Vista Pub owner Raymond Ross believes in offering a few items but making them the best.
 

With a one page menu that contains only 12 items, ordering a meal at Brookings’ newest pub seems to be ridiculously simple – until you factor in the 25 different items offered as “add-ons” to the 1/3 pound burger that is prominently displayed at the top of the menu.

Vista Pub, located on Highway 101 across from Subway, is billed as a pub and a meeting place by owner Raymond Ross.

“We want this to be a healthy part of people’s life,” he said. “A place where a family can come for lunch or dinner, or where a group of friends can get together to have a beer and mingle.”

After growing up in Brookings and graduating from Brookings-Harbor High School in 2000, Ross put himself through college by working at a pub in McCall, Idaho.

  • Only a payrolls surprise could shake stalling market
    Unless next week's payrolls report is an outlier, investors should expect a continuation of the directionless market that has kept the S&P 500 trading in place for most of the year. Should July post strong job gains, it would point to an economy strong enough for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates for the first time in almost a decade.
  • Pacific Rim free trade talks fall short of deal
    Pacific Rim trade ministers failed to clinch a deal on Friday to free up trade between a dozen nations after a dispute flared up over auto trade between Japan and North America, New Zealand dug in over dairy trade and no agreement was reached on monopoly periods for next-generation drugs. Trade ministers from the 12 nations negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which would stretch from Japan to Chile and cover 40 percent of the world economy, fell just short of a deal at talks on the Hawaiian island of Maui but were confident an agreement was within reach. "The undergrowth has been cleared away in the course of this meeting in a manner that I would say is streets ahead of any of the other ministerial meetings that we have had," New Zealand Trade Minister Tim Groser said.
  • U.S. wage growth brakes in second-quarter; consumer sentiment slips
    U.S. labor costs in the second quarter recorded their smallest increase in 33 years as workers earned less in commissions and bonuses, in what appeared to be a temporary wage growth setback against the backdrop of diminishing labor market slack. The surprisingly smaller rise reported by the Labor Department on Friday did little to temper expectations that the Federal Reserve is set to raise interest rates later this year. The job market is fast approaching full employment.
