NVV: We Read It So You Don't Have To

The Noe Valley Voice is published ten times a year, and while we love the idea -- it's pretty lightweight. Here's everything you want to know from the latest issue.

September 2008
  • The Church Street Apothecary is closing - the CA Board of Pharmacy won't let them use the word apothecary in their name, so they're selling.
  • The cost of living in Noe: Noe is still hot, hot, hot.
  • Every month people drag their copy of the Voice to far off places (from Angkor Wat to Zurich) to get into the NVV. Seriously?
  • Rumors: Whole Foods will take over Bell Market in spring of 2009, no new construction planned; Kookez sold and closed; Rose Quartz hoping her customers follow her to Oakland.
  • Long-time Noe Valley resident and lesbian activist Del Martin died on August 27th.

I would just like to leave a note, as the owner of Kookez Cafe. We are not yet closed. We closed for a week in August for our yearly vacation, and apparently every blogger in the city decided to blog we were closed, without calling to confirm. So, until you hear it directly from us, we are still open for business. Fri-Sun 9am - 2pm. Thanks!

Thanks for the tip! We've covered this in a new post.

Please keep us updated.

Awesome, thanks for correcting that for us. As soon as things are wrapped up for certain, I will gladly let you know! I appreciate you setting the record straight for us :) Sorry if I sounded snarky, it's just been a struggle with constantly finding blogs that we have already closed, when we haven't.
