ourselves making an exception. That’s why we’re pretty excited about the Cohn Restaurant Group bringing Draft Republic to Carlsbad (in the old Claim Jumper spot on Avenida Encinas).

According to a story in the Seaside Courier it’s going to go a little like this:

Draft Republic Carlsbad will showcase an open warehouse environment with communal seating, as well as nostalgic table games such as ping-pong, foosball, billiards and retro arcade games. Exclusive to the new Carlsbad site, two massive video walls and over 40 televisions will cater to the sports TV crowd. . . . As the name suggests, the highlight of Draft Republic’s beverage program is an impressive lineup of more than 101 craft beers on tap. With a heavy emphasis on local San Diego breweries, the bar program will also feature a diverse wine list and a variety of craft cocktails including beer cocktails and sangria.

People certainly seem to love beer (and their TVs), so we’re guessing Draft Republic will be an instant hit in Carlsbad.
