I was born and raised in Menlo Park, CA and ever since I can remember The Oasis has been our hangout and today we found out they are closing after 60 years in business! As a kid I can remember going to the O with my Dad for pizza and a Rootbeer and feeling so grown up as we sat in the large wooden booths with names of Stanford students past and present carved into the tables and walls.
Then when I was older meeting friends over beers after softball games or watching the Giants in the World Series. The Oasis is a Menlo Park mainstay!
Today, I found out the O is closing on March 7. It is terrible to see this iconic mainstay of Menlo Park getting pushed out by a greedy landlord who wants to capitalize on the Bay Area boom and replace this City landmark.
The Oasis was opened in 1958 by Bernie Tougas and is still family run. It is truly the last original burger and beer pub on the Peninsula.
Please sign my petition and ask the landlords to reconsider and keep the Oasis open for generations to come!
