I’ll be doing a full write up on Dan (the owner) sometime soon, but I didn’t want to wait even a second longer to let people know what I thought. 15 years ago, I stopped by this place with my brother to play some pool. That was long before I became fascinated by the world of self employment and entrepreneurship. I have to admit, I hadn’t been back until tonight.
Well, things look different to me now. These days, I’m on a mission to help the community to see local business owners as artists. Local businesses are doing their best to keep us connected to each other. Local businesses are the heart of makes a community. We don’t need another Walmart or another Verizon store (I have a Verizon phone BTW and don’t mind driving to the mall when I need to go to a Verizon store. I don’t need one closer.). These mega corporations are siphoning money out of our cities and into their global bank accounts, leaving only enough left to pay the staff. In exchange, they provide less than a hand shaking “how’s-your-family” feel and they funnel us through their systems like cows in a feed line.
Darrell’s Tavern is one of those places you need to stop by to see if it feels good to you. Introduce yourself to Dan and let him know who you are. Rather than just shopping locally when it comes to your food, try going out for a beer to a local establishment. Try Darrell’s Tavern. Stay tuned for more.
