OPINION

Sarah Winchester’s Legacy of Shopping Centers and Cinemas By Dan Pulcrano @pulcrano/ January 31, 2018

Known as one of the most haunted places in history, the sprawling Winchester mansion is making the most of its big break in Hollywood

Get ready for the second century of Winchester myth-making as a new horror movie brands San Jose’s best-known tourist attraction as “the most haunted house in history.” The new claim will place it in such distinguished company as the Amityville House, the Villisca Ax Murder House, Southern Italy’s Castle of Otranto and the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King’s The Shining. No proof is offered to support the boast, but hey, this is 2018. The throngs clomping through the twisted corridors of our city’s most infamous gift to popular culture will surely grow. Bigger than the crowd at the largest inauguration in history. The Winchester Mystery House won’t reveal its attendance, an order that comes “from up top,” according to spokesman Jake Williams. Ninety-five years after Sarah Winchester’s death, her side project of a house—the shambolically designed 160-room Queen Anne Victorian whose actual name was Llanada Villa—draws eye rolls from locals but continues to hoover tourism dollars. The Mystery House is making the most of it, meanwhile, screening trailers for the movie at the end of its tours. Its fast-cut editing and screams of terror will leave an imprint on the collective psyche—plan to hug your kids at bedtime if they see the movie—further monetizing a cheesy yarn that birthed one of the valley’s biggest real estate plays, and now a major

THINGS TO DO

Harlem Reimagined: San Jose exhibit examines changing neighborhood By Linda Zavoral Posted on Feb 8, 2018 What’s next for Harlem? A team of photojournalists — students from San Jose State University, George Washington University and other schools — spent four days in New York City’s black mecca to capture the pulse of the neighborhood as residents grapple with gentrification. The result is “Harlem Reimagined,” a 100-image exhibit that will open Feb. 8 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose and run through March 31 before moving on to New York. Admission is free; the show is displayed on the library’s second floor. A total of 45 students, educators, activists and locals, led by SJSU associate professor Duane Michael Cheers, spent four days in October, morning till night, chronicling the changes. They photographed longtime shopkeepers and residents new and old, namesake boulevards, legendary clubs and restaurants, and the new wave of non-locally-owned businesses.

In "Harlem Reimagined," student photojournalists captured the changing cultural and commercial landscape of the nation's most significant African-American community. (Photo courtesy of "Harlem Reimagined," San Jose State University)

“Harlem remains a busy and soulful AfricanAmerican village — but one that is absorbing an unsettling wave of gentrification,” visiting professor and participant David E. Early wrote of their findings. “Left unchecked, the movement threatens to wipe out long-term residents, along with the schools, churches, businesses, neighborhoods, entertainment venues and social justice organizations that have defined African-American achievement for decades.” The project took its cultural and historic inspiration from the works of James Van Der Zee, the famous photographer whose works told the story of the Harlem Renaissance.

La Rinconada Bar at The Catamount, Los Gatos

Applebee’s has a new tropical drink promotion for February. (Paul Sakuma/AP archives)

A cocktail for a buck? Here’s Applebee’s new promotion By Linda Zavoral Posted on Feb 2, 2018 After finding success with buck-a-cocktail promotions in October and December, the Applebee’s restaurants are back with a new concoction for February. Called the Dollarmama, this riff on a Bahama Mama is designed to offer a “winter getaway in a glass.” It’s made with white rum and a new Applebee’s proprietary mix of pineapple, orange and lime juices with a touch of coconut and cherry.

The vibe: Sleek and sexy. The bar at Ray Tang’s South Bay hot spot is topped with Carrara marble and everywhere you look there are chic bronze accents, from the overhead lights to the tiny tables nestled along the glass wall and the gray-blue rattan chairs. The California-inspired bar menu offers an impressive array of proteins and nibbles that qualify as dinner, and the comprehensive cocktail program (low proof, barrel-aged, signature and classic) will keep you sipping into the night. The dish: The upscale Ahi Tuna Poke ($17) is a lovely take on the fast-casual trend, with its delicate dressing of citrus and sesame. Get one of those, along with Spiced Lamb Meatballs ($11) with fresh, minted yogurt and the generous Parmesan Truffle Fries ($9). Hitting a movie? Time your date night to La Rinconada’s Social Hour (4-6 p.m.) and those fries will only cost you $5. The details: Open for drinks and bar bites Tuesday-Saturday at 50 University Ave., Los Gatos; www.thecatamount.com.

Customers may buy the drink for a dollar all month long. No other purchase is required. Applebee’s kicked off the cocktail promotion with a $1 margarita in October and a $1 Long Island iced tea in December.

Beloved Professor Dies

Joseph O'Kane, Jr. June 21, 1952 January 17, 2018 - San Jose

Former Film Commissioner for the City of San Jose, Joe O'Kane passed away peacefully in his sleep on January 17, 2018. For more than two decades, O'Kane promoted San Jose as a film and video destination. He brought many productions to San Jose, generating revenue and publicity for the city he was born in and loved. Calling Joe a "film buff" doesn't come close. You could ask him a question about any movie ever made and he would know the answer. As a writer, publisher, teacher, and theater owner, Joe was most admired for his creativity, mentoring skills, and sense of humor. He valued loyalty, problem solving, and family above all. Joe attended Mitty High School. At San Jose State University, he studied film making and marketing. In 1978, Joe

created the San Jose Film Commission and later helped establish the San Jose (Cinequest) Film Festival. He published Locations Magazine, and Film Clips, a newsletter for Bay Area film and video makers, and he produced the Joey Awards; an annual awards ceremony honoring local film and video talent. Before starting his career as Film Commissioner, Joe was active in CYO and was co-founder of Camera One Theater. He was past president and board member of the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, and he taught film making at San Jose State. His support and encouragement of students, family, and friends was renown. For twenty years, he publicized San Jose at the Cannes Film Festival, where he was well known and much admired. He also served several terms as president of the International Association of Film Commissioners and received the Arthur Loew Crystal Vision Award. Predeceased by his beloved wife Cynthia Filarca, Joe is survived by his proudest accomplishment—his daughter Clare, and by his siblings Colleen, Sean, and Teresa, and their families. We will miss his laughter at the table.
