Although the Feratis, like many people, are left picking up the pieces, they are still grateful.
“The same magnitude earthquake hit Pakistan and what, wiped out 70,000 to 80,000 people,” Ulber said. “Not one person here.”
While no lives were lost, some of the bottles lost are irreplaceable.
“Some were just old that we kept in the back for a while,” Ylli said. “Dad’s owned the restaurant in Alaska for a long time and he’s had some stuff sitting around. I looked back in his cellar and just found gems. Some of those gems are now unfortunately destroyed.”
“So is life,” Ulber said. “You keep going and start over if you have to.”
The family plans to have the business back open on Sunday at 4 p.m. The restaurant and bar at 2502 McRae Road is open seven days a week from 4 p.m. to midnight.
“The losses are priceless,” Ylli said. “I want to thank our community and customers. A lot of outpour from them. It was a good overwhelming feeling though. It just makes you think of all the hard work you put into it, that people appreciate it. It wasn’t just mine it was all of ours.”

“Even if the relationship is consensual, the person cannot give consent because of that relationship,” explained PCU investigator Glen Klinkhart. “And that’s important because it’s power and control and it’s a sense where you’ve got somebody who has a lot more power and control over you and a person may not feel like they can say no, so this is why the law is the way it is.”
