Making friends and doing business the old fashioned way

The Sandusky History Blog reminds us that tonight at 6:30 p.m., Ron Davidson will present a talk at Sandusky Library on this history of taverns in our fair city.

"The neighborhood tavern was often a center of social life for men (rarely women) in Sandusky, particularly before the Prohibition era," according to the blog. "It was a place to meet friends, make business contacts (or even conduct business), listen to music, sing along with others, or just serve as a respite from the drudgery of work."

You can register for the talk by calling the library at (419) 625-3834. Registration is not required. The Sandusky Library is located at 114 W. Adams St.

Now Taverns are a place to put up with idiots, Drunks and social misfits while they drink themselves into oblivion and then pray to god they dont mug you in the parking lot on your way to your car which has been noticed by the police to be harrassed on your journey home. Thats progress for you.

Oh im sure there were places where scoundrels frequented BUT Im also pretty sure there werent EVERY tavern. There is no real place in or around sandusky to just walk in a catch a drink in a nice sociatal* setting without paying a arm and a leg for "Working folks"

* I dont even know if thats a word lol.

There are still traditional way of doing this type of idea, but due to conistent modern ways of marketing, they are almost gone.
