11/27/2001 Entry: "Shimmering Neon Lights."
As a fan of the restored Paramount Theatre, I'm actually excited to see the handsome Fox Theatre, closed since 1965, is finally being restored, and its sign relit. The boyfriend happened to walk past recently and saw that they were nearly done with a lot of exterior work. This Thursday at 5:30 (which makes it a little inconvenient for workers in SF to attend) they will have the relighting ceremony. (Links via the Boyfriend.)
I find myself cheering for Oakland a lot more lately, happy to see the city starting to appreciate its history, living or otherwise...acts of arson not withstanding.
