      The Citizen Cake spot is being taken over by the Absinthe folks, so not there.

    2. Makes sense....nothing like beeing close to your clients....

      1. Yesssss!

        Don't have to report Saturday AM in Berk or SF to get the goods.

        These folks are MEAT GENIUSES !

          This sounds like a pure business decision - NAPA location was not a good choice...

            You're speculating that they are closing down Napa, which I doubt. They have a good amount of space there for production.

              Not sure where you get the "speculating" part from my comment but that is not what I'm saying - pure business point of view. NAPA is a "nice" location on Sat/Sun but on week days is sloooow, COPIA next door is kaput, rent next to and at the Oxbow is probably up there (I'm willing to bet that few other Oxbow tenants will not make it - not wishing that they don't just the way things bee going with the economy - Rotisserie place is gone).
              As far as space is concerned the place they occupy right now was too small the day they moved in - it''s way too small for what they need/could use.....
