Business 7-31

The Santa Barbara City Council on 7/29 denied Bricks Cafe’s appeal of the Police and Fire Commission’s decision to reject the State Street nightspot’s application for a dance permit. Owner Wallace Ronchietto has twice been cited for violating his Alcohol Beverage Control license, which mandates no amplified music or live entertainment at the front of his establishment. The commission suggested Ronchietto apply for a different license that would permit a non-amplified band playing for a dance floor. (/bricks)

Montecito’s Tony Rose Camera will close at the end of July, according to owner Steve Boyajian, but not before holding a 50-75 percent sale. Boyajian blamed doubled rent and steep competition from online camera retailers for the closure. (/tonyrose)
