Thanks Anna for coming here. I'm so glad you did. What you have purchased is very dear to so many folks, and I hope it can work its way out.
I know I've spent $40 at the bar every week since 1999. I know a lot of people who spend as much if not more. If the average was $12/per patron, that seems awful low to me, at least from what I see people consuming.
Putting Sierra on tap for Thursdays would be a big plus for our crowd. Don't know what the p/l margin is on a keg to $5 per cup, but we love that stuff.
One suggestion I have to the street team is to help promote the music with the music. There are lots of shows on the Archive, and maybe picking a set of your liking, or making a compilation of songs on a disc of that could be handed out along with promotional handbills. Just having the name of the band and Grateful Dead cover band at Brownies, may not be enough to get a fence sitter to come out for the first time. But if they get a disc along with the flyer and can listen to what's in store for them, it could be a big help and well worth the cheap cost of blank CDRs these days.
Thanks again Anna, for coming on and letting us know we have a ear with you. As you can see, we are eager to make this work. And its a good "night off" for your security staff when they don't have to break up a testosterone fight every fifteen minutes
