Iâd ask how everybody is, but I have a feeling I know the answer. âItâs the economy stupid,â oh yeah and the Pats and now the Sox! How much more can we take? For the first time in a long time I really get the feeling we are all in this together, and maybe for the first time since my grandparents were my age, we may just have to get out of it together too. Teamwork. HmmmâŚ itâs not a new concept, but it kind of feels that way.
I was joking the other night that I wouldnât mind getting a bailout too. Perhaps someone could pay my Saks bill, or Neimanâs, Iâd even be okay with getting bailed out of my Macyâs bill. Then the conversation took an interesting and serious turn. Instead of looking for a bail out, someone asked, ââŚwhat is everyone doing to HELP out?â I know what I am doing. I am spending less, a lot less and when I do spend it, I do it locally. Those aforementioned credit cards are actually getting a lot less wear and tear.
I see the change in spending here at Scullers too. Folks are opting out of the dinner for some appetizers, maybe going to fewer shows per month than usual. I understand. We understand. That is what led me to think of what the âcollective weâ at Scullers could do to help out.
Starting in October, we will be releasing complimentary tickets to shows throughout each month. This is exclusively available to our email subscribers. A limited amount will be available for select shows and it is on a first reserve, first serve basis. We are offering up to 4 tickets per person because we want to introduce you to some of the newest additions on our roster of artists and in turn, we'd like you to introduce us to some of your friends.
We hope you'll use those tickets to invite friends who have never been to Scullers, maybe have never been to a live music performance or a jazz show before, or are just really struggling and could use a night out right now.
Our e-newsletter goes out the first Tuesday of every month. If you subscribe to our newsletter before then, or are already a subscriber check out the complimentary ticket button right there on the top, just click on the link. YOU MUST CLICK THE LINK TO REQUEST THESE TICKETS. There will be an option for several shows. Please give us a couple of options in case we are out of your first choice.
We want to be as fair as possible so we are limiting the complimentary ticket offer to 4 tickets per request, one request per month. We also hope if after you reserve, you will call us if you cannot make it, so we can offer it to another guest.
Times are tough and we all know weâll get out of it, but there is no reason you canât shut CNN off, get out and have a little fun. We just hope when you do, youâll be here with us!
Until next time, weâll catch you at the show.
