I’ve often talked to bartenders and wait staff about the most effective way to say “Thank You” for good service, and the overwhelming response has always been, “With a good tip.” Sure, it’s nice for people to say a heartfelt verbal “Thank you.” A handshake or even a hug can be appreciated. But they’re working to pay the bills, and nothing says, “Job well done” like a little extra cash.
So we hope you’ll settle for this written thank you. You walked into a bar to relax and have a good time, you weren’t expecting to have your words taken down and put out for potentially dozens of people to read. So many of you welcomed us like friends on our initial meeting. Thank you to all of you who talked to us in bars and answered our questions.
Thank you also to those of you who read this blog regularly -- or even on occasion. We started this adventure so we could understand community a little better. Part of that understanding came from those bar visits, but part of it has come from your responses to this blog.
