Throughout the years, we enjoyed our patron’s company. We may no longer be around, however we oftentimes think back to the great times that we had. While our job was to serve you, we thoroughly appreciated all the conversations. After closing our doors all that we have now are fond memories. To all of our regulars, you’re like family to us!
That said, we’d like to remember a few of our frequent guests. In the coming months we’ll be highlighting our favorite characters. We call them that, because they know they are and love them for being just that!
Today, we’d like to remember our buddy, Cliff. Cliff would show up at least three times a week and frankly, held down the bar! He’d always welcome new guests with open arms. If anybody had an “in” at the bar, it was definitely him and he was proud of it. After a long day at work (I think he worked for a tow company in Kearny), he always shared his “stories of the week.”
Most of the time, these would be about his top interactions of all of his favorite customers of the week. Kind of like an Uber driver, a tow truck driver meets a lot of new, random people with every service call. We always enjoyed those stories. Cliff was always able to recognize, just why certain customers came into his life. There’s an old saying that “everyone comes into your life for a reason” and Cliff always set out to discover why. Every story that he shared with us had impactful meaning for anyone that listened.
Cliff always enjoyed his job. He rarely talked about a bad customer. And when he did have one, he understood why they were in his life at the moment and what they were going to teach him. Now even though Cliff was a regular, we know that he loved our spot for wonder friendships and interactions. To this day, he’s still a social butterfly, however nowadays, he’s retired in Florida, enjoying Jimmy Buffet and the beach life.
We salute you, Cliff! Thank you for all your business and most importantly your friendship and those epic stories. Now, whenever we see a tow truck nearby, we cannot help but think of you as probably the friendlies tow truck driver in eternity.
