Carlsbad’s Favorite Bike Boutique Moves

by The Editors on April 10, 2021

Velo Hangar, Carlsbad’s favorite bespoke bicycle boutique (which was located in a shipping container behind the Village Rock Shop at the corner of State and Beech Streets), is leaving the Village of Carlsbad for a new “temporary” workshop in the Palomar Forum Business Park off Lionshead, according to owner Gordon Yeager. Here’s the story from the man himself:

On Monday April 5th, I’ll be opening my new Workshop space in the Palomar Forum Business Park. Like all my spots have been, it’s off the beaten path… The Entrance & Parking is around back. If you find the “Lucidity” Sprinter you’re in the right place. I also will have new hours. Shop will be open Monday thru Friday 11ish to 6ish. . . This is my stepping stone. It’s a great opportunity that my friends from Lucidity Biz Development offered to me until my dream spot is found. So come on by, drop off your bike, enjoy the view, share a Beveridge & spread the love.

Velo Hangar is located at 3132 Tiger Run Ct, Suite 102, in Carlsbad.

Aptera Rises Like A Tricycle Phoenix

by The Editors on January 8, 2021

Remember way back in the day when you used to see those sleek little three-wheeled cars bombing around Carlsbad? They were going to change the entire auto industry? They were Carlsbad’s little electric darlings? Then they went away. The company began refunding down payments and auctioning off all their property. And then crickets. Hard to believe that was almost a decade ago.

Well, it seems Aptera is back. This new promo video features neighborshoods all around us. Is yours in this video? Is so, let us know. And welcome back Aptera. The new cars look even more darling than they did nine years ago.

The Land & Water Co. Shuts Off

by The Editors on October 17, 2019

Chef Rob Ruiz shut down his The Land & Water Co. restaurant in the old Twin Inn building of the Village Faire shopping center in Carlsbad on October 12, 2019 with little notice to customers, according to a story on Pacific San Diego.

The closure of Land & Water came as a surprise to diners, who learned via Instagram and Facebook on Saturday morning that Oct. 12 would be its last day of business. He was gratified by the large turnout of customers who showed up in the final days to see the restaurant off.

The story makes no mention of why the restaurant closed on such short notice, or what will move into the space now that Ruiz is gone. We have friends who loved Ruiz’s culinary exploits, however, we never made it in to try it ourselves. Guess now we never will. But don’t worry  The Charles Kenneth speakeasy is still rolling along downstairs. For more on Ruiz and what else he has planned in San Diego, please click the link.

Legoland has reportedly unveiled a 10-foot LEGO model of their newest, biggest, brightest, bestest theme park set to to open in Goshen, New York in 2020, according to a story on Inparkmagazine.com.

The model is made of more than 135,000 LEGO bricks and took 20 Master Model Builders more than 1,300 hours to design and build. . . “LEGOLAND New York is coming and it’s time to get excited,” said LEGOLAND New York’s Public Relations Manager Matt Besterman. “This will be the ultimate must-see destination for families in the Northeast.”

You know, so they won’t have to travel to Carlsbad or Florida to get their Legoland fix. Not only that, but this new park (sorry Carlsbad) will be parent company Merlin Entertainments’ “largest investment in a single park to date.” Ouch. For the rest of the story, please click the link.
