Perchance to Knit

Fans of the needle arts may already have the day blocked off on their calendars, but the rest of you should know that this weekend marks the debut of another chic yarn shop in the Lou: Knitty Couture opens the doors at 6148 Delmar (right near the Pageant) this Saturday from 11-6. Brands promised in the new space include Louet, Manos, Jamieson Shetland, Fleece Artist and much more. Also intriguing? The website's promise of "local, handmade pastries." (Maybe that's to keep the non-knitters all sugared up and happy?)

Having made the move back east from a long stint in West County, Candicci's has packed it in. Yesterday was the Clayton eatery's last day of service; no definite word yet on the next move for owner Bob Candice, who might parlay his years of experience into a consultant or general management gig elsewhere.

More Curry, Less Hurry

From the folks who brought you downtown's "Curry in a Hurry," a finer room will soon be unveiled. Thali, a new Indian restaurant that will be a from-the-menu type of place, will debut in late November in Olivette, on Page Ave. near Dielman Road.

Sail On By

Word is that furniture/accessories/décor store The Home Port will shutter its Central West End location, leaving only the home office in Union to carry on a largely Internet-based biz. Maybe there'll be a big sale on teak-wood tables and such? And we'll miss that sweet shop dog.
