Live Music on Saint Simons Island

Real Estate Agent with Hodnett Cooper

My husband and I always swore that there were two things we'd never buy: a boat, and a restaurant. We live near the water now, so you might think we've been tempted to break our vow... and you'd be right! But we didn't buy a boat, we bought Locos, a (small) franchise bar and grill. It's been a lot of work, mostly for my husband, but there are some fun moments, too. We host a live band every Sunday night, so we are always looking for new talent. Last night after dinner we went to three local bars to hear new (to us) music; it's been a long time since I've been barhopping, but it was so much fun. We visited a small pub in the village, a beachy pizza joint (where the band was playing outside), and the bar in a large resort on the beach. We heard some great music and made some new friends... and slept in a bit this morning.

What a fun job, Anne Peck ... scouting for new talent.  Is that barhopping considered business expense?  LOL  Welcome to the world of ActiveRain blogging.  You'll find this platform a valuable resource where we freely share and learn from each others experiences.   Will look forward to seeing your future posts.

The restaurant/bar business is a lot of hard work, but with the right mindest can be very rewarding. I've always wanted to own a pizza place! Welcome to the Rain! :-)

I haven't been barhopping in many a long year. However a cruse ship and some rum go really well together.
