The Answer to the Question: Why?

Posted by tmontgomer on December 3, 2011 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (4)

Anyone in a small business will understand when what I mean when I talk about the question:  Why?  Why go through the struggle of trying to survive and keep a business going?  Why risk everything on a dream that has a huge chance of failing?  Why work 100 hours a week for no or very little money?  Why? 

Well I can tell you that there are very good reasons and last night for me was one of them.  We came together at the bar last night to help raise some ...

A Wonderful Night

I have to tell you all that Saturday night was a wonderful experience.  A few weeks ago I met this couple and found out that one of them was a musician.  I had the pleasure of going to see her perform at Mulligans downtown and really enjoyed the show.  I asked if she would like to play at the bar and she graciously accepted.  Little did I know how much her performance would actually end up meaning to me.  

I will be honest the past few weeks have been a struggle...

Great Love, Great Pain

I think this has been one of the toughest weeks I have had since the bar opened.  I feel like this community and the people who come here are part of my family.  They mean so much to me.  The loss that we suffered this week has made me feel a saddness that words really can't explain.   Mickey was my friend and my heart is breaking.  Being in this place everyday affords me the opportunity to know so many wonderful people.  I am so blessed by the relation...

Friday Night Karaoke Cover?

I am really thinking about Friday nights...right now we charge a $5 cover to help offset the cost. It normally doesn't pay all of the Karaoke DJ expense, but it helps...
