The Salty Dog Coffee Bar expanding services

Larry Jackson and Jill Fairchild, the current co-owners (with a third silent partner) of Salty Dog Coffee Bar at the Port of Brookings Harbor, have announced plans in process for remodeling and expanding services to make their popular hangout even more user-friendly.

Jackson and Fairchild, who took possession of the coffee bar Nov. 1, 2009, are expanding seating areas, adding additional comfortable seating, including a comfy couch, and outside chairs and tables to allow clients to enjoy the perfect harbor view.

They emphasized that Salty Dog is no longer just a coffee bar. Milkshakes, smoothies, and custom drinks of many flavors are available in addition to blended hot and cold coffee drinks, plus daily homemade fresh pastries, Taylor Sausage hoagie dogs, brots and bratwurst.

“We also have T-shirts, sweatshirts, a new free delivery program, and karaoke,” Fairchild said.

She explained that delivery is available to business owners who would like to provide a special treat for their employees. “With a $20 minimum order, we will provide free delivery to their offices,” she said.

Jackson and Fairchild and Fairchild’s son and daughter, Ronnie and Karen, who help keep the place running, are even more excited about karaoke nights planned for the first and third Friday of each month. Karaoke nights will be open to young people ages 16 and older, or younger if accompanied by a parent, and Eric and April Gothard will be on hand to help out and add to the excitement.

“We want to provide a non-alcohol, fun place to be,” Fairchild said. “And on holiday weekends we will have extended outdoor barbecue for the hot dogs,” Jackson added.

Fairchild and Jackson are proud of Salty Dog’s recognition as the 2010 Readers’ Choice for fun place to be and best coffee. They insist that their establishment is going to be even more fun, and will continue to offer the best coffee drinks with ever-expanding choices available.

  • Look to energy names for global demand clues
    Profit growth expectations for S&P 500 energy companies have fallen more than any other sector - from a forecast of 13.8 percent on July 1 to the current 1.8 percent, Thomson Reuters data showed. With various names due to report next week, including Exxon Mobil (XOM.N), Chevron (CVX.N), ConocoPhillips (COP.N) and National Oilwell Varco (NOV.N), there are hopes that executives will suggest that the fall in oil and share prices has overstated the outlook for these names. The energy sector over the last 20 weeks has spiraled from being the market leader to now ranking as its most distant laggard, according to a Relative Rotation Graph study, which analyzes the relative performance of the constituents of an index. The S&P energy sector up about 6 percent from Oct. 15, while the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent from its Oct. 15 low and the benchmark index on Friday posted its best weekly gain since early January 2013.

  • Exclusive: Ford to overhaul Lincoln brand, this time with big bucks
    Ford Motor Co's (F.N) new chief executive, Mark Fields, is giving the automaker's long-moribund Lincoln brand what his predecessor Alan Mulally never could: a little love and a lot of cash. Lincoln, a storied Detroit brand which Ford has owned since 1922, has been in a swoon for the past two decades, leaving dealers and customers wondering if Ford management had left the brand for dead. Now, with the renewed backing of Executive Chairman Bill Ford and the company's board, Fields has committed the automaker to a multiyear, multibillion-dollar overhaul of Lincoln that includes a significant investment in a new premium vehicle platform that will underpin several future Lincoln vehicles, four sources told Reuters. Ford could spend $5 billion or more over the next five years to revive Lincoln, revamp its product portfolio and reposition it as a true competitor to such global luxury leaders as Daimler AG's (DAIGn.DE) Mercedes-Benz and BMW AG (BMWG.DE), the sources said.
