what is with this listing? yesterday morning its listed, then "on hold" in the evening, today it's "relisted" or "off market". I was trying to get a showing yesterday evening but couldn't.

Notes just say "no more showings at this time" so my guess is that they got a very strong offer or they need to stage/prep the house more.

Any idea when it's opening? Always nice to have another brunch option nearby.

My fav place close by is actually a french baking school called The Pastry School that is randomly just open one-two days a week. Their croissants are so good.

They were putting the signage on the building today so hopefully soon. I’ve seen the pastry school you mentioned, I didn’t realize they sold stuff to the public. I’ll have to check it out.

What's the latest on Meadows and Oaks right now? Seems like no one ever answers the phones there.
I was working with an agent back in August-September for the Meadows. Information is difficult to get unless you're cash buyer at the time. Also, pricing seems to be disclosed in a very secretive manner compared to other new communities. I don't know why they are doing things the way they are doing, but it's quite odd they are taking this approach.

Not a cash buyer, but am able to get info as I’ve already purchased a lot. Their hands are full ATM.  I’ve experienced absent responses when I went looking at other communities highly sought after, so I guess YMMV

Here is what I mean by two interpretations…the panic porn has created two types..IHO…and me.  The first article is IHO…the second MK…

The Agony of Parents With Kids Under 5

It is the awful feeling that the world has moved on. The White House blithely anticipates a “winter of death” and suffering for the unvaccinated, but, well, that’s their own fault, isn’t it! If you’re fully vaxxed, which you of course could be, omicron will be a sniffle and a five-day reality TV binge! The Atlantic writes of reasonable people saying they’re “vaxxed and done,” people who reasonably say “COVID is becoming something like the seasonal flu for most people who keep up with their shots,” as if everyone has the option of shots to keep up with.

I want to scream. If I can scream, for a second? The pandemic is not fucking over, because children under 5 cannot get fucking vaccinated.

Bringing Sanity to the Omicron Chaos

But two weeks and some 650 days into “flattening the curve,” I’m done. I don’t care what cable news is blaring on about these days: In this house, Covid is over. On New Year’s Eve, do you know who we hosted? Two beloved friends who were positive for Omicron and stuck at home alone with mild colds. I feel great about that decision. (And I’m still negative.)

But I’m out of step with my city. When I am asked to show my vaccine card at a bar—even though that says nothing about whether or not I’m actively transmitting Covid—I want to laugh. When I eat at a restaurant where the diners are unmasked but the staff are forced to don stormtrooper headgear and gloves, I wonder if people realize what this looks like. Or when friends ask me to swab my nose so we can hang out, well, I’ll do it only because I try to be polite.

Next to the pizza press. They have a location in Costa Mesa.

They have a Korean burrito, that looks interesting.

I'm going to be in that area later today. I'll swing by to see if I can even get any information at all.

They now have portable offices open on the site.
