Pondering some small changes along Western Avenue

The 'Curse of the Tasman Sea' has once again struck, it seems.

The Blue Crab seems to have crawled away.

The building has been given a new coat of paint, but it seems there is probably nothing that can be done to get rid of the curse that makes all restaurants in that space face untimely deaths, if they even open in the first place.

August 1 also brought one opening and one gone business, all within just a couple of hundred feet of each other.

Sunken City, the one that WAS in Rancho Palos Verdes, has moved out.

P'SKETTIE opened today in the space right next to Marie Calendar's on Western Avenue.

We bought our lunch at the new restaurant, today.

Would you believe there is yet another restaurant in OUR community that offers Spaghetti?

P'SKETTIE's sign states that it is open for lunch between 11:00 AM and 2:30 PM, with dinner hours between 4:30 PM and 9:00 PM.

The new place is a drive-thru and it was in operation today.

Spaghetti and salads make up the menu options of the restaurant.

The Spaghetti comes in varius sizes, and without any additional cost, Marinara sauce is put on.

Meat sauce, meatballs, sausage, and chicken can be added for additional charges.

We did not see an antipasto salad on the menu board, but Terri had the Chicken Caesar salad and she enjoyed it.

There are other drive-thru restaurants in San Pedro that offer Spaghetti, but I hope everyone give P'SKETTIE a try.

I still don't know the name of the store directly next to P'SKETTIE, but it seems to sell school uniforms for cash only.

Our Ralph's continues to be remodeled. The produce section is being moved to the middle of the store.

Older versions of supermarkets had their basic foods, meat, produce, and dairy on the outer portions of the stores.

Canned foods, many frozen foods, breads, cereals, and other foods were found along the isles in the center portion of the stores.

It seems that when someone finally gets to know their supermarket and where everything is located, the store is remodeled and we have to relearn where everything is finally put.

I wonder if the Western Avenue Albertson's is going to get remodeled soon.
