What a great picture Traderpup! I still can't believe Sam's is closing. I can't make it this Saturday night but you may see me there this Monday night.

This is bad ju ju. We are going to a restaurant to celebrate before its demise and the staff doesnt even know about it?

Are we sure we have all the facts straight?

Management most certainly should not be leaking information about its closing to the public before notifying the staff.

This is a big group. Its a tough crowd to keep quiet.

I fully agree with you Ookoo. Its good to be sensitive to those that are losing their jobs. Interrogation would be bad. Asking polite questions would be better.

Not telling the staff in the restaurant business is common. The managers usually tell them the day they are closing or dont even tell them. The employees just show up to a locked door and a note. management wants teh staff to work to the end, if some people know they were going out of business they wouldnt even show up.


Your right about that procedure johnnie, but working in this good/lousy business for 20 years, I know the staff knows, because there are no secrets in a restaurant/hotel environment. A lot of times the staff even know things before the management.
Can't wait for Saturday!

All,
It broke my heart to see Sam's close. The place is an icon. I can remember driving by it in my dad's '56 Chevy, back when the '56 was a cheap used car. I used to bring out-of-towners to Sam's and the Glide 'er Inn as part of a mini tour of "the lost California". After all this time, I'm still in shock that Sam's is history.

I'm told that the swordfish neon sign is for sale. I hope it finds a good home.

That's got to be a rumor.

The guys got 5 POSTS kinda obvious he hasn't been around here following the current state of SAM'S.
Otherwise who would drag up this thread from last year and completely miss all the threads about the new mugs, new work by Bamboo Ben, discussion of re-opening dates and so on?
