Dunkirk Boardwalk
What a Joke

Buffalo, NY

#1 Apr 1, 2009
Did you see the article in the paper today that the Boardwalk is looking for new tennants? There is a reason people are moving out, they are treated like Crap. When they were going through the application process before the boardwalk first opened, I had no interest, and they practically begged me to fill out the application because they wanted me to go down there. SO I filled in out and went for the interview. My husband and I sat accross a lot of people who looked down on us and snubbed their noses at us. They kept asking why I want to go to the Boardwalk and my husband kept telling them, you called us, we didnt call you. They lauged and made a joke of it. After wasting a lot of our time they sent us a rejection letter. About a month ago they called me and wanted ME to reconsider. What a Joke. I would never do business with this bunch of snobs who think they are better than everyone else and act like they have money. I know where a lot of them work and I know my income well exceeds theirs, but they are the ones looking down at me? I make a good living and I run a good business. I don't act like I am better than other and I don't treat people like crap. My mother raised me better than that.

From the sound of things your Mother did a great job with you. But, you must let us know what it was they did. How did they make you feel and how are they now begging you to reconsider. I think we should all get to know just what the problems are with the chosen few who take from the area and do nothing but laugh at the rest of us for paying for it all! They take jobs in Dunkirk and then live someplace else, that needs to come to an end as well!

They have recently called me a couple of times and asked me to reconsider, after they are the ones that turned me down in the first place. They looked down on us during the interview. They asked way to many questions about my income that I did not feel was appropriate. I do not think that it is fair to any business considering moving to the boardwalk to have to disclose their income. I know they want successful businesses there and I understand that, but I would not discuss my finance with them or my future plans with them. I do not think they realized the amount of business that I have, my annual income is over $100,000, and my business expands every year. I also bring a great deal of business to others. They were so busy looking down their nose at me and treating us like trash, I did not disclose any information and I laughed the whole way home. I am always the person who gives, I can raise a lot of money in fundraisers and I am a very generous contributer to charities and events, I have lavish parties for my friends and family and I would have been a great addition to the Boardwalk location. I still see some of these people on the street, I always say hello and they always stick their nose in the air and turn the other way. My business is already successful and I have great employees who work very hard for me and they know that they are appreciated. I know that many people feel the same way that I do, and we do not deserve to be treated this way from people that we do not even know.

I agree, I'll stick to drinking margaritas in the back yard with friends instead of hanging around these snobs. Life is good!

Who did you have to talk to and why? Why do they have to approve your business going there? I had heard that people had to be approved to be tenants and I'd never heard of such a process before. I've only been to that place once, and I couldn't understand why they would pick the places they did. A tie dye shop? A place with cigars? Seems odd. Went in the restaurant and there wasn't really any food there. Just like bakery things. I did hear there's a place to get a drink going in, and that's kinda nice. At least you can have a beer or a wine on the little deck or whatever. Should have had that last summer.

It is a big committee of members that vote to approve you or not, I guess it is just their process, but they were very snobbish, they wanted to know a lot of personal details about my business, financial information, etc. I really do not think that is any of their business, they also wanted to review my business plan. In between asking us questions, they talked among themselves about the party they were going to attend that evening.

I heard a few businesses have left already and only a couple of them are doing well. I also heard (and I do not know if it is true,) that it is going to be a gay bar that is moving in.

Why would they put a gay bar in Dunkirk. Think about it..Do we really need to add hate crimes to Dunkirk's problems. You know how the natives get when they get beer balls on!

I know it is hard to believe, that is just what I heard, it is especially hard to believe since it is my understanding that Heenans is opening the bar, so I am not sure if that is true or not, I saw in on one of these posts, it may be the Silver Creek Topix, I agree they do not need any more problems in Dunkirk. Hopefully this is not true

Hey Joke if it is hard to belive ask Heenan. I am sure he'll tell you.
It was in the paper

No. It was in the paper a few weeks ago that it was Heenan doing the bar. They had some kind of meeting of that board and they said that they got a liquor license for the place approved. Not that the paper is always accurate but it seemed to have a lot of information on it.

I have no problem asking Mr. Heened that question, I just do not hardly ever see him. I stop at Muldoons a couple of times a year but that is about it, I am not a big fan of the bar scene, but I like to stop their once in a while to see a relative that works there. But as far as asking him, I would have no problem with that.
Dunkirk Food Court

Just seen in the paper today, a pizza place is going to the boardwalk. Can we get anymore food there and if they are trying to attract tourists, how many people will actually be able to fit inside this place with their families to sit down and enjoy pizza? What are these people thinking, it is going to be a food court

I find it amusing and comical but have no idea where the gay bar comments came from..laughing..........so let me tell you what we will be doing....beer and wine license, a few sandwiches, beef on weck, smoked pulled pork, and some other specialty sandwiches. We will have a hot dog cart serving of course hot dogs, burgers and italian sausage. Also, planning on serving peel and eat shrimp. A small menu nothing fancy.....the name of the pub will be Spike Daileys which is named after a bar that was located on Third Street before the seventies, the name was suggested to me by a friend Bob Ehrheart. Thought it was a great catchy name, plus a name from Dunkirks past. As you may know the square footage is very small, less then 400 square feet in 6 or the units, so we are going to have some fun with it and market it as New York States Smallest Pub. Looking forward to having alot of fun and laughs at Spikes...Thank you, Shaun.....p.s. planning on being open mid May

Thanks for all the info, I think I read that it was going to be a gay bar on the Silver Creek Topix. I wish you all the best success in your new venture on the Boardwalk. Tell Josh Savali his Aunt Carol said hello.
