Well, as you know, we’ve been feverishly changing things up around here to adapt to this thing that folks are calling the “new normal.” One of the benefits of being forced to adapt is how exhilarating it is having to re-imagine our surroundings and systems. My favorite project so far is, without a doubt, the remodeling of the famous Sidewinder Saloon. We have replaced over 90 seats with custom built booth seating. The benches were built by our own staff, including the cushioned seat pads. There is a glass barrier built in between the booths for protection. More importantly, you will experience an entirely different process than in years past. We are introducing a Host/Hostess this season who will assist all those looking for a table. When full, one can add their name to a wait list, place an order right then for takeout, or visit our other food venues. The cafeteria and Java Stop will be open 7 days a week all season and we will be opening a new “quick serve” venue, which we will announce very soon.
All in all, the changes we are implementing are great improvements not only for now, but for now on. Check out the pictures below. Seat pads and windows have yet to be installed, but I think you can still get the picture. Kudos to BL Holdinghaus, Jacob Pahlke, Mark Pietraniec, Matthew Miller, Malcom Wilber, and Greg Wolfgang for all their efforts. We also had guest appearances by our summer crew: Keelie Mackelvey, Bill Morgan, and Matthew Celommi. Love working with these folks … masks and all.
