‘Bring on Paseo’
After spending 25 minutes driving around the Highlands on yet another Saturday night trying in vain to find a parking spot to simply have dinner, I say, “Bring on Paseo.”
We have lived in Carmel Valley for almost 20 years, and have been grateful for Ralphs and, along the way, all the restaurants. (We’re not so grateful for a new upscale movie theatre that is too expensive for a family to attend, even if there were seats available, which there never seem to be). But from repeated attempts to shop or dine on a Saturday night, or a Sunday afternoon, or any weekday lunchtime, and being irritated and frustrated by the inadequacy of the Highlands to handle the sheer numbers of other residents wanting to do the same, it is clear to me, at least, that we have simply out-grown this one venue.
