Thank you so much Louise Hanson!!

I agree, a map would be most helpful. But just hearing the news is really great, thanks Indy :)

Wow, as an R/C hobbyist who went out of my way to support this shop, it's pretty insulting to be thrown under the bus by this guy as a big part of the reason for his shop closing. I guess I should have just gone ahead and ordered everything on the internet, since obviously my business was not only not valued, but is now blamed for the failure of this shop. Wow.

Myself and plenty of other R/C hobbyists made it a special point to patronize the shop, almost always paying a higher price than we could get elsewhere (online or at other hobby shops), specifically to support a local downtown business. And this despite the fact that we were frequently stymied by a lack of selection and lack of availability.

Haters gonna hate... I have a feeling Eureka is going to be there for the long haul, like CPK next door. I found the food delicious, the Friday night ambience really fun, and overall the experience great. Yes - we waited for a table. Yes, some of the beer comes in different sizes. No - I am not a person overwhelmed by such trivialities when the overall experience is so fun and warm.

Definitely safer in the water with the sharks.

Since we're all speculating here, I'm guessing it was some kind of initiation.

The sharks are always out there whether we happen to see them or not...

Etna you're way out of line and clearly haven't dealt with the aftermath of stroke - yet. How lucky for you. Why not try reading up about stroke treatment and how crucial it is to treat strokes as soon as possible after they happen - there's basically a two hour window. This prompt treatment is crucial to ensure the stroke victim's life AFTER the stroke is a worthwhile as possible.

This is cool! Glad to see a company from Santa Barbara giving this a go. My uncle ran a container sales and rental business for years near Modesto. It's really cool to see people getting involved in the customization side of these. I wish Container Alliance the best of luck!

@sbconcerned I think the idea is more so that Portlanders can come vacation here for the summer (we need those dollars, right?).

And if you like SB, I don't see what you dislike about Portland? Kinda like the pot calling the kettle black.

Wait, what's wrong with more mountain biking again? Are you familiar with the work of our local SB Mountain Trail Volunteers? A bunch of mountain bikers in that group who work hard to repair and improve area trails for the benefit of *all* users.

Any human use of wildlands creates an impact. The important thing is to manage and mitigate that impact. Prohibition of mountain biking is not a realistic accommodation.

LOL @ corporate coffee. French Press, people. Plenty of local artwork and the coffee is at least a couple orders of magnitude better.
