New name adorns exterior.

Steve Yeng and his family, the owners of both the OB Noodle House on Cable and Bar 1502 over on Niagara, had moved into the old Gallagher’s on Newport Avenue. They held an opening night under the old name not too long ago – which a bunch of us attended.

And now there is a new handle on the place.

New name is edgy for some.

The new name: “The Holding Company” or “THC” and “1502” (the positions of the alphabet for “O” and “B”).

Some locals find the new name very edgy, even controversial due to the obvious double layer of meaning. But Yeng is not fazed.  After all, this is the year that Californians will (probably) vote to legalize marijuana.

Open for business.

A painter was busy on Monday making finishing touches on the new signage. He told me that the old shamrock will be coming off. Also, there are new craft beers, an interior wall was removed, new paint, new walls, new signs.

Steve told me by phone this morning that there will be a restaurant and a music venue. The restaurant will be for the entire family, and he will be sound-proofing the bottom floor, which is horrible, acoustically, he said.

He’s also planning an “OB Country Night” of country and honky-donk sounds very soon.

The new name is lame and tacky.
