Steady State Delivers via Amazon

by The Editors on September 25, 2018

While we’d much rather roll down to our favorite Carlsbad coffee roasters in person (Steady State, 2562 State Street Suite G in Carlsbad), it’s nice to know that Amazon will now deliver some of their amazingly tasty Space Traveler beans directly to our door any time we like. If you’d like to order some up, click the link.

Carlsbad’s Street Fair Is May 6, 2018

by The Editors on May 2, 2018

On Sunday, May 6, 2018 the streets of downtown Carlsbad will be transformed into a walking plaza packed with all your friends and neighbors along with booths from 800 vendors as part of the The Carlsbad Village Faire.

The Carlsbad Village Faire – the largest one-day street fair in the nation – will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, May 6. The fair stretches 14 blocks. Grand Avenue from Carlsbad Boulevard to Jefferson Street, and all of the cross streets in between, will be closed for the event. Each year, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce hosts the fair in May and November. Now in its 44th year, the free event has grown to be so popular that it not only continually attracts people from all over Southern California, but also from other states.

We used to visit the Carlsbad street faire every year. To see what Carlsbad Village Faire looked like nearly a decade ago, click here for 2011 or here or 2009. For the official details from the Carlsbad Village Association, 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.

Next Measure A Result Update Tomorrow

by The Editors on February 24, 2016

carlsbad-no-signs

While the vote tally currently looks good for those hoping to defeat Carlsbad, California’s Measure A (the “no” vote is currently in the lead by 186 votes), the election is far from over. The County of San Diego Registrar of Voters says the next update to the election results will be Thursday, February 25, 2016 sometime before 5 PM.

This count will include approximately 4,100 mail ballots. The registrar is also in the process of reviewing about 3,000 “provisional” ballots, ballots that need additional verification before they can be counted. Those results are not expected until at least Friday, and possibly not until Monday, according to the registrar’s office.

In the yesterday’s election “provisional ballots” made up about 7.4 percent of the total. According to the PEW Charitable Trust, in the 2012 General Election 8.1 percent of California’s cast ballots were “provisional” so it seems like Carlsbad’s number is pretty much normal for an election in our state. It’s those late mail-in ballots that could get interesting.
