Yesterday the BOCC selected one of the finalists to manage the pier, restaurant, bar, shop, etc.
Still subject to contract negotiation, so not a done deal - yet.
It is a consortium that includes the brothers from Ye Olde Brothers Brewery. Guess we know what beer will be on tap!

Link to their proposal: (do the "click here" under "Growing Santa Rosa Enterprises")

The other finalists were a group from Johnny Huston's, and a TC's Front Porch led group.
A fourth consortium withdrew.
May recall that TC's was to run the restaurant under the current pier contact, but pulled out or was let go.
Cheers, Pete
Go Vikings!

There is a lot of fishy stuff (excuse the pun), especially financials regarding the "Fishing Pier".

Either the operators can't really make a go of it, or they upset SRC, or [insert bad word]...

I only hear rumours about TC's and the pier, but it is interesting that many a business appears to have overreached when they take on operations at the pier...
