    Ceruleans is closing down entertainment too

    Something about a diabetic dog owner upstairs

    Managers went upstairs after the complaint by the property owner
    Could not hear anything
    Owner turned off AC
    Could not hear anything
    Owner turned off dishwasher, fridge, fans
    could not hear anything
    Plus it ends at 9-10

    But "The dog gets upset"
    So no more entertainment at Ceruleans.

    Folks, we need y'all to contact Joe and make a stand to help stem the flow of these closures / stoppages at 331 and elsewhere.
    If we dont band (no pun) together and stand up for ourselves then nothing will happen and the wrinklies that come here twice a year that dont participate in ANYTHING but just moan about everything
    "win"

    Question
    Why buy above a shopping area/bar/ unless expecting to hear SOME activity
    duh

    Maybe Cerulean's can move? I would like to see them get fun again.

    We went almost every weekend last winter into spring, then it seemed like most of the entertainment was aimed at a crowd that liked a little music with their wine instead of a little wine with their music. OK- I'll just say it- boring. No energy. The place was humming and bursting at the seams in the off season, then we stopped by a few weeks ago and it was as dead as a doornail.

    Yeah, they've changed the hours so Ceruleans doesn't stay open past seven (how much wine do they expect to sell by seven?), and now it doesn't open until 10. Thus, they had no more need for yours truly. It is a sad thing. As I told any one that would listen, I thought we had great potential, but WaterColor lacks vision, and ambition, and... well it was just very frustrating seeing how little the "powers that be" cared.

    But I'm not giving up on my dream just yet. I, and a small band of artists and fellow underdogs are working toward opening our own gallery/ lounge. But no longer hamstrung by Watercolor's short-sightedness. After we clear the first few hurdles, I'll leave some updates here.

    In the mean time, this pirate is shopping for a new employer. :D

    Don't be mistaken. JOE cares. Unfortunately, they care only about the share price which has dropped more than 50% in a short period of time.

    The pocket book vote is the one that matters for all local businesses. Why would a person call St. Joe if they aren't going to Cerulean's in the first place? Places open and close regularly around here because it is still a seasonal market and tough to survive on 3 months income. Some small places can do it but larger entities have other things going on.

    50 years from now all the little corner spaces on Scenic 30A will have awesome bars and restaurants, funky little places with all kinds of different music. Until we get some wear and tear around here they will come and go.

    Very sad. I, like JDarg loved going during the off season until things seemed to change. It will be nothing without the entertainment, I can get wine at home....and save a lot of $$$. So they are closing at 7:00 now???? What's the point??

    Now there's a comforting thought.

    I bet in 50 years they'll just have one BIG building and everyone will put on a pair of virtual reality goggles and a headset and select their own nightlife venue (date included).

    By that time, I'll have a box seat at a Pavarotti performance.

    I recently noticed that Bill Evette (sp?) Is playing there on Thur nights for their wine tastings -- $15 per person.

    Cerulean's is typically open until 7:30.

    They ARE doing live music again, with limited hours, and working around the schedule of the people & their dog upstairs, so it can vary. I was told thurs & fri 6-8 is live music and wine tastings.

    I missed this earlier.

    6-8 hardly gets things going, bummer.

    will i am, I don't think it's cerulean's per se, but the past management that just ran the place into the ground. once Anne Hunter was removed, the next manager had no clue as to how to 'manage', was blatantly surly, had no art or retail sense, and things went downhill fast, with patrons and employees fleeing faster than the ship could sink. It's a shame, because what cerulean's once was was pretty cool.

    Cerulean's should have better hours/events soon. A little bird told me that the stupid hours were just a corporate ploy to skew the stats so that they will show a marked improvement under the auspices of new management. :bang:

    Interesting. We were hearing that it was do to a complaint from residents living above Ceruleans objecting to the noise, but that sounds better than, we are cutting back wages and replacing managers with hourly people, at much cheaper rates.
