Since we opened we have done penny beers for every Jet TD and have made some new Jet fans.
Last month I decided to do a meet up.com for the games. Got contacted but some OC Jet fan club that I had no idea existed. Said they wanted to come in and check it out for a pre season game (tonight) they had no home and thought we'd be perfect for the season, this was Tuesday. My response- great, the more the merrier, so on, so forth. Never had done anything for pre season games and hadn't planned to, but was needless to say, grateful.
Made an exclusive Jet menu, all my girls went out and bought Jet jerseys, knee high socks, etc. Hired an MC who was going to play music, do trivia during breaks, half time, etc. Wanted to make it an experience. Some of you old timers know I'm in the business, the guy I got is great, warms up crowd for one of the late night shows......
Anyhow, tons of prep, extra employees.....no call, no show. I text the guy, gets back to me a little bit ago and said they decided to go somewhere else that guys thought would be better for their group. There's not a Jet bar around. I tell him cool, no hard feelings, etc........
But man, I gotta say, what the eff is wrong with people...Is there no longer any consideration what so ever? Just seems as though this is has become acceptable behavior.
BTW- I feel alot more at ease about the Jets, and will be sitting at my bar week after week with the same people who have been there the last 4 years........
