So can we officially put the B&A rumor to rest.
Been here before. Would not hold my breath about it being ok. There are many, many similar cases where the management just dosen't get it and needs to be 're-educated'.
You can do a preemptive strike, or you can mourn over the ashes of your favorite watering hole after the management has their way.
Best idea is to move the establishment out of the danger zone (hopefully out of the subdivision completely because soon there won't be anything left of merit - all upscale potties you might go to once or twice for a function but certainly not daily).
Realize that the management, who probably fly in once a month or even less, detest 'casual' and don't like 'those kind of people', especially "bars", which "bring down the tone of the neighborhood".
Start a new drink called the 'Preemptive Strike" dedicated to moving the bar.
Look for suitable locations and tell everbody about them.
Especially tell the bar owners themselves that you would follow them anywhere, and to their faces - they're probably worried that if they move then no one will come, and the expense of moving may be the nail in the coffin if the attendance cannot recoup it quickly.
Makes me shed a tear for those that we have already lost to the horror of gentrification.

I'd definitely be into civil disobedience along with the rest of you if B&A were to be forced out.
SS, how about a GT sweatshirt and AG's?
That sounds like a great plan to me. I like the GT sweatshirt, I may wear my tacky ol' comfy Levis though. That OK?
Awesome BR....I want you on my side!!!! I'd be in elastic waist sweatpants myself. Maybe a shirt that says....HELL NO WE WON'T GO I'D LIKE A PLANTER'S PUNCH PLEASE!!!!
Where else, other than Bud and Alley's, can you find a bunch of girls tied to the bar? sounds like my kind of place. :funn:
Maybe we could get our "friends" we met that night that wanted to dance with us to come with us. We could chain ourselves to her!
May I have another Miller Lite please?
That would sure make for a nice comfy pillow for me, but watch out if you get chained to the gigilo (?) it might get HARD!
Gosh, we should all wear our Bud & Alley's T-shirts!
Ok, Ok don't drag out the chains just yet girls although I have to agree with SMJoe chained girls on the deck sounds interesting. There really is no limit to what I have seen up there after all these years.
Anyway, straight from the horses mouth. I am not loosing my lease at Bud & Alley's. In May I signed a lease for 2006. Robert Davis spoke with me and said they are going to develop the south side of the road later than the north side of the road. They just presented me with another lease renewal to go to the end of 2007 and I firmly expect with the length of time it will take to build the new downtown I could be in the present building through 2008 or more.
The future plan for us provides for a new building on the beach for Bud & Alley's roofdeck with a location across the street for the main restaurant. They would build me the new building first on the beach and we would move into it so there would be no missed sunsets.
I am very optimistic about Seaside's intentions for my future with Bud & Alley's. Currently they have been reluctant to give me multiple year leases because they want to be flexible with their timetable for the downtown build out. So keep your chains in the garage for now. Please pass the word, I can't seem to stop this rumor no matter how many people I talk to. Thanks to all of you for your support and good words about B&A's.
What are you talking about!!!!!!! :shock:
Thanks Dave. :clap_1:
Whew!!!!! Thanks for the good news!!!! One more thing to be thankful for.:clap_1:
Oh Dave...I thank you and more importantly, Miss Kitty thanks you! That sounds workable to us. As long as y'all are happy with the arrangement, those of us that LOVE being on TOP of B & A's will not chain ourselves to the bar unless asked to!!!! Does sound kinda' FUNN though!!!
Our "friends" at the bar...gttbm and I had the "pleasure" of meeting up with a very drunk woman (large chest...nice pillow) and her male friend (kept man...might get HARD) one night at the Tarpon Club. gttbm tried very hard not to make eye contact, but I will talk to anyone!!! The male friend took a liking to gttbm!!!
As Mr. Dave says...he's seen everything up there! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Yes, David, I adore Bud & Alley's. It's quintessential Seaside! BUD & ALLEY'S FOREVER!!!!!
good - one less thing to be worried about - did you know there is nobody overseeing components used in seawall/retaining wall structure? - you could put radioactive feces in the fill, and once it's covered (with the proper colored sand) its in there regardless - talking to walton county government is like talking to someone in another country - who speaks a different language that you've never even heard of or could find a book on - amazing!
i still say we should have a sit in to demonstrate our support of B&A's - 2.25 cent drink special that ends as soon as anybody gets up!
