Think the service will get any better?

Edit: Not implying that any of that is his fault, just something that crossed my mind since management should ultimately be held responsible for sub-par service.

That would suck to lose that...but really what chain would continue the tradition of not only closing a bit early, but allowing its patrons to drink beers after hours. When I first moved out here I went every week since my social calendar sucked ass. Not that it's too much better now.

The article states they will continue the tradition of the slideshows. Hope that includes the atmosphere.

I've always gotten good service in there!

i once rented skis and skins from them for a BC hut trip... they were both brand new and I dropped them off a week later they were beaten to shit. They called me pissed but whatever they were rentals - haven't been back yet....That is all. Cool shop though. Morgan Patterson
