What Business Could Replace Slocum House?

Locals voice their opinion on community issues.

Following the sudden closure of one of Fair Oaks' premiere eateries, , the question of what would replace the popular business has been a topic of oft discussion.

We grabbed the camera and asked locals what they think would be a good fit for the vacated area.

Thanks for the feedback, Ann. It definitely seems to be a sensitive subject for Fair Oaks locals. Thanks for the kind words, too. We'll definitely continue to provide the most comprehensive news for the community. And don't worry about trying to stir controversy, either. That wasn't the intention of my question, but more to get a better understanding of what people in the community are thinking. Thanks again!

I did not mean to start anything on the chicken issue since I have never had them pester me whenever I had eaten at places around the park. They could be a sanitation issue for sure for any restaurant and I agree with Ann for her comments and a desire to eat in peace and enjoy the atmosphere. Maybe the next busboy will find part of his duties being the use of a broom to shoo birds away from tables. I do hope that a restaurant will be the next business and the charm and grace of the area maintained.

Well said, now let's all have a fine time this weekend at the good old Fiesta Days. :)

My wife and I loved Slocum house, it was our choice for special occasions, yesterday was our anniversary(26 years) and were sad that we could not go to our favorite place. I see the uniqueness/history of the chickens in the area but when you see them roosting in the trees above the courtyard tables and realize they defecate frequently(from above) which is one issue. What seals it for me is when we had brunch there and had a chicken jump on our table and started eating my wife's eggs!.
