The Cheapest Ocean View in Town—But There’s a Catch

••• Ever wonder what an ocean-view (so to speak) plot costs at the Santa Barbara Cemetery on Channel Drive? Broker Suzanne Perkins sent out an email offering “One Cremation Plot for 1 or 2 urns, at the Santa Barbara Cemetery, located in the Ocean View area with both ocean and mountain views. Last one sold in this much desired area was over two years ago. Valued over $30,000.00 – Open to Reasonable Offers.” That’s probably not it pictured above; if you’re interested, contact [email protected].

••• From the Montecito Association: “One of the larger projects ahead of us is the Randall Road Debris Basin Project. The County’s Flood Control District has scheduled a design workshop. Their design consultant will present preliminary design considerations and receive input from the community. The design workshop is scheduled for Monday, November 4 from 6-8pm and will be held at the County Administration Building Board Hearing Room, Fourth Floor 105 East Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara. The design workshop will be broadcast live on the County’s Youtube channel, CSBTV20.” This is more interesting than it might seem, because it will have publicly accessible walking trails.

••• “Small Fall I” is a lovely 12″x12″ painting by Joseph Goldyne, part of Sullivan Goss‘s current “Mixology” show.

••• 859 Picacho Lane is a 1930s Chester Caroja house that needs updating. Here’s hoping that the amazing original parquet floor—which broker Crysta Metzger said came from a Russian czar’s estate—survives intact.

••• This Friday and Saturday, September 27 and 28: a rare chance to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch on the big screen, at the Riviera Theatre. (It’s a “4K restoration,” whatever that is.) The showings are at 9:45 p.m., but the film is only 95 minutes long.
