NVV Nov 2016: We Read It So You Don't Have To

The Noe Valley Voice is published ten times a year and has been a neighborhood fixture since 1977. Here are notable highlights from the latest issue. Links are to stories we've covered here on NVSF or other resources. Follow the NVV link at the bottom for full articles and all the ads.

November 2016

Front Page: Noe Valley businesses that give to the local community (including Just for Fun, Firefly, La Ciccia, Cliche Noe and Zephyr); the Town Square debuts; we may be at peak rents for Noe Valley (for now).

Letters: A letter from Modern Times bookstore in the Mission - they're closing for good on Nov. 15; a lament about the demise of Drewes Brothers Meats (which may return as a new meat market soon).

Features: Noe Valley parking meters will likely increase rates as demand-based pricing spreads citywide.

Cost of Living in Noe: The luxury home market is cooling slightly and the average cost of a home dropped to $2 million.

Short Takes: Cliche Noe is sponsoring a Christmas tree lighting this year; Upper Noe Neighbors and PlumpJack will offer free drinks post election day with the launch of the Upper Noe Wine Club from 5-8pm at the VIP Scrub Club. You'll find SF Firefighters Program holiday toy barrels accepting donations for needy children at Cliche Noe and Just for Fun starting Nov 21.

Store Trek: Damia Salon, 1504 Church Street

Rumors and Tidbits: Small Business Saturday happens on Nov. 26 and 24Holidays begins Dec. 1 in downtown Noe Valley, with hayrides, shopping, caroling, reindeer, Santa and more. The Town Square is open, the Farmer's Market has a new home there, and the first big event is a Square Dance on Nov 5. Other events planned for the Square are movie nights and meditation - and the location is available for rent if you're interested. Also coming soon: eight benches that will line the square which have been stuck in customs in L.A. French bistro Le Zinc has closed following the death of the owner's wife and another French restaurateur, Laurent Legendre, is buying the restaurant and the new menu will be "totally French." (Legendre also owns Le P'tit Laurent on Chenery in Glen Park.) Noe Valley Bakery is expanding to West Portal and would like you to help pay for it. The former Cradle of the Sun space has been rented to Olive This Olive That, which will relocate from it's current spot on Vicksburg, and The Swann Group, a retail furniture and interior design business run by realtor Rachel Swann. The goal for both is to open this month. Video Wave is staying in the current spaces for at least another year. One Stop Party Shop on outer Church reports that the most popular costumes this year were Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton; for kids it was Star Wars characters. Chocolate Covered was named SF Magazine's 2016 Best Chocolate Shop; other Noe Valley spots that made the Best of list were La Ciccia and Lovejoy's. Dani Sheehan-Meyer made the Merchant of the Year 2016 list for Cliche Noe, and NV filmmakers Linda and Tim Schaller won the Best Documentary Award at the LA World International Film Festival for A Spark of Nerve, a film about the doctors who helped their daughter regain the use of her arm after a deranged SF man attacked her.
