putinbay.com 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. Enjoy!
Downtown Dave is going to make you want to come to the Bay this weekend. Here’s where we think you should stay!
A Week Of Band News From Downtown Dave
Downtown Dave here, with your weekly Put-in-Bay band schedule. Many places now have entertainment every day, so the schedules that I post will run from Thursday to Wednesday. Now those that come during the week can check out the live music everywhere. I will do my best to keep you updated on all the island events as well. I will try and not favor any one entertainer or place, but I will give my opinions on what I see on a weekly basis. Most performers you can check out on Google or Facebook. I will try and see every band for a few minutes and save my thoughts when they come back and play again so I can give everybody updates.
This is a busy week with other events also. We have Mills Cup race, Founder’s Day, Pooch Parade, Bensen Shiphouse tours and 1st annual Pride Day. So Put in Bay is not just beers, golf carts and music. There is a lot going on and a lot to see. Plus Island Softball season has started. Games are Sunday, Monday and Wednesdays. We have 9 teams this year so it should be a fun season
Downtown Dave’s Thought For The Week
1000 Saturdays And Marbles
The older I get the more that I enjoy Saturday mornings. A majority of us work the Monday through Friday deal and when Saturday comes it is a relief that we have 2 days off to do what we want. Now we still have chores and other obligations but can some of it wait. So the average person lives to the age of 75. Multiply 75 times 52 and I came up with 3900. That is the total number of Saturdays that we have in our lifetime. It took me till I was 55 to think about this in any detail. By that time I figured I only had about 1000 Saturdays left So I went to a store and bought 1000 marbles. I put them into a big jar. Every Saturday I take 1 marble out and throw it away. I found out by watching the marbles diminish I focused more on the really important things in life. There is nothing like watching your time here on earth run out to get your priorities straight. Take time for yourself. So make sure you take time to enjoy every Saturday that you can because one day you will be out of marbles. The best thing that I have found out to do on Saturdays is spending it on Put in Bay doing whatever you might enjoy and bring friends.
