Opening Night in
Well, Friday May 19th brought a lot of changes to the Abay Bar
Scene, Congratulations are in order for Skiff's, Downtown, And Dirty
Dog's for a lot of hard work getting their new stuff ready for the
season. If you haven't checked out the 3 Giant High Definition TV
units upstairs at Skiffs you really need to. The whole setup is
crazy, with a totally new sound system to boot. The picture below is
not a great picture but it gives you the general idea.
BTW: Congratulations also go out to Rob Reddick (sp) for running
down the street full tilt in dress clothes (Miami Vice Style), jumping in his Silver
Viper, flooring it back to "Downtown", missing out on the parking
spot he wanted out front by about half a second, really thinking
about going for it anyway, realizing the guy might back into him if
he tries, pulling up next to the poor guy and giving him THE LOOK, then looking
somewhat disappointed as he takes a few more
laps looking for another cool parking spot. That was frigin classic.
It has happened to us all Rob, but not quite like your version.
May Hail In Abay
This past Thursday, May 18th it was
These pictures were submitted to us by

Joey D was
recently spotted enjoying a Delicious Slice of Pizza at Cavallarios
I am not sure what is going on with with his
collar, but I do know that is an $80.00 dollar shirt. :) Be sure to check out the Joey D
Pizza Rap. Ladies, if you sing it when you pick up your pizza you
get a kiss.
His name's Joe D. and he's the Man
He's got Pizza and Wings in both his hands
One Arm near the fryer, one arm near the stove
He's a cookin machine ya'll, He's out of control
When people eat his pizza it makes them smile
It's so damn good some of them drive for miles
Fresh ingredients is really what it's all about
Smokin hot, piping fresh, and ready to take out!
Can anyone spot the
REAL Matt Ferency?
This picture on the left was submitted
by Tony Scott. Supposedly it is Che Guevara, who was a leader of the
communist overthrow in Cuba and was later killed by the CIA. Isn't
that nice? I hope nobody sees this and thinks he is still alive.
Local Celebrity Bartender Nick Schaefer has
guaranteed Matt's safety so there is nothing to worry about. Nick
jagermeister overdoses, so if you spot any Cubans or Black Suits
in town send them over to Nicks Bar.
Can anyone spot the
REAL Nick Schaefer ?
Folks, Johnny Truesdell is in love.
Is the Islander Building Haunted ?
According to local Ghost Hunter Dan Gable it just might
be. Check out the mysterious ORBS in these pictures that he
recently took. Are they just dust particles playing tricks with the
camera or are they spirits from beyond? Either way Captain seems to
be unaffected by them.
Congratulations to the
Thurs Night Dart Champs
Thanks to Skiffs for supporting the Dart League.

2006 St. Patrick's Party Photos are now in the gallery
The fun spot we knew as Bootleggers Nite Club is no
more, but it will always be remembered.
Bootleggers was the last old school nite club in the Bay. It was
the only large bar/dance club you could go and have a good time
without dealing with all the goofballs that some of the other clubs
used to attract. The place had history, Some of you may remember
when the building was called the Ragtime.
Now the Bay has lost one of it's best Dance Clubs / Hangouts. One
thing is for sure. Bootleggers will be missed. Scotty and Brent ran
a friendly and fun place and the great staff kept things fun.
Interesting Fact: Many of you do not know this but that building
actually played a part in how the Abay local "Critter" got his nickname when
someone said. "We got to find something for that little Critter to
do!" as he was always hanging around there as a young boy because
his brother Larry worked there. This information comes straight from
