El Torito Sewage Spill Closes Beach

Go easy on the frijoles, ok?

The bureau closed access to McAbee Beach around 10:35 a.m., after the Monterey Fire Department reported a sewage spill coming from El Torito Mexican Restaurant, located at 600 Cannery Row, according to the county officials.
The restaurant sits adjacent to the beach and right on the water’s edge.
The fire department learned of the spill sometime between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. when a person passing through the area called to report sewage spilling into the ocean, according to Monterey Fire Captain Barry Perkins.
The amount of sewage released into the Monterey Bay is unknown at this time, Supervising Environmental Health Specialist with Monterey County Marni Flagg said.

What? Slow Sales Of Expensive Mexican Formula Meals?

Not like there is any shortage of Mexican restaurants around here.

General Manager Sergio Maravilla said there’s been less parties coming in to eat and fewer company lunches. He said there’s been no layoffs, but they’ve had to cut back on expenditures like advertising.

Real Mex Restaurants also owns Chevy’s, Acapulco and the upscale El Torito Grill among others. All are said to be facing the same woes.
