What a week! Well we decided to do a little project and we took down the massive canopy that hung over the bar! I can't believe what an amazing difference it makes in the feel of the bar! I hope you all come out and see the changes and I sure hope you like them! (It's not like I can put it back up if you don't!) I have to thank Darryl, Jennay, Kristy and Shelley because without them I would still be trying to tear that thing down one piece at a time! It is a beautiful thing to have such wonderful friends!
I am really looking forward to Sat Night! Carol Plunk is back in town finally and will be playing from 7p-8p followed by Ashley McBryde! What a night! Please come out and join us for a night of great music and even greater friends!
It seems like everytime I think I understand the depth of friendships I am surrounded by everyday I am blown away one more time. When I think about how much time and energy my friends have put into helping me make this dream a reality I am so grateful. To make something like this a success it goes so far beyond what one person can do. Over the past 1 1/2 yrs I have experienced what the power of a community can do. From the people who have helped out in so many ways to the people who have supported us with their time and money as customers. You are all the true reason Dru's exists! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

I have had several people comment on our new discussion group, Theology on Tap, and most of the comments have come with a very blank look. This is a program that Tim Meadows of Holy Trinity spoke with me about over a year ago. He thought it was a great idea to go out into a comfortable non-intimidating place and talk with people about spirituality if they wanted. This is not a come to the bar and get converted thing. But it is an open discussion about things like religion, spirituality and faith. Tim's schedule has not allowed him to facilitate the group, but he did send TroyAnn by to speak with me about giving it a try.
I am excited to offer this program. There are people in our community that don't feel comfortable going to "church" and they may not have anyone to talk too about these types of subjects. The minute you mention religion or politics in a bar someone always says they are taboo subjects. Well we thought we would try and change that! This is not a self help group or radical religious fanatics! It is a group of intelligent adults talking and sharing ideas. Its purpose is to provoke thoughts and exchange ideas.
For many people the bar is not just a place to go party, It becomes akin to going home to spend time with family and It is where friendships develop and a since of belonging comes to be. It is not always about drinking, but more about feeling a part of something. We welcome the opportunity be a part of this program and hope any of you that would like to participate join us on Thursdays at 6:30p.

As I sit here working on the new website on a rainey Thursday afternoon, I have to tell you how thankful I am for being a part of this adventure. It has been one of the best experiences of my life. I would have never dreamed that owning a bar would be where I found myself!
I am thankful for each and everyone one of you who have helped make this possible through your support, physical assistance and/or willingness to chose to spend your money here. You will never be taken for granted!
I am committed to earning your continued support and loyalty! We will work hard to make each visit a wonderful experience! We will continue to support our community in anyway that we can and never forget that it is you that makes all this possible!
I am so thankful for this and everyday that I can come to this place and work for each and every one of you!
