It looks like they're not holding out much 'hope' (second bullet) of being open for at least a week, so i guess it's more than just a day at the beach maybe it's their regular vacation...
I think a lot of people use the double quotes for emphasis, as a substitute for bold text or underlining or - in the case of internet English - ALL CAPS.

Just found your blog. OMG. This is seriously the "best" thing "ever." ;)I posted it to Facebook along with the following thought:"Wow. For the second day in a row, the editor in me has a tear in her eye. It is so nice to know that there ARE other people out there who cringe at this sort of thing. Over the last few years, I have definitely noticed that the grammatical ability of the American public is rapidly spiraling downward. Perhaps it is simply language evolution and I just need to get over myself (and it). Still, I doubt I will ever get over the increasingly common misplacement of the apostrophe (NOT NEEDED WHEN PLURALIZING!) and the often incorrectly used "they're/their/there" or "your/you're."I suppose teaching grammar just doesn't matter anymore? (wtf???)""Nice" job.
