CoViD-19 San Diego Numbers Still Trending Up | Bar Pink Sells To CH | County Reports 17 New Community Outbreaks


Better days at Bar Pink (Taken 2.17.2020)

For 13 years, Bar Pink has been everything for me: a place to see live music, a place to catch up with friends, a place to have a date night within walking distance of home, a place to catch late night drinks after shows at other venues, a place to people-watch, a place to call home. The way the bar and staff welcomed me over the years (and sponsored this website when nobody else would) will never be forgotten. I don't know specifics about the deal beyond what's been covered in the media, and I don't need to be one of the people pestering Dang or Robin or Tara or Ami or any of the other great people to get an inside scoop, but we're in a pandemic and we know that bars and venues have largely been left behind with stimulus concerns: first to close and last expected to open, besides maybe theme parks, but even then, we don't have the clout nor outdoor options that they do. So today was a really sad day as the news spread. And I'm sure there will be more information and Bar Pink will speak when they're ready instead of letting speculation and gossip run rampant. A sad day indeed. I will be pouring a few tonight in their honor. 
In personal updates, our bathroom is almost done though where the floor meets the tub still looks like shit and I don't know how they're going to resolve that. Darren broke his phone about a week ago and so he's going through the nightmare of trying to transfer his old stuff, but his shoulder is doing better so that's a plus. And we're still quasi-quarantined which has a direct correlation to how much online shopping I've been doing. I've got a newsletter to send out, so I'm gonna peace out and will catch up with you tomorrow.
