    I was told by an employee Sage & Onion is converting to Worker Bee likely the week of the 21st.

    La Hacienda in Goleta opened a few weeks ago.

    Night Lizard?

  5. Christine says:

    “Five new stores have recently opened in Paseo Nuevo including Yes Dance, Saje Natural Wellness, Santa Barbara Souvenir and Apparel, Poke Ceviche and 2bella clothing. ”

    Is Poke Ceviche not open yet? Noozhawk reports it as open.
