The Doryman Tavern’s bow light has been passed on to new deckhands.
The iconic Cheticamp tavern and music venue has a long history of ownership and another page was added this week when Claude Bourgeois and Christina Roberts passed the keys on to new owners Marc Neary and Justin Chiasson.
“It’s a good move,” said Roberts on Monday. “Marc and Justin will be a good fit for the place.”
Roberts said being a tavern/restaurant owner takes up a lot of time – time she will now spend with her eight-year-old son and her massage therapy business.
The same was true for Bourgeois, who is the owner of Bourgeois Diesel Service Ltd., and is busy providing engine and hydraulic repairs to the crab and lobster fleets.
