Eastern-cuisine restaurant will open on 4th St. N

By Times Staff Writer
Published December 16, 2007



Those baffled by the banner will find out in January just what is going into the storefront at 6931 Fourth St. N. Tanglin's, a spinoff of downtown's Moon Under Water in the form of an Eastern-cuisine restaurant, will open soon. Owner Alan Lucas said Tanglin's is named for a road in Singapore but also for a famous British club there. Tanglin's will feature a new creation, the bombaly, which Lucas says is a kind of Indian pizza served on flat bread with a curry sauce instead of a marinara. Tanglin's also will have other curry dishes, as well as sandwiches and salads.


Blockbuster to close store, rework model

Blockbuster is consolidating and closing one of its older stores as it reworks its business model. The store at 4301 Fourth St. N will stop renting movies Jan. 6, begin a sale of its inventory and close its doors a week later. Blockbuster representatives said their lease was up on the 19-year-old store, and they thought they could serve the market with stores at 194 37th Ave. N and 9300 Fourth St. N. Blockbuster also is adding a few stores and ramping up digital delivery techniques and other services that will still require physical stores.
