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.

  • As G20 chases growth goal, members differ on how to get there
    Financial leaders of the Group of 20 top economies remain committed to chasing higher global growth, but were divided on how to achieve it as Germany pushed back at calls from the United States and others for more immediate stimulus. Opening a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers, Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey outlined on Saturday an ambitious agenda of boosting world growth, fireproofing the global banking system and closing tax loopholes for giant multinationals. "We have the opportunity to change the destiny of the global economy," said Hockey, who back in February launched a campaign to add 2 percentage points to world growth by 2018 as part of Australia's presidency of the G20. Just this week, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) slashed its growth forecasts for most major economies.
  • Dollar's rally bad news for oil, multinationals
    We are now seeing a new uptrend develop,” said Adam Sarhan, founder and CEO of Sarhan Capital in New York. If you’re a large tech company and you do a lot of business overseas, that’s not going to help you,” said Larry Glazer, managing partner at Mayflower Advisors in Boston. Lower oil prices favor the consumer, who can pocket the savings or spend the cash in stores.
  • Alibaba surges 38 percent on massive demand in market debut
    Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's (BABA.N) shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class. It was an auspicious debut for the Chinese e-commerce company, which was founded by Jack Ma in his apartment in 1999 and now accounts for 80 percent of online sales in China. About 100 people gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange at Wall and Broad Streets, many of them Chinese tourists with cameras, and they cheered and snapped photos when Ma exited the building with the kung fu star Jet Li. Some 271 million shares changed hands, more than double the turnover on Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) first day last year, although still short of volume for the General Motors Co (GM.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) IPOs.
