Downtown Dave is going to make you want to come to the Bay this weekend. Here’s where we think you should stay!
Downtown Dave’s Thought(s) For The Week
Well, I usually have an interesting quote from things that I have read and copied over time. I always put my twist to every thought. I only save them because they make me think. I go through them at times and reflect back on the events of my life. Sometimes, if I need inspiration the quotes that I have saved motivate me. This week though, it’s just me. Things that I have done and things that I watched. It might not motivate you but hopefully it will make you think a bit. That was my whole reason for my Sunday posts many years ago. I was talked into doing the Downtown Dave post to share my thoughts and my reviews of live music. Now, I am trying to see all of the bands and post live videos. You can friend me at Dave Schafer on Facebook and see my live videos of all of the bands so you can see all of the great bands for yourself!
So this week’s post is all about the people of Put-in-Bay. I have been coming to the island for 21 years and owned Ashley’s Island House for 7 years. Until you have lived on the island you do not know the people that make the island work. We are a very small community that does our best to make sure you have a great time when you come to Put-in-Bay.
Tuesday night, I worked at the Roundhouse checking id’s and doing security. What is an old person like me doing security? Well, I know how to defuse a situation if needed. But the reason that I did it was to give thanks to the hardworking people at the Roundhouse. Every year they have an employee party and they need help to keep the bar running. They ask employees from other businesses on the island to help out. Well on Wednesday night, most of the staff of the Boathouse and I worked, so the employees of the Roundhouse could enjoy a night together. They did not get paid (except for tips) but they did it to help out. Unless you are a part of the island you do not understand. This is really a special place where we all get along and everybody is willing to help everybody. That is what Put-in-Bay is all about. It is our job to make sure that our friends and all of our guests have a great time. But the feeling that you have after you leave is that I cannot wait to come back. Not every establishment is perfect but a majority of them try to make you feel special and value your business. Without your tourist dollars we would not exist. You can spend your money anywhere but we are happy that you are spending it with us at Put-in-Bay.
It is not too late to schedule a trip to Put-in-Bay for 2023. If you are already booked up this year please call your favorite place and book for 2024.
