Montclair vet’s clients forced to seek new clinic – East Bay Times


Montclair Veterinary Hospital customers are facing the reality of finding a new clinic for their pets. The longtime Montclair Village business (sold to Thrive Pet Healthcare in 2018) closed without warning April 22, indicating the decision to lay off 19 staff members “was not made lightly.”

Now open: A good massage can be hard to find. In the wake of the pandemic, resort spas are often booked several days out. Smaller massage places seem to have a shortage of masseuses as well.

Not Crown Thai Massage in Montclair, though. Newly opened at 6180 Antioch St. and getting good reviews, owner Joe Crown says he has six massage therapists on his staff, all trained in the more than 1,000-year-old art of Thai massage. Think Swedish massage with the added benefit of skilled hands helping your body stretch, gently rock, energize and heal. Or as Crown likes to call it, “East meets West … the perfect combination.”

Speaking of healing, Crown even uses pure 24-karat gold, known for its anti-aging qualities, in some of its treatments. For more details, visit their website at crownthaimassage.com.

Greek fest: The Oakland Greek Festival is coming back after a two-year pandemic hiatus. Festival chair Yanni Limnios says the parishioners at Ascension Cathedral are really excited about this 50th year celebration May 20-22.

“We do a lot of prefestival cooking, and people are happily signing up to volunteer,” Limnios says.

He says they’re sticking to the basics of what they know people love and bringing back everything full-steam. That means Greek music, dancing, gyros, spit-roasted lamb and all those wonderful desserts.

One thing that will be different this year is the schedule. The Oakland Greek Festival won’t open until 4 p.m. Friday because the school groups that used to come on Fridays haven’t started field trips yet. Want more information on the festival? See oaklandgreekfestival.com online.
