EASY Tips on Saving WATER!!!


Finally! Easy - and painless - ways to save water. 

It's likely going to be a brown summer in Marin. And this could be just the beginning of a tough drought.

San Anselmo Restaurant (R)Evolution! (cont'd)


In our most recent post, we reported on the transformation of Lo Coco's  Pizza into True North Pub and Grill, and the evolving vision of the new owner, Buck Minitch in his quest to carve out a niche for himself and provide exciting, interesting, and affordable food options in San Anselmo. Buck has plans for several more restaurants as he aims to attract more diners and shoppers to the heart of town and help to promote and preserve the vitality of the business district.

Current plans call for split hours,...
