Downtown Dave Previews The Week (6/15-21) is happy to introduce a new weekly feature, Downtown Dave! A short column by friend of the site Dave Schafer, Downtown Dave will provide some insight into what’s happening at the Bay any given week, as well as information on that weekend’s live music.
Dave Schafer is the owner of Ashley’s Island house, a 13-room bed and breakfast on the island. Learn more about it at or call 419-285-2844!

Downtown Dave is going to make you want to come to the Bay this weekend. Here’s where we think you should stay!

The Week Ahead At The Bay

We had another great weekend on Put-in-Bay last weekend. A little rain on Sunday did damper things outside, but inside the island was rocking.
This coming Saturday Heineman’s is having an Ohio Island wine festival. Definitely a must do event for those that enjoy wine.
For those that would like to learn about the history of Put-in-Bay go to the Historical Society located right behind the Brewery. The island is not all about bars.
Ship House Vodka is now for sale  at the brand new Noble Cut Distillery, right below the Tree House bar on Delaware. Stop in for a sample.
Expanded boat schedule for both the Miller Ferry and the Jet Express. It is not too late to plan a summer trip.


Downtown Dave’s Thought(s) For The Week

How to stay young:
Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
Enjoy the simple things.
Laugh often and loud.
The tears happen. Endure, grieve and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are still alive.
Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, music, hobbies, whatever.
Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
Do not take guilt trips. Take a trip anywhere, but not where the guilt is. Take a trip to Put-in-Bay and bring a friend. That for sure will help!
Tell the people that you love that you love them every chance you get.
Do not live in the past. Live each and every day with no regrets. Learn from the past so you do not make the same mistake again, but worrying about what happened yesterday will just age your faster.
Last thing, and I am sure everybody has read this before. I have it posted in my bathroom and I read it every day to start my day. Life is not measured by the numbers of breaths that we take. But the moments that take our breath away.
