    Default FRESNO CABO WABO TO CLOSE DOORS!

    Fresno Wabo: The end has come

    Sammy Hagar pulled the plug on Fresno Wabo today. Here's an update:

    Sammy Hagar announced Wednesday that he was severing ties with developer Milt Barbis and pulling his Cabo Wabo brand out of Fresno.
    "The license has been terminated and the location will no longer be a Cabo Wabo come 2009," Hagar said in a statement. "I have always stood for providing an exceptional experience for my fans and associating myself with like-minded business partners. If the owners of the current license in Fresno intend to keep the location open and change the concept to something entirely different, it will not be under the Cabo Wabo brand

    I thought I had read an article months ago how the place was not doing well. Sam is doing the right thing business-wise for his brand.

    I heard that the place was doing well, just that Sammy was having major issues with the guy who purchased the license to the franchise name. The guy apparently wasn't paying people.

    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    Never a good location to begin with. The raisin capital of the world? The third playah in the Eastern Cal power trio of royal shitholes (for those unversed, that would be Fresno, Bakersfield, and Stockton).

    Two words, Sam.

    Vegas Wabo.

    Though I'm sure St. Louis would embrace a Wabo joint as well.

    Are you serious? The Republican POTUS has given away 700 billion in bail outs. And is going to still bail out the auto industry after the people voted not to. Like 8 Democrats voted against (or didn't vote) the auto bail out. Why the fuck would you blame Republicans when Democrats run everything? The Democrats have been running Congress for two years and have run the economy in the ground. You need to wake up and smell some reality and maybe take a community college course in economics.

    GM and Toyota sold about the same number of cars last year. GM lost 18 billion, Toyota made 8 billion.

    If the Feds must spend 15 billion to bail out the auto industry why don't they buy 15 billion worth of cars and finance them to cities and states and low income people. This will put everyone to work from the manufactures, dealers, repair shops, insurance companies and banks. duh?

    HOLY SHIT!!! Can I get an AAAAAAMEEEEEEENNNNNNN!!!!

    We are constantly taking meat loads to that entire area. Matter of fact, this last week, I delivered in West Sac., Roseville, Oakland and Tracy. Then sat for 24 hours at the Flying J in Ripon, off 99.

    As for the Fresno Wabo closing, I saw a billboard that had a big CLOSED FOR REMODELING sash over the billboard. Don't remember where it was though. I had just finished driving 11 hours, finishing out the last 2.5 hours, chaining, climbing and decending Donner. My eyes were just bloodshot, dried up little slits.

    Dont bash Fresno Too much. I lived in L.A. for 2 years and im glad I aint going back. As Far as business was concerned the Cabo Wabo here was packed every weekend with a 2 hour wait. So packed that I couldnt get in and never did! I know Fresno isnt heaven but we beat Georgia for the NCAA Baseball National Championship . Oh yeah and RHRN Vid. Ok enough bragging Im proud of that because Im in it. Yes its a shit hole in the Valley but its easy livin.
