Ruby's Host informs us that the locks have been changed to Cha Cha's gates by landlord Thor Equities at 1:15 this afternoon. So, Cha Cha's is another boardwalk business that at this point will not return again for the 2009 Coney season. She also said that so far Cha Cha's John Garcia will still be involved in "Beer Island" with partner, Anthony, operator of "Shoot the Freak" (a long-time big Thor supporter).

Ruby's Host also said:

Thor Equities was seen today with potential business associates viewing the properties on the boardwalk. All properties.

Ruby's locks are fine, though. And the whole section from Tommy's souvenir to the Gyro stand is ok. However, Lola Staar is already packing and has time to move. And finally, Paul & Gregory have till end of January to vacate. They have been slowly moving out.
