Here’s The Scoop

Well…once again BCbythesea respected what was ..”off the record” and did not “scoop” on the Friday Night Jazz on the Square….

The Times did…with a newsflash…

BCbythesea respectfully disagrees with the assertions from the Times…

A special meeting for “public safety” could have been called…due to the “crowds” expecting Friday Night Jazz to occur…

Also…due to any 2 Commissioners having the right to call a meeting…a fact that was not adhered to by the Administration when Comm. Dodd and Clottey wanted such a meeting last month… and had to inform the town that was indeed allowed ….after the fact….

BCbythesea….looks for ways to be flexible and accommodating towards our businesses….

Dave Gadsby and the other restaurants are what gives credence to LBTS being a viable destination… for those coming over the bridge…

Why not look as a town for a “happy medium” until all the kinks could be straightened out in a few weeks time?

One idea….Let them have the band…the tables…and only the inside bar….an informal town extension…

Last Saturday BCbythesea and hubby were in Fort Lauderdale…A1A…we had people walking in front of us with BUCKETS…sand buckets full of a drink…going up and down the strip…along with others and their respective beverages…walking as the music played at each restaurant…with people sitting outside on both sides of the road…

A permit was granted for a bar on the corner …at the new 101 Ocean…patrons are drinking beyond the seated area…as they are at Aruba…and the Village Grille….no problems… just happy patrons……

Was it not …so often …pronounced …that a future vision of the square is to be pedestrians only…walking from establishment to establishment …drinks included…we are sure..

Someone in charge should have tried to work this one out…

in my humble opinion…
