Cavi at the Big Oaks restaurant underwent water tests after nearly burning in Buckweed fire.
After surviving the Buckweed fire, which burned more than 5 structures off of Bouquet Canyon, Cavi at the Big Oaks was hit with another problem. After parts of Bouquet were declared a disaster area, the Health Department of California ordered the restaurant, which gets its water from a private well, to undergo water tests.
While the tests were in progress, the restaurant was closed for three weeks. This inevitably had a huge effect on the business. Owner Mike Milligan said that being closed for such a long time, “really hurt”, but he has high hopes for the future.
“We just want to let people know that we’re open, and we’re really hoping the community comes out to support us,” says Milligan. Cavi at the Big Oaks is back to its regular business hours, and will be holding several holiday parties. “We saw how the community supported the Lombardi’s, and we really hope they’ll do the same for us. We’ve been here for a long time, and we’ll make it through this.”
