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.

  • Asian shares skid as bullish Fed take investors by surprise
    Asian shares extended losses on Thursday after the Federal Reserve took an upbeat view on the U.S. economy and signalled that it remains firmly on track to raise interest rates this year despite an uncertain global outlook. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) slipped 0.4 percent, while MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan extended its drop and was down 1 percent. The Fed said that international developments would be taken into consideration, but noted that falling energy prices boosted household purchasing power even as it acknowledged a decline in certain inflation measures. "The markets were a bit surprised that the Fed was more hawkish than expected, especially considering that many people had thought that the board members this year would be more dovish than last year's," said Hideyuki Ishiguro, senior strategist at Okasan Securities.
  • Fed upbeat on U.S. economy, cites strong job gains
    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday said the U.S. economy was expanding "at a solid pace" with strong job gains in a signal that the central bank remains on track with its plans to raise interest rates this year. The Fed repeated it would be "patient" in deciding when to raise benchmark borrowing costs from zero, though it also acknowledged a decline in certain inflation measures. After a two-day meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee, policymakers struck an upbeat tone on the U.S. economy's prospects and held to their view that energy-led weakness in inflation would dissipate. "The committee, in fact, was downright bullish on current economic conditions and the outlook," said Paul Edelstein, director of financial economics at IHS Global Insight.
  • Facebook tops Wall Street revenue target in fourth quarter
    Facebook Inc's (FB.O) revenue grew 49 percent in the fourth quarter, as mobile advertising growth helped the world's largest Internet social network beat Wall Street's targets for earnings and sales. Facebook shares fell about 2.6 percent in after-hours trade after vacillating above and below the closing price. Facebook's business has boomed thanks to its mobile ads for smartphones and tablets. Its success contrasts with other established Internet companies such as Google Inc (GOOGL.O) and Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O), which have struggled as advertisers shift more and more to mobile devices from personal computers.
