LETTER: 30A: Where it’s always happy hour

Published: Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 03:55 PM.

It is not an easy job to work in a bar or restaurant all the time. People can be very demanding.

Luckily in our area, most are understandable. There will always be that ONE. And I suppose with age come wisdom, and in my case, patience. I used to become upset easily. Maybe now, due in part to cold beer and tequila, I can shrug most of it off. Maybe seeing many lifestyles walk in and out makes one more understanding.

Whatever the case may be, I feel lucky to have the opportunity to wake up every day and work in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I get to see sport stars, rock stars, and all the other awesome stars in the sky … from our beach. 

So as fall break approaches, so do the yard sales, the wine festivals, the plays, the movies, the music — the fun just keeps on rolling. I tell my customers that become exhausted at the close of their vacations, imagine living here. It is tiresome but oh so worth it.

I thank you 30A. I thank all the locals and I thank all the tourists. My bar appreciates you! And remember no matter how much your drink costs, it’s always going to be a HAPPY HOUR when you see me.
