Deep Throat reports: "The Surf Spot restaurant was honored by the Chamber of Commerce on January 31 for being an innovative business, but none of the three owners (Cowan, Szeto, Burns) showed up. They sent their hostesses to pick up the award. It's my understanding that the restaurant cost them way more to build than they thought. They have had problems with the live music bothering people in Rockaway Beach. They seem to have a lot of business, though. Maybe this was just a ploy to establish a business and then sell it. They call it 'value adding.' They added a lot of value there."
