Vintage Oaks shopping center will have a new marquee tenant soon: Hopmonk Tavern.
How does that sound?
The is reporting that Dean Biersch, a co-founder of the Gordon Biersch brewing empire, is going to take over the vacant spot previously home to the short-lived Southern Pacific Smokehouse on the shopping center's west side, within view of Highway 101.
Is this a good fit for Novato? Are music fans happy? Are beer fans happy? Are foodies happy?
