The Zaca Fire may nearly be contained, but its effects continue to burn one beloved landmark. Though Cold Spring Tavern, located at 5995 Stagecoach Road, was closed for only one week, business continues to take a huge hit. July and August, generally the tavern’s best months, were essentially lost, and it’s in need of our support. Tana Pagaling said she thinks people may be worried it’s too smoky (it’s not), concerned that the fire’s really close (it’s not), or daunted by signs on the 154-which, incidentally, is open in both directions-advising that there might be delays (there aren’t); but we think folks ought to know that it’s business as usual at the tavern-same business hours, same live music, same Sunday afternoons with the same, delicious, freshly sliced tri-tip sandwiches and all.
