Restaurant makes special delivery

Sunday morning, rain had dampened the spirits a touch, but we all still jumped in our cars and headed to the arranged meeting spot for the Seaside Cruizers’ Show ’n Shine.

Three of the ladies decided to stay behind and join us at a more reasonable hour.

Before they were to meet with us they decided to go to Deez Bar &Grill for breakfast, as we had heard rumours it was very good. Breakfast was a buffet-style menu and everyone had their fill. It was now time to call a cab and head up to the show. The manager/owner made the call on behalf of the ladies and was taken aback once he heard it would be over an hour wait for the cab to make it to his restaurant.

Not wanting to disappoint his customers, he threw his keys to the waitress and instructed her to drive the three ladies to the show ’n shine. Our club display was on Beach Road and Second Avenue, and this waitress got them within one block of our cars.

She would take nothing for her troubles, and headed back to work.

As a club, we are going to send this restaurant a wall certificate of thanks. I just wanted to spread the word locally of a small bar and grill that went so far out of its way just to help a few tourists attending your show.
