Local business still busy while classes out of session

During the school year, most of downtown Bowling Green is bustling with students frequenting in and out of shops and telling their friends what good deals they

got or what the new food is that they tried from

a particular restaurant.

In the summer the businesses still remain, but as in any town, every business has a plan when classes let out and students are home. Businesses in Bowling Green depend upon the people in the city to keep them alive, and often the locals do not stop coming in simply because classes are not in session.

“Surprisingly, business has not really slowed down at all considering that school left out a couple of weeks ago,” Charlie Emenhiser, a bouncer, disc jockey and server at City Tap, said.

He also talked about how the owners adapt to the change in the year. A couple of ways they adapt to the change is by looking at food costs and liquor orders and then will decide from there about how much to order.

“We still do a lot of specials during the week,” Sarah Bonham, a barternder and server at City Tap, said.

Right now, City Tap is running a special on its wings for 34 cents.

“Getting 12 wings for under five dollars is a deal,” Emenhiser said.

City Tap keeps the same menu and runs the same weekend schedule and City Tap is known in Bowling Green for its burgers and wings, Emenhiser said.

“Last summer was really great for us, and so far this summer has proven to be a great start,” said Rick Ault, One49 owner.

Various members of staff at One49 felt that locals remember how wide open their bar is as well as their pinot bombs.
