Announcing the sale of Pajaro Street.

March 24th with be the last evening that the Grill will be open, with a grand opening for the new restaurant, Bajas Bar and Grill, scheduled tentatively on May 5th, giving the new owners time to upgrade the restaurant. I see this as a win, win, win. A win for the community gaining an upgraded restaurant with expanded hours and choice, a long history for the new owners to build on, and a chance for me to pursue my expanding career as an author. I will remain the restaurant landlord and unofficial consultant. A lot of doors have been opening for me as an artist and as an author and now I will have a chance to kick them open and see where they take me. The purchasing partnership were born and raised in Salinas and Carlos has been already running his colorful, health oriented wholesale ready-to-eat food out of the Pajaro Street kitchen. Carlos Lopez and Ricardo Mendoza are also life long friends. The exact make-up of the opening menu is still being discussed though they are planning being particularly oriented to fresh seafood, with a mix from the grill, ceviche and sushi. .
I will turn over the keys a month short of the twentieth anniversary from the day I bought the building and started its conversion to a restaurant. I feel so much gratitude to the community and all of you for your support and patience with all our ups and downs. I know my wife Lisa is looking down and smiling at us mortals. Not only about all the fond memories of love and good times, but also that the restaurant will morph into yet another life.
I hope all you locals will come visit at least one more time these next three weeks so I can spoil you one more time and get one more hug. Mother Marian and I are offering all the restaurant art at 50% off for these final weeks in hopes of greatly reducing our inventory. That's right, all art at half price and we will also accept payment on time. Here is your chance to obtain that work you have admired at half the price!!!
I will remain living on site, though my writing career will be commanding a lot of world travel. I also plan on spending more time in Tijuana and San Diego, which became a second home a dozen years ago.
Thanks so much for your patronage and hopefully I will see you over this final month of the grill,
y Gracias muchas,
hugs, Deamer
