While there's no question Cruisin Weekend was much smaller then past years because of the weather, please don't mislead viewers that business was way down because that's just not completely true.
Business in Ocean City might have been slower, (tickets/fines) however, that was not the case in West Ocean City. There are some of us, (me included) who have seen for decades that West Ocean City was going to boom. In fact, my friend Mark Odachowski recently purchased the Alamo Motel on Rt. 50 and immediately and completely remodeled the entire facility. Mark just cut a deal to put Mothers Cantina restaurant at that location as well. Considering our facilities connect, we will partner with this restaurant, (food) to be delivered to OC Billiards @ Trader Lee's.
There is a group of us who will be working diligently to market the West Ocean City boom in business as WE, (pictures shown on Saturday) enjoyed a major increase in business and NOT a drop in business, as WBOC suggested this morning. Obviously there are two sides to every Liberal story.
For those of you who traveled to Ocean City recently you will notice the parking lots to all of the new hotels on Rt. 50 being completely packed. West Ocean City is the future. We are all supporting each other and will ultimately make sure events like Bike Week or Cruisin Weekend will not disappear because Ocean City doesn't want them. We are a powerful group of people/businessmen, (not politicians) who will take over and make things right, as it should be.
