Why no refreshments offered at Sounds on the Square?
June 28, 2013
Havre, the "pride of the Hi-Line." in the Treasure State of Montana ... but do we have some whiners among us?
The summer fun activities are wonderful, especially Sounds on the Square on Wednesday evenings. However, in attending the very first musical showcase featuring the amazing Blind Luck, we were disappointed there was not going to be refreshments sold during the melody extravaganza.
We heard, through the grapevine, the reason food is not being sold is because local merchants feel selling food would take away from their own eatery establishments.
Come on! One night of music, once a week, for a few weeks is not going to make or break a business. And I do feel disappointment. Havreites seem like truly friendly and happy folks. I'm wondering who is the culprit or culprits doing the whining.
After working, there is just enough time to get to the Square, let alone go home or go out for dinner, it would be nice to have refreshments at the Square. I do not believe the merchants are making much money on Wednesday nights, anyway, so many folks brought their own food.
