A Latvian Relative?

As I was wandering around Riga, I noticed this sign. Beer & Chill? Oh, but it gets better.
For those of you who don't know, "Blakus" is remarkably close to my surname.
According to stars21.com, which is an awesome translation site, "blakus" means next. The full text of the add - translated into English - reads "Torans Merlin at central Market, beers and sophisticated meat dishes, the Moscow street 4"
(translated by itself, "blakus" means next, as in "nearby" or "next to.")
