Since Riptide launched in 2007 with all-volunteer labor, dozens of Coastsiders have helped pay for the site's web hosting, software, email service, domain name registration, and other administrative costs. Riptide is grateful for the Coastside community's help, and to the following local businesses for their support: Luigi's Italian Restaurant, Periwinkle Custom Framing, Dan B. Underhill Plumbing, DeMartini Graphics, Granite Electric.
"Best deal in town," says Frank Napolitano. "Great place to dine with family and friends. What a feast!" Luigi's opens for lunch and dinner six days a week (closed Tuesdays). Full menu includes pizza, pasta, and Luigi's famous Sicilian rice ball and garlic bread. Takeout and free delivery.
