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

It is hard to believe that this is the 4th weekend of June already. But, you still have lots of time to visit Put-ini-Bay this summer. We had an awesome weekend last weekend. Lots of good music, of course. If you were not here you missed a lot.
I will also make notes on bands so when they come back to Put-in-Bay, I can tell all of you what kind of music that they play. The fun part of music is that every song can have a lasting memory. It could be bad, but most songs remind you of a good time in your life. That is why I am a music fan. When I hear an old song it takes me back to the first time that I heard it and it makes me smile. I really feel sorry for some of the young kids now because when they get older they will not have a lot to listen to because most of the new music is not very good. I think we all wish we were rock stars of the 80s.

I have not missed a Pirate’s weekend since it started maybe 15 years ago. There is a lot of work to put these events together. I have to shout out to Ty Winchester for all of the work that he does for this event.

It is really a cool weekend that you do not want to miss. There might be a few rooms open for the weekend, but if not still come up on Saturday and Sunday, and then book for 2024!

Downtown Dave’s Thought(s) For The Week

Okay time for the thought of the week before I post the band schedule.

So to clarify my thoughts of the week. Over the years I have collected many thoughts and I modify them to the present day and also modify them to my thoughts. I hope my thoughts will make you sit back and think and maybe realize how good we have it living in the USA. Also maybe it will inspire you to have fun and live in the present.

I welcome emails to if you have thoughts that you would like to share, that I can add to my weekly post. And Thank You to all that find me out and about on Put-in-Bay and thank me for the band schedule that I put online and for the thoughts of the week. So here are my thoughts for the last week of June. 4th of July is around the corner and do not miss my thoughts on one of my favorite holidays next week.

Many people will walk in and out of your life
But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

To handle yourself, use your head
To handle others use your heart

Anger is one letter short of danger

He who loses money just loses money. The money that is lost can be replaced.
He who loses a friend , loses much more

Learn from mistakes of others
You cannot live enough to make them all yourself.

So friends like you and me are brought together by another friend. I have a philosophy at Ashley’s Island House. The first time you stay you are a guest. The second time you stay you are a friend and the third time you become family. That should be your life. If you meet somebody 3 times they should be family. Your life will be better if you look at things that way.
