This open-air hotdog & hamburger stand was formerly Charlie's Barber Shop and then Pelican's Snoballs (which moved up the street).

They have another location, which is still open at 655 Saint Andrews Road in the former Tripps Fine Cleaners storefront.

I've done two closings for Eric's San Jose, one at the infamous 2630 Decker building, and one in 2016 for the immediate predecessor to this location on the far side of Target from this building.

Aside from Eric's, this building has also housed, at least, Moe's Grapevine, and Rooftop Piza Pub.

I believe I have been to this operation twice, once in the old location, and once at this one. I thought it was fine, but no better than Casa Linda which is closer to me, and the menu seemed pretty small. I think I went there a third time when I expected it to be open and found it closed, and got it in my mind that the hours were a bit odd. I haven't seen any official reason for the closing, and I don't see a web site or facebook page, but I know the nearby Lizard's Thicket was having staffing issues, so it's possible that played a part here as well.

We'll have to see what is next for this building. Since it won't be a Lizard's, and it's already been a Mexican restaurant, perhaps an Asian buffett?

I don't know much about Graph-Itti except that they a screen-printing and embroidery shop, and had been in this Rosewood location for a good while.

According to their Facebook page, they moved from here to 3620 North Main in August of this year.

To the best of my memory, I was only in this bank once. And it was fine, you know -- a bank.

On their window sign, they try to spin this closing as a move, but of course the branch farther up the road was already there. Hopefully the staff were able to go to other branches, but this is a closing. The sign is a bit unusual as well in that it doesn't give a date, which these things usually do.

I'm not sure how this address can be 4800, as this is the first block of Garners Ferry Road, but that transition area has always been a bit odd.

Base 10 Fitness, 2917 Rosewood Drive: 2020   1 comment

Base 10 Fitness was the follow-on operation in this building to Rosewood Florist. According to The State, they moved from the Fairgrounds area to this location sometime in the spring of 2018. Here are a few more details from a real estate site.

While I don't see anything online as to the cause of this closing, I would guess that COVID-19 was the proximate cause.

McDonald's Hamburgers / University Motor Company, 633 South Assembly Street: 2018 (Merged)   3 comments

I noticed the other day that this old McDonald's at the corner of Assembly & Rosewood across from the Fairgrounds is vacant. The last tenant was University Motor Company, which apparently moved in sometime around 2010, and in 2018 merged with Bluff Road Auto Sales with the combined operation at 1400 Bluff Road.

No Smoking

I was down at the far end of Rosewood last month, and noticed this fireworks store/warehouse. Looking at the google reviews, they were active up at least into May 2020. The company itself is still around, and it's not clear to me if this office has closed or just moved somewhere.

At any rate this building is for sale.

Leash The Kraken!

I thought I had done a closing for The Kraken the first time it closed, a few years ago, but I cannot now find it, so either I'm just wrong, or it got lost in the database crash a while back.

Anyway, I'm afraid I know very little about the place other than it had a cool name and was in a neightboorhood I don't normally associate with restaurants.

Here is a take from The Free Times and one from The State.

Colonial Healthcare was the follow-on operation to Blockbuster Video in this location. The first picture above is from May 2017, so they lasted in this spot about a year before apparently running into some difficulty.
