12th and Vine

The intersection referenced by Lieber and Stoller's classic 1952 song Kansas City is no longer even an intersection, the area having been razed in the 1960s to make way for public housing. An ornamental sign post and a faded informational display are all that are left. 18th and Vine, on the other side of interstate 70, remains.

This week Cha-Am, a Thai restaurant that's been in Berkeley for thirty years or so and long a favorite of mine, closed down. The owners are retiring to spend more time with family, and they will be sorely missed.
