Paddle boats paddle back*

Confirmed that the paddle boats will be back in service, and right quick! Thanks again to Martin Cox -- for keeping the pressure on. Thanks to Eric Garcetti and CD-13 people. The boats will be in service again starting Sat. Dec. 1. No official word about whether they'll return to MacArthur Park, though that outcome is not beyond the pale.

The Downbeat Cafe will extend its "Without a Paddle" show for two weeks. Now that we are with paddle. There will be an informal celebration Saturday early evening at the Downbeat, following the close of the first fall day of boating -- 6 p.m. 1202 Alvarado near Sunset.
