Sharkeez all fired up

Back in the day, I spent many a drunken quiet evening at Sharkeez in Hermosa. I got a call this morning (from someone who remembered those days) letting me know that Sharkeez is on fire. It sounds like the fire is contained but the building is destroyed. Ahhh, the memories… or really, lack thereof…

HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. — Firefighters from at least four departments battled a blaze at a restaurant on the Hermosa Beach Pier on Tuesday morning.

The fire at Baja Sharkeez restaurant was reported at about 4:30 a.m. Firefighters from El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Torrance responded, according to NBC4’s Robert Kovacik. Because of the intensity of the fire, firefighters were forced to work on it from outside the building. [full story]

  1. You know what? I don’t like sharkeez. And saying so, I feel bad about it. Why do things I don’t like have to experience bad things, so that I can not complain about them anymore? That is just injust and in the future I will make up stories about how much I loved that quiet bar at the ocean side…

  2. That spot got what it deserved, really. I had never been to a spot that tries to dissuade “monorities” from entering more than this one.

    Long live Molloy’s!!!

  3. Bad news: Sharkeez is not what it use to be and its demise is unfortunate. Good news: I met my boyfriend at Sharkeez (and two good friends I still keep in touch with today). Four years later, we married! I guess Sharkeez served its purpose in our case.
