Marina Del Rey Memorabilia

A couple of fun restaurants in Marina Del Rey have suddenly closed, leading to some disgruntled residents. The Harbor House and Edie's Diner both had great views and a loyal clientele, many of whom are disappointed by this turn of events. It seems the two were due to close anyway when the property owner finalized plans to demolish and contruct a mixed-use development. However, even they were surprized by MDR Restaurants, Inc's sudden closures because, as the president of EMC Development, LLC, Edward Czuker said, "since I took over this leasehold 18 months ago, I have been providing them with free rent as well as paying them a cash subsidy to ensure their continued operation."

Wow...something pretty ugly must have happened for the management company to call it quits if they were in fact getting free rent and a cash subsidy.

But on to taking advantage of the situation. Are you redecorating? Do you need some red vinyl booths? Counter stools? A milkshake machine? Other random restaurant stuff?

There's always a silver lining.
