Things are looking pretty damn cool at the Sea Lion Cove being constructed at Fresno Chaffee Zoo. The exhibit's viewing area is starting to come into focus (where the dudes are standing under the poles) and it's slightly exciting to us AND the zoo's sea lions. Go measure Z, ey!?
WAIT! Don't get confused, this show isn't happening tonight. It's from the 80's - kinda doubt they'd let a punk show into the Wilson these days... but ya never know. And it is proof that the Circle Jerks played here once. Pretty fuckin' awesome.
Thanks to James Collier (of Taste Fresno and other cool stuff) for this one. This is somewhere in Chinatown by the CYC... apparently it's also called Japantown in some sections... or something. Guess we'll Ask Paula about that.
A large portion of Fig Garden Village was tented off Sunday for something. Either Termites or maybe Gonorrhea. Our Fig favorites too, like Haute Dave's, Hungry Bear Cookies, Jamba Juice, Deli Delicious and Cold Stone. All covered and gassed in.
Think maybe we'll wait a couple days for the fumes to settle down before we get a "Cookie Doughn't Wantsum" ... ahhh who are we kidding, we'd totally walk THROUGH the tent and get Gonorrhea if that's what it would take to get some of their cookie dough goodness.
As many of you have seen, Celebration Church has taken over the old Levitz building on West Shaw (their sign is a big as the old Levitz sign, you can't miss it). If you've seen that, then you've probably seen the big ass dominoes they put on the front facade. What the shit is that about?
Was Jesus a big dominoes player? Is it some sorta sick inside joke that only Celebration Church people get? You twisted sickos.
Not sure if somebody talked about this somewheres but we noticed Wednesday night that Starline has a new front/facade/sign. Gone is the gritty punk flier filled frontage. Replaced by the clean all black front with a organized flier area with a nice lit sign.
Starline has always needed better signage. But still kinda miss the old one:
Do not know the story of what happened to Mr. Sushi's window there on Olive in the Tower District. We were totally, like, going to ask and stuff. But the place was closed Monday when we saw this so that's about all the journalisming we're willing to do.
Come on guys, Mr. Sushi may not be the best sushi in town, but it's no reason to go breakin' shit. Or is it?
The Fresnan is a blog drunk on Fresno's sweet sweet booze.
We like posting about local music and random Fresno culture junk. We like Downtown, tri-tip, South of Shaw battles, tamales and remembering when there was a fig orchard at Herndon & Palm. We like to occasionally go to River Park but tell people we never go there.
