Business 2-26

Cabbies met with cops for the second in a series of discussions about conflicts regarding traffic tickets incurred while picking up fares on State Street late at night. While cabbies also voiced their disapproval at a general lack of designated stopping areas downtown, the officers suggested that cabbies meet with City Council members and the Downtown Organization to propose specific law changes.

SIMA Property Management evicted the Wine Cask on 2/17 after “several months” of unpaid rent on the Santa Barbara eatery’s 813 Anacapa Street location. L.A. restaurateur Bernard Rosensen bought the historic wine and restaurant business from Doug Margerum more than two years ago. Wine Cask’s demise, according to former employees, was due to poor management decisions, heightened competition, and the lousy economy. Margerum has expressed hope for a possible reopening.
