Well. thanks to the Churchward family and DJ Alex Mejia, the place was hopping last night on Park Street.

There were regulars and new faces.

And as one patron said, “It’s amazing what a coat of paint and some crown molding will do to a place.”

DJ Mejia, an Alameda native now living in Los Angeles, is one of many Alamedans supporting Dance for a Cure, set for November 14 at Eagles Hall. (The event’s online fundraising auction is already doing lots of business.)

Meanwhile, organizer Millie Luz says that Alameda merchants are coming through on a daily basis with new donations and support for the event, which aims to raise funds to benefit breast cancer research. And T-shirt sales for the event are also going well.

    My husband Alex and our dog Honey wandered into this spot last weekend and Alex was really impressed with what a great looking place this has become. I’m looking forward to checking it out!

    Thank you Lisa and Joe for letting Alex Mejia DJ on Thursday for Dance for a Cure…we had so much fun and your bar is so beautiful!!!

    I’m glad the old “Pop Inn” sign is still up. That is a great historic artifact and should remain part of the character of Park St. Best of luck with the new business.
