The Ranch House BBQ restaurant, which was destroyed by a mudslide in last week's storm, likely will reopen in January at the Governor Hotel in downtown Olympia, The Olympian reports.
Sandra Miller, vice president and general manager of the hotel, confirmed the offer Sunday night.
Ranch House co-owner Melanie Tapia is expected to announce today that kitchen space at the Governor Hotel has been donated to the business, free of charge.
She said her insurance policy doesn't cover flooding.
Meantime, a "Benefit for Ranch House BBQ" account has been set up at West Coast Bank to help Tapia and partner Amy Anderson rebuild. Donations will be accepted at any West Coast Bank branch in Washington or Oregon.
