Is all this on the up and up?

By March 7, 2011

In Wendy Weitzel’s business column Sunday, she notes the closing of Aioli Bodega EspaƱola and that, according to the owner’s son, Aioli was “doing pretty well” and that “his dad didn’t want to leave, but the lease was not renewed.”

In the next paragraph, Wendy states that “in Aioli’s place is coming Our House restaurant and lounge by proprietors Charlie Swanson and Jon Sanchez. Swanson, owner of The Graduate, is married to (newly elected) City Councilwoman Rochelle Swanson. Sanchez and his wife, Cary Arnold are Davis real estate agents.”

I hope someone can reassure me that no good-ol’-boys, business-as-usual, back-room deals were made.
