Downtown News Roundup

First Thursday next week
The monthly downtown artwalk is Aug. 7. The schedule of special events is posted on the First Thursday website, but the document is inaccessible due to technical difficulties. Check back in a few days for a hopeful repair.

Papadakis for sale
The legendary Greek restaurant could be sold if a buyer meets the owners’ high standards, according to Thursday’s Daily Breeze story.

Fountain update
The performance schedule has been updated since last week’s report. The fountain will sing and dance from 4-10 p.m. daily every 15 minutes, with special continuous shows from 12-1 p.m. and 8-9 p.m. It will add a morning performance Fridays - Mondays every 15 minutes from 10 a.m.-12 noon. Background information can be found on the fountain web page. Correction: Last week’s story stated that 1,000 people attended the grand opening ceremony on July 25. A port spokeswoman estimated the crowd at 5,000.
