Café Fina Restaurant on Fisherman’s Wharf will celebrate its 30th anniversary this summer!

One of the Monterey Peninsulas most renowned and cherished restaurants turns 30 this summer.

Salinas, CA, May 22, 2019 – One of the Monterey Peninsulas most renowned and cherished restaurants turns 30 this summer. Café Fina on Fisherman’s Wharf will celebrate its 30th anniversary this June 28th. Family recipes passed down from grandmother to mother are still used at Café Fina to provide an authentic Italian seafood experience right here in Monterey. In this Italian cuisine, fresh fish and homemade pasta has been the main course since 1989.

Owner Dominic Mercurio remembers playing and working on the wharf since he was just a child, “a bunch of us used to come down her every day in the summer time. We were 10 or 11 and would leave home in the morning and not go back until dark.” “My father Jean introduced my brother and I to the fishing industry and shared everything we knew. We are proud to continue his legacy.”

Some years later, Dominic opened his own Italian seafood restaurant in Monterey, naming it after his mother Josephina.

Dominic’s excellent cooking has enabled him to be the sole caterer for John Madden’s induction ceremony into the Football Hall of Fame in 2006. Dominic has earned visits from Rachel Ray, the Hillstrand Brothers of the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch and other TV, Movie and Sport stars including the great Joe DiMaggio. Dominic is also committed to his local community, donating on as regular basis to a number of organizations in the Monterey Area.

In the coming months Café Fina will be rolling back prices on specialty food items and drinks to 1989 prices. Special pricing will include spaghetti and meatballs, pizza and wine.

Join Café Fina as they celebrate 30 years this June and thank the many loyal local customers who have made the last 30 years so special!

Inspired by the Victorian-era language of flowers, a posy is a small, round bouquet of flowers, herbs, and plants meant to convey a message, such as dahlias for gratitude, sunflowers for adoration, or thyme for bravery; she shares her favorites for every occasion.

Sabankaya’s trademarked creations, Bonny Doon Posies, have been a core part of her retail business from the beginning, and have been featured in such media as CBS Sunday Morning, Romantic Homes magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Santa Cruz Sentinel and The New York Times.

Pro-American Business Leader Daryl Guberman Stands With President Trump & ABAC Against Socialist ANSI-ANAB & IAF

The battle between pro-American quality accreditation associations like the ABAC and the entrenched China-led, poorly operated quality organizations like the ANSI-ANAB & IAF couldn’t be more serious. Expert Daryl Guberman sheds light on this concern in new YouTube video.

New York, NY – USA, May 20, 2019 — Quality certification is a very important area for a business or organization to be concerned with. When this kind of accreditation is being handled for American companies, including those in the defense industry, and even very important government institutions, by quality association that may be American-based on paper but are led by a Chinese national, the dangers are quite chilling. Standing up against this is quality consulting expert Daryl Guberman, who has over 30-years experience in the industry, and eight years as head of Guberman PMC, pro-American quality accreditation company ABAC and the POTUS Donald Trump. Guberman recently addressed the multi-pronged, anti-American dangers of ANSI-ANAB and the IAF in his latest YouTube video, “Pro-Americans Trump, Guberman-PMC & ABAC vs ANSI-ANAB, IAF & Socialism”. This is well beyond a thousand videos Guberman has made in an effort to educate both companies unaware of the nature of the associations they may be a part of, so they can change their course to one that is more sensible and ethical and the public in general.

“We are talking about some of the worst forces in the world today coming behind the ANSI-ANAB and IAF, a lack of respect for democracy and the free market, pro-socialism and communism, anti-Americanism and antisemitism,” remarked Guberman. “It is close to unbelievable that this goes largely ignored but we are doing our best to point companies and people towards a pro-American alternative for quality certification in the ABAC. We know President Trump supports these efforts. China is a clear enemy of the effort to Make America Greater Again.”

Guberman-PMC offers quality consultation covering nearly every major area a business could cover. This involves a serious look at quality that carries real value and not just “going through the steps” for image’s sake. The rebuilding of America and America’s companies relies on their quality being taken very seriously and it is a job Guberman-PMC is not just authorities on but are also completely passionate about.

The invitation is always open to both discuss quality concerns, new projects or for evidence concerning the exposes led by Guberman by reaching out to him directly through Guberman-PMC.

Quality Expert Daryl Guberman Calls on President Trump to Investigate ANSI-ANAB & the IAF for Potential Chinese Spy Activity

The Chinese drive to spy on their rivals is well known and not deniable. This makes Guberman-PMC’s calls for the POTUS to have the so-called “quality” associations ANSI-ANAB and the IAF, and the strong likelihood they are being used by Chinese intelligence agencies to spy vitally important.

New York, NY – USA, May 20, 2019 — When Chinese nationals work outside their country, Chinese law requires them to report back to their government on any of their activities. This is something Daryl Guberman, CEO and Founder of Quality Certification and Consultants Guberman-PMC refuses to turn a blind eye to, when the leading quality associations the ANSI-ANAB and the IAF are led by a Chinese national on one hand and have clear, unmistakable ties to anti-American and antisemitic nations as full members on the other. In response to this clearly dangerous for America situation, Guberman has called on no less than the President of the United States, fellow patriot Donald Trump, to launch an investigation into this likely case of Chinese spying and put an end to it before serious damage occurs, in my most recent YouTube video, “Trump Needs To Investigate ANSI-ANAB IAF After Chinese Spy Network Exposed”. The passion that Guberman and Guberman-PMC have for America is inspiring to many.

“With the American-Chinese trade war accelerating this information is more important than ever,” commented Guberman about the spying danger. “We know the POTUS would never support something like this so it’s our responsibility to do everything we can to raise his awareness to the situation and make a change.”

Some of the nations tied to ANSI-ANAB and the IAF, beyond China, include Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and at one point (until they didn’t pay their memberships), North Korea, and Libya. All who have openly attacked the United States and have been accused of sponsoring terrorism.

A vast majority of state-sponsored internet hacking efforts over the last five years have been launched from Chinese-based groups, most have been proven to be Chinese intelligence agency trained. One can only imagine what type of damage could be inflicted if these types of actors were “given the keys” to a company or government organization who have something of interest to the Chinese state.

Daryl Guberman has been a steady source of very reliable, fact checked, information in this area, when most of the rest of the professionals in the quality field have remained silent.

Guberman-PMC CEO Daryl Guberman Makes Powerful Call to Patriots to Boycott Anti-American Companies Overseen by China

The number of companies, including military contractors, being overseen by a Chinese national led quality registrar is growing and beyond disturbing. Daryl Guberman, an authority in the quality space, has gone to YouTube to bring to call for a boycott and end the hypocrisy.

New York, NY – USA, May 20, 2019 — When a company submits to a quality association to be certified they open the door to their inside information being made vulnerable to the association inspecting them. When American companies allow this to happen at the hands of a Chinese-national led group of associations like the ANSI-ANAB and the IAF, supposed leaders for quality accreditation, it can be disconcerting to say the least. When that is coupled with these associations not even doing their quality jobs properly, a fact proven by all of the recent failures experienced by companies under they watch, the whole situation is likely criminal. Quality Consultant firm CEO Daryl Guberman of Guberman-PMC has had more than enough and is now calling for a complete boycott of companies involved, explaining the reason why in his new YouTube tell-all video, “Overseen By China: Message To All Patriots To Boycott Anti-American Companies. The initial response to the video has been both shocked and extremely positive.

“Sometimes we have to just say enough is enough and that is the point we have reached with the Chinese-control over these supposedly American-based Quality Certification Associations,” commented Guberman. “So by making a list of all of the companies involved and offering it for free to anyone who contacts us, so that they can be boycotted, is the next logical step in trying to exert positive influence.”

Gubermian has a deep knowledge of the world of quality having worked in it for over three decades and being the founder and CEO of quality consultants Guberman-PMC a well-respected member of the quality community. He is also an American patriot who does his best to hire veterans to thank them for their service, and proudly also a Jewish supporter of the only democracy in the middle east and reliable American-ally Israel. This makes the fact that the Chinese overseen quality associations have over two dozen anti-Israel nations as members, but Israel itself is never asked to join, even more offensive and sinister.

Be sure to keep an eye out for new videos from Guberman on the subject that appear on a regular basis.
