Photo of the Day: Another Restaurant Bites the Dust

Peach Garden has moved on after years a block away from Charlie Hong Kong.

What is your favorite restaurant that is gone?

Were you a fan of Peach Garden at 1733 Seabright Ave.?

Your headline is not only offensive but also in poor taste! As a business owner, consumer and community development participant and contributor is hard to witness, how many wishful people have invested their life savings so to give something back to the place and the comunity, which was perhaps the first to embrace and welcomed them. Making the decision to close a business is the hardest to a person, who without pre-guarantees of gain, has given it all for others to enjoy, having but just a willing to work and sacrifice many times, luxury, family time, health and relaxation, only to bring and give happiness to those someday loyal custumers ..some may become better than family! . Unless you are a supporter of those "big corporate daddies" who would not give a dam about who goes or stays or why, then you lacked empathy and support (even it was late!) "bitting the dust" its pretty hard to absorb as a "thank you, mr biz owner" for all the contribution, effort, income you brought to our town while you were prosperous...how about...we are sorry to see another place close but thank you ...you owners for the meals you cooked for us and for having help keep our streets full with consumers so that all our taxes can improve our beloved community. We wish for all those that remain a safer and faster sucess.

I agree with Betsy, as business owners it's a tough climate and the cavalier attitude is in such poor taste. Randall Graham of the lovely Bonney Doon Winery has also closed his doors to the fantastically well thought out dining spot on the Westside. It's sad to see the meager food options in our neighborhoods leaving. As a co-founder of a non-profit art space, our own recent move was a tough one brought on by financial necessity. The small business spirit is anything but easy in a town that talks about supporting it's local underdog, then uses the parking meters punitively as a way to police how long shoppers might actually enjoy the downtown experience. Short sighted in an under statement. It hurts everyone except those penning the tickets. A little good press around anything right now would serve us all well. Peach Garden will be missed, and so will the other local businesses as the quality of our neighborhoods change. I hope there's a new wave of entrepreneurs that can usher in a new life blood, as our community deserves a better representation than the backhanded article written here today.

I don't think I was being cavalier. I'm sad about losing it. I got chow fun there all the time.
