Thanks to a reader for sending a photo showing that Table 24 has closed in Orinda Theatre Square. According to the Table 24 Facebook page it closed earlier this month and will reopen as Wild Magnolia with Dianna Davis-Condon of Dianna Condon Cuisine and feature, “seasonal, sustainable, small plates”. Diablo Dish reports that they will open by Thanksgiving.
I was driving through Orinda on Moraga Way the other day when I spotted an election sign for Hillary Weiner, and thought maybe it was put up by Trump supporters to connect the Clinton campaign with Anthony Weiner. Then I drove by several more signs and realized there is actually someone named Hillary Weiner running for the Orinda School Board. 😯
