A paint crew works on the exterior of what used to be the longtime Red Carpet Bar, on Santa Fe Street, in downtown Riverbank, painting it while other improvements have been going on inside. Concrete work resurfaced the floor and improvements have been made on the lot next door that will allow for outside dining and include fire pit areas. Owner Randy Rocha is opening a restaurant, with the outdoor seating, and bar to be called The Black Sheep. It is right next door to Pizza Plus, on the north side of the street. In addition, City Planning Department Manager Donna Kenney said that Rocha is also a partner in The Daily Dose café across Santa Fe next to Get Toasted, and The Pump House, coming soon to Third and Atchison Streets.
