It's been mentioned that the Kalakala could be a new Top of the Ocean restaurant. That's be cool but would it pencil out? Hmmm.... maybe the city could offer the old spot to the Kalakala so they could do that?

Anyways, I like the old timer cat. He should be a regular.

having a real boat be a restaurant would be way better

i remember in the decade after the burning everyone said there was going to be a great shopping, eating, entertainment boardwalk built there and all this other crap. my brother and i would stare at the old pilings and dream about cool stuff there(h.s. kid b.s.)...then twenty years after those conversations the memorial was erected.
