San Antonio shopping center owned by company tied to Nate Paul heading for foreclosure

A shopping center that was once home to dance hall Midnight Rodeo — and is owned by an affiliate of World Class Holdings, a company founded by Nate Paul — may be headed for foreclosure next month.

Paul is the Austin businessman at the center of the scandal currently engulfing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

The property at 12260 Nacogdoches is set to be auctioned off Nov. 3, Bexar County property records show, although county officials have repeatedly postponed foreclosure sales due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sonora Bank first pushed to foreclose in December and subsequently filed notices again this spring and summer, most recently last month. The bank’s promissory note is for roughly $4.7 million.

Two other San Antonio properties owned by entities connected to World Class were slated for foreclosure this summer.

Lenders sought to foreclose on warehouses at 639 Lanark on Aug. 4, a sale that was

‘The beauty of San Francisco is the diversity’

Forest fires, sky high rents and mono culture have given San Francisco a bad name, but Dubliner Keith O’Reilly has made the city at the Golden Gate his home – for the second time.

After completing his Leaving Cert in 1991 and studying marketing at the Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), O’Reilly decided to join his many Irish friends in San Francisco to work as a DJ.

“In the 1990s, San Francisco was a completely different place than it is now. You’d hear Irish voices all the time and see familiar faces. A lot of the Irish people were working odd jobs and making music or art. It had that west coast vibe, which was on the cusp of something and the energy was incredible.”

O’Reilly says, because not everyone worked in tech, rents were a lot cheaper and you could afford to live in the city and hang out

Man arrested in assaults of 2 elderly women in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A man suspected of beating two elderly women in separate attacks last month in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood has been arrested, authorities said.

Officers arrested Michael Turner, 34, last week in the assault of a 78-year-old woman on the morning of September 15th and a 71-year-old woman a week later, KPIX-TV reported.

Police said the 78-year-old woman was walking on a sidewalk when she was struck in the head, causing her to fall and lose consciousness. The woman was taken to the hospital where doctors determined she suffered a broken hip, San Francisco police said Monday.

Following Turner’s arrest, investigators determined he was also linked to an assault of a 71-year-old woman on September 22nd. In that case, police said the woman was walking near her son when she was attacked. Police said the son, who was walking ahead of her mother, turned around and found

San Francisco’s One Market Restaurant is now a NY-style deli pop up

The pandemic continues to demand ingenuity from restaurateurs around the Bay Area, especially in San Francisco, where fine dining restaurants are being hit particularly hard.

In short, it takes chutzpah to pivot. And One Market Restaurant’s pivot is going to make two bubbes very proud.

Tomorrow, in a one-month experiment that’s poised for success, the sophisticated Financial District restaurant with the iconic Embarcadero views is changing the bulk of its menu from fancy farm-to-table to casual New York-style deli, with hot pastrami, smoked brisket on twice-baked challah or rye bread and matzo ball soup.

“Mark (Dommen) and I have been fiddling around with this idea for a long time, and our goal is to bring the essence of New York deli food to San Francisco in a sophisticated yet accessible way,” One Market’s owner, Mike Dellar, said in a press release Tuesday.

Mark ‘n Mike’s is rooted in both men’s

San Francisco Fashion Community Week virtually celebrates diverse global couture

This year, San Francisco’s Fashion Community Week moved from the runway to the screen, presented as the New Era Virtual Fashion Week from Sept. 24-27. The week featured two days of runway shows where both local and international emergent designers could showcase their diverse collections for the season. 

Friday’s “California Dreaming” runway intended to capture the essence of the West Coast, the best of the designers embracing sunshine, bright prints and the laid-back nature the state is famous for.

Designers Lourdes and June from Philippine brand Julour offered a minimalistic, muted take on the runway theme, with no shortage of ’60s-inspired outfits and white-centered color palettes. Julour successfully captured the softer, bohemian vibe of California, including puffed sleeves and simple silhouettes. A more eccentric look — in comparison to the rest of the collection — was also included, featuring a sequined, dark blue shawl paired with a doily-patterned navy dress

Jimmy Brionez, 24, was sentenced to four years in prison Tuesday for robbing a San Mateo jewelry store while armed in 2018, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Brionez pleaded no contest to felony robbery charges while his alleged accomplice, Edward Romero, 23, rejected an offer that would’ve put him in prison for seven years. Romero’s case is set for jury trial on Feb. 26.

Brionez and Romero remain in custody on no bail status and $750,000 bail respectively.   

The two allegedly stole $130,000 worth of jewelry from the Shane Co. jewelry store located at 690 Concar Drive, on Oct. 30, 2018.

They entered the store at 2:30 p.m. and ordered everyone to the ground while Brionez was armed with a semiautomatic handgun and Romero smashed the display cases with a hammer, according to prosecutors. There were 21 employees and customers in the store at the time of the alleged
