As owner of Dante's on the River, Kevin Cairns was more comfortable in a kitchen than a courtroom.
But with his ongoing legal battles, Cairns found himself spending more time getting better acquainted with the justice system than he would have liked.
Kevin Cairns, the embattled owner of Dante's on the River restaurant, is sticking a fork in his most recent business venture.
Cairns, 50, has placed his Whitehall-area establishment on the market, the Mountain Democrat learned. According to David Bolster of ERA Realty, Cairns placed the fine-dining restaurant up for sale in mid-December. Cairns' asking price is $499,000, which includes the 2,000-square-foot restaurant and bar, as well as an adjacent two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. Cairns is the third owner of the restaurant. In the mid-1940s, the eatery was known as McCann's. In 1975, it was purchased by the Alioto family and was renamed Alioto's. After Alioto's closed shop, the property was vacant for nearly a decade until Cairns opened Dante's. Cairns reportedly approached Goodrich, flung snow at his vehicle and told the motorist to leave the parking lot. When Goodrich confronted Cairns, Cairns reportedly called for his dog. Goodrich is believed to have returned to his pickup truck at that point, but Cairns followed the victim with a piece of wood and hit Goodrich's vehicle at least twice, causing damage, according to authorities. Cairns was then said to have waved the piece of wood at Goodrich, who was seated in his vehicle. Cairns was arrested at his restaurant later that day on suspicion of vandalism and exhibiting a weapon. As of Tuesday afternoon, charges had not been filed against Cairns. The case is currently under review by the District Attorney's Office. Cairns has had other parking lot-related incidents over the years. He was arrested in 2006 on suspicion of assault with an electrical device and making terrorist threats after allegedly attacking a Georgetown man with a stun gun. He was eventually found not guilty of a single misdemeanor assault charge in connection with that incident.

And I can also understand how Kevin Cairns, the operator of Dante's, must get tired of cleaning up his parking lot.
The few merchants along the route should not be expected to provide restroom facilities for the thousands of travelers making the journey. As far as Kevin Cairns is concerned, perhaps he should be in some business that doesn't involve contact with people. Like maybe he should go up to Alaska and count the caribou. Come on do murders, rapist and thiefs get treated as Mr. Cairns has.
