Time to take another (outdoor) lunch at The Don. Didn't know the owner was so generous (oh yeah - this is where there have been massive free community holiday dinners for the community needy over the years - Right?)

My guess is that 'a startup success' among the many net-workers that always inhabited the Red Rock over the last decades - became the generous buyer. But of course - now moving into 'for profit' land. Helps focus on 'balance the books'.

Steven Nelson: your comments seem so mean-spirited. This is a lovely thing that has happened to Red Rock Coffee, and its staff, customers, vendors, neighbors, and former owner, The Highway Community.

So sad that you bash on John Akkaya for giving wonderful Thanksgiving meals to thousand of people over the years.
