The Dish

All the News That's Fit to Eat

Pearl's Dive is Officially Done—I leave the country for a few weeks and look what happens. Much to the shock of her customers (and employees, a good percentage of whom live in my apartment building), owner Pearl Yeast suddenly closed, and sold, Pearl's Dive (509 Central NW) after hanging on for almost a month with no liquor license. (The license's official owner transferred it to the Carom Club weeks before the new eatery opened, which no doubt had some effect on Pearl's decision.) Word is that the buyer is a real estate speculator with no background in restaurants to speak of—if anything, he'll lease the space to a new restaurant rather than carry on the Pearl's brand. But who knows? Don't expect much activity in the space for the next couple of months. The Dive's last day of operation was Friday, March 10.

Meatout, Party Down—On Saturday, March 25, La Siringitu Vegetarian Café will host a "Great American Meatout" festival with live musical performances, vendors and informational booths on the joys of eating green. The free festival goes from noon–8 p.m. at the restaurant (1501 Mountain NW). Call 244-9105 for more information, or log on to www.meatout.org to learn about the Meatout.

Celebrate the First of Spring at the Co-op Garden PartyAlso on Saturday is La Montañita Co-op's seventh Valley Co-op Garden Party (held in the Valley location's parking lot at 2400 Rio Grande NW). Load the kids up and enjoy live music from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m., food and presentations by local farmers and other plant-happy community members. Admission is free. Contact Robin Seydel at 212-2027 ext. 105 or memb@lamontanitacoop.com for more information.
