Tiny Tavern in the Whiteaker was shut down by Lane County health inspectors Dec. 5 for health code violations, according to the Eugene Brewery District website. The bar at 394 Blair Blvd. scored 67 points out of 100 and “according to regulations, any score of 70 or less will require the business to close its doors until corrections and a re-inspection can be made,” says the website. Jeff Malos owns the building and is rumored to be looking to sell it. Back in our Sept. 25 Biz Beat, we wrote about the bar closing when manager Jeff Peck left to open Old Nick’s Pub. Sounds like Malos took over Tiny’s and it has not gone well — the county found a moldy cutting board, warm butter, bad plumbing, floor problems, etc. A link to the health inspection report can be found on the Brewery District website or see

The Antique Clock Shop at 888 Pearl St. downtown has been closed since Nov. 1 for remodeling and reopened this week with a new name, the Anderson-Jagels Antique Company.

They have also grown their inventory of antique clocks, estate jewelry, sterling silver and small antiques. “We want to let folks know that we are still here, haven’t closed up, just spiffed up the old place,” says Patricia Anderson-Jagels. Phone number is 683-1349.

A new board game by Chris Pender is now available at Holiday Market, weekends at the Lane County Fairgrounds. Pender, creator of The Game of REAL LIFE, now has OCCUPY! vs. 1%, inspired by Donald Trump, who suggested we could pay off our national debt if we sold our national parks.

The Occupy players try to stop the sale by occupying the parks or petitioning Congress. Contact
