Letter to the Editor

Recently, my wife and I enjoyed a pleasant evening out and about in Downtown Saginaw with some friends. We visited Bourbon + Co. and the Bancroft Wine and Martini Bar. Upon entering Bourbon + Co. - we noticed that it was standing room only, a live band was playing, “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. We both ordered a drink and our conversation soon turned to how exciting it is to see up-scale dining and entertainment in downtown Saginaw and there being no shortage of patrons. I immediately reached for my phone and began to text my parents. I was excited to tell them about the robust turn-out, the enthusiastic atmosphere and that the band was playing their music and that they would love it down here. They said the next time that we go, they would love to join us, (next weekend!)
