But at the coastal commission’s Nov. 13 meeting in Half Moon Bay, the panel decided to bring the permit to a halt over what its staff said were concerns about water supply and sea level rise

Ed Ciliberti purchased the caboose in April 2018 with plans to redo it and open it as a gift shop and a display for railroad memorabilia. To get ready for it to open, Ciliberti had the railcar’s roof replaced and fumigation done. He also obtained a lease from the City of Monterey so he could keep the 45-foot-long car on Cannery Row. “It will be open in January with railroad memorabilia for sale and a museum highlighting the history of the railcar,” including before it was converted to a caboose in the 1940s and came to Cannery Row in 1968,

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is hosting its first-ever adult sleepover, which means the kids are going to grandma and grandpa’s house.

The aquarium is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a 1980s themed slumber party. It’s called “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of Seaweed): An ’80s Sleepover Party,” a nod to the 1983 Eurythmics song, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” according to The San Luis Obispo Tribune.

Tickets cost $175 for non-members and $150 for aquarium members. They’re on the high-end but it includes a build-your-own-taco dinner, an ice cream sundae bar, alcohol, and breakfast in the morning.

A technology being deployed along Cannery Row is able to tell businesses how many people are walking down the sidewalk in front of their stores at any particular time of the day and even what gender the pedestrians are.

The device and software, called ViMo, is a vision-based sensor with AI analytics that can, for example, tell a business that 200 men of an average age walk past the store on Tuesdays between noon and 1 p.m. A retailer could then adjust its marketing to target that particular customer base.

The software does not use facial recognition.

Swimmers Cross Bay With Proper Teatime

English Channel Rules – Must stop for tea.

The 36-year-old swimmer and his brother Joe Zemaitis set off from Santa Cruz around 7 p.m. on Tuesday hoping to become the first men to complete the 25.1 mile swim across the bay using “English Channel” rules. Those rules state that the swimmer must be unassisted and cannot wear a wet suit.

Only John was able to complete the swim. His older brother, Joe, had to be pulled from the water after showing signs of hypothermia about a mile offshore from Monterey.
