Hops, Shops, and a new Blog Poll.

November 21, 2008



The results from the latest White Oaks Blog poll are in, and suffice it say that San Carlans like dining out and being entertained.   The most popular answer to the poll question “What should go into the old Foodville location?”  was a brew-pub with live music.   This would certainly fit in well with the lively north-section of Laurel Street, and the that style of eating establishment would likely complement the other restaurants already running on north Laurel.

Second place was an excellent suggestion for an inexpensive family restaurant — Pluto's was the example that was suggested, and this is a cool restaurant.  We've eaten at the one in Davis quite often, and it would be a good fit for San Carlos.  Regardless of the selection, the whole Foodville replacement discussion will likely be altered once the plans for the Wheeler Plaza Development become more clear.   If this development becomes a reality, the whole block around San Carlos Avenue and Laurel Street will look vastly different.

Here are the final results from the latest poll:

What should go into the “old” Foodville location?

  • Brew Pub/Microbrewery with live music. (37%, 26 Votes)
  • Inexpensive family restaurant (i.e. Pluto's) (25%, 18 Votes)
  • Specialty grocery store (i.e. Fresh and Easy) (15%, 11 Votes)
  • Bicycle Shop. (8%, 6 Votes)
  • Vietnamese Restaurant. (7%, 5 Votes)
  • None of the above.  (6%, 4 Votes)
  • Bookstore. (1%, 1 Vote)

The New Poll

Since Wheeler Plaza and the development of downtown San Carlos has been a common theme this week on the site, that will be the topic for the next poll.  So here's the big question:

“Do you approve of the development that is being planned (Wheeler Plaza, Transit Village) for downtown San Carlos?”

Be sure to make your opinion known and vote on the poll!
