Actually, I wasn’t happy about it at all.
On Friday afternoon around five o’clock, I walked into Sully’s at 700 Race Street downtown just to have one drink and make a few calls on my cell phone before heading home. The plan seemed simple enough.
The first thing I noticed when I walked in is that there were few customers. In fact, there were more employees than customers and those employees were just standing around talking to one another.
Now I’m a rather tall guy – kind of hard to miss – but standing at the bar didn’t get anybody’s attention.
In amazement, I stood at the bar for probably ten minutes. Finally a tall blonde girl walked over and asked if I needed anything.
Yes I needed something. I needed a damn drink.
I almost made a joke – thought abut telling this girl that I didn’t need a haircut before I walked into Sully’s but now I did. I figured she wouldn’t get the joke, so I just made my phone calls, drank my weak vodka and tonic, then left.
Perhaps this is a silly notion on my part, but maybe Sully’s happy hour business would improve if the people working there would actually start working. They need to pay more attention to people who walk through their door.
