First Look Inside the Inn at Mattei’s Tavern

••• While researching the Inn at Mattei’s Tavern in Los Olivos for the recent roundup of forthcoming restaurants, I noticed that the property has a lot of new photos, including shots of model rooms. They look rather nice, no? The booking engine autofills January 1, 2022, but it’s not accepting reservations yet.

••• And when I was checking out the Low Pigeon under construction at Anacapa and Ortega, I noticed fossilized leaves all over the sidewalk. I could’ve sworn that they were impressions, but in the photos, they look more like leaves trapped under a layer of cement. Either way, I was enchanted.

••• The Santa Barbara International Film Festival announced the dates for next year’s festival: March 2-12.

••• Tickets for three Santa Barbara Bowl shows go on sale this Friday, June 18: Haim (September 17), Trevor Noah (September 18), and Van Morrison with Taj Mahal (October 3).

••• Congratulations to Peter for correctly solving last week’s Where in Santa Barbara…?

••• Pu’u Muay Thai martial arts school has moved to the former Killer B Fitness space at 1107 State Street (Anapamu/Figueroa).
