After the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Devil's Slide tunnels Monday, an after-party was sponsored by both The Surf Spot and Recology of the Coast in celebration of "the tunnel that joins Pacifica with the rest of the world," read an invitation from the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce.
Music was by the West Bay Rhythm Band, a funk-soul big horn band who played music from Tower of Power, Malo, Chicago and War. The Surf Spot served up appetizers at fixed locations, including crab cakes and "a cheese spread to die for," said president of the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce Cheryl Yoes. The event took place both inside and outside in the back area with a warm fire pit, heaters and tables and seating throughout the area.
"What a great job! ... So fun," said Yoes of the event that was held from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. and included guests such as the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce CEO Courtney Conlon and staff as well as tunnelista Mike Mooney, Pacifica councilmember Karen Ervin, Caltrans spokesperson Bob Haus, and Pacifica mayor pro tem Mary Ann Nihart.
