With a somber heart, we share the news of Ron Zeller's passing, the visionary founder behind At Random, who peacefully left us at the age of 92.

Before our acquisition of At Random in 2018, Ron, alongside his wife Shirley and son Randy, graced the bar nearly every day, offering exceptional drinks and warm hospitality to our cherished guests. The spirit of At Random always radiated the perfect blend of music, lighting, and ambiance, turning each visit into a stroke of good fortune. Those fortunate enough to occupy a seat and enjoy a drink personally crafted and served by Ron understood that they were in the presence of a truly extraordinary individual.

Ron was a remarkable man whose contributions to At Random and the Bay View community were immeasurable and he will be missed.
