Good news was recently received from Brian at The Junction Bar & Grill. In an April 14 email he wrote:
“We passed our health inspection! That was huge. I'm waiting on one of two fire suppression companies to come out and refill our tank that protects the kitchen. Can't really grill without this... We will have beer, wine, pizza and snacks from this weekend on as long as weather permits. (If it's a rainy day we may stay closed that day).
In two weekends from now I'll have a trailer BBQ going outside in the event the kitchen is not operational. I've had heck of a time getting those fire guys to come all the way out here.
So long story short, yes we will be open from this weekend on out.”
For the May ride, we will be venturing into the Mountains to the south of Livermore for lunch at The Junction Bar & Grill.
