Roads into Manzanita are once again open to the public. …
While a handful of Manzanita businesses are temporarily out of commission due to tornado damage, the majority are open for business and happily serving customers.
Blackbird, for instance (pictured – by Justin Baillie Photography), an unique, upscale-yet-casual dining experience incorporating seasonal, local ingredients, will be open during regular hours (5 to 9 p.m.) tonight. Also open today – and this is far from a complete list – are Unfurl, a boutique offering high-quality and environmentally sustainable clothing and accessories, Spa Manzanita (if you’re stressed out, you can get a massage here), finnesterre (featuring a thoughtful selection of goods for your home), Manzanita Grocery & Deli/The Little Apple (essentials, hot entrees and soups, sandwiches made to order, locally made baked goods, meat, seafood and produce and more), Cloud &a Leaf Bookstore (they believe in the printed page) and the Big Wave Cafe (family dining, local seafood, homemade desserts, beer and wine).
… They can use your support, as all small business owners, can, and they’re all good at what they do!
