Most bars have returned to normal, operating like pre pandemic. The biggest problem with bars right now is not the pandemic, it's that they need help and nobody wants to fill those positions.

Resignations are the highest on record — up 13 percent over pre-pandemic levels. There’s a surge in retirements with 3.6 million people retiring during the pandemic, that's over 2 million more than expected. And there’s been a boost in entrepreneurship that has caused the biggest jump in years in new business applications. There is a fundamental mismatch between what industries have the most job openings now and how many unemployed people used to work in that industry pre-pandemic. For example, there are 1.8 million job openings in professional and business services and fewer than 925,000 people whose most recent job was in that sector. There’s a similar mismatch in education and health services, where there are 1.7 million job openings and only 1.1 million people whose last job was in that sector. The Indeed.com job portal showed more than 2,000 job posts in the Fairfax County, Va., area for child care teaching assistants. Most paid $12 to $13 an hour, a bit less than many nearby fast food restaurants and retail stores. Nationwide, most industries have more job openings than people with prior experience in that sector, Labor Department data show. businesses are demanding that experience and low wages with unreasonable expectations.
low wage
degrees required for "entry level" positions
part time hours only
require full time availability for any schedule (meaning no second job)

here is an example of what is really happening

all the extra has already been cancelled, no more unemployment bonus, so that's not it.

Danny... I believe the bars that stopped offering entertainment will ultimately fail. Most people go to a bar for the entertainment it offers. Whether they have a DJ, karaoke, band, trivia, bingo, etc.... nobody is going to go to a bar that has nothing. It wouldn't be much fun now would it? Part of going out is to have fun... otherwise, I can just stay home and drink. Totally stupid move for a bar to offer no entertainment whatsoever to it's customers. They won't last very long.


Maybe people have changed during the pandemic, they don't want to go out and drink, party, when they are worried about food and shelter. The only thing that matters now is getting the pandemic behind us, once that is done then you can start rebuilding the entertainment industry. It is quite plain that the Mills aren't as interested in a party as they are about the future. The pandemic has changed things maybe for the better.

Yes it is not so much that the employers are truly desperate for workers, as much as they miss their slaves.

Ya know what? I want the name of each of the lodges and their locations, and the managers number. So I can call them and just see how they view "entertainment" and it's value now. And yes, I am serious. You know that I won't be taking your gig from you since I am hundreds of miles away, so your ego can still be stroked.

I think this might be what you're looking for... Elks Lodge 1740

My original plan was to to this for roughly 90 days or until the first of 2022. Nothing happening is changing my operational timeline, it looks like I will be able to go back to my retirement mode. Despite all the gloom and doom predictions of hosts I haven't destroyed the local entertainment structure. At one venue they are going to hire a band on a regular basis after my tour is over. So I have made work for, however, many persons are in the band hired. The reason I'm sticking to my original timeline is simple, with vaccinations and now medication available to fight the virus, we are finally putting the pandemic in the rear view mirror. That is at least in California which has strong mandates that are enforced.
