After 7 years, this wonderful, beautiful, passionate labor of love has become far too time consuming for me.  I’m in the process of finishing a new album with “The Circle” and need to concentrate on my music, my performances and my TV series.  I also want to be able to spend more quality time with my family.  The day to day problems of operating a restaurant have prevented me from doing a lot of the things that I need to be doing.  You might say that I have been dealing with a lot of headaches and have simply run out of aspirin.

Once I get to the Birthday Bash in October, I will revisit El Paseo, build a team and start over from scratch.

Thanks to everyone for all of your support, and in the meantime, please visit some of the other great restaurants in downtown Mill Valley.

Sincerely,
Sammy
