During the winter I get to hang out with my buddy Big Bob Thomas who has a place down here in South Florida. (pictured above with a couple of our Duffy’s girlfriends and me) What Bob who is from Northern Pennsylvania and I like to do is search for funky bars all over West Palm Beach which also have great happy hours.
With getting happy in mind, we headed out to Johnny Longboats on Singer Island whose Happy Hour started at one. After having a little lunch and then enjoying ourselves there for a couple of hours with adult beverages, we decided to check out a recently renovated bar called The Old Florida Draft House on our way over to Duffy’s.
Once there and settled in at the bar, Amber (pictured on top) brought Bob a bottle of Coors Light and me a decent red. As we sat there drinking while watching her walk around behind the bar, we both agreed that they had done a hell of a job with the renovation. In fact, the place almost looked as good as Amber.
At some point, an attractive blonde sat down beside me and told Amber that she was there for a job interview. Amber said to her that there were two ahead of her, but she would alert the owner about her presence. I introduced myself, and she told me that her name was Holly and that she was from a town in Tennesee just outside of Nashville. As we chatted about how big Nashville was getting, a gentleman came over and said that he was John the owner, and he was ready to see her now.
However, being a nice person, Holly pointed to a guy who was sitting in a booth just in back of Bob and said, “I think he was here before me.” The owner thought she meant my buddy Bob, so he walked over, shook Bob’s hand and said, “And just what kind of work are you looking for big guy?” The astonished look on Bob’s face almost made me fall off my bar stool laughing.
After things got straightened out and Holly finally got to go back for her interview, John the owner came out a few minutes later and said to me, “Would you hire that girl?” When I said, “Absolutely,” he responded with, “I may have to make you my new personnel director ’cause I’m going to hire her, and I’m telling her that you made me do it.”
When Holly was on her way out, she came over and gave me a huge hug and said, “Thank you so much for your help.” I’ll probably be spending a lot of time in the future at The Old Florida Draft House because I’ve got a feeling that a warm welcome or two may be waiting for me there?
When the rest of showbiz, Hollywood, Broadway, and the music industry is looking for new leaders, I rather doubt that they search for them in the broadcast community.
I understand that this season, each episode of GOT cost more to produce than the entire first season did. Thank God radio would never do anything that stupid, eh?
