Latest in a series of posts on the coronavirus
I see positives from this response [see “The Mob at Molly’s”] to what became an out of control situation.
First, Chaz Patrick took responsibility for what appears to be an unanticipated circumstance.
Second, he’s working on solutions.There’s a learning curve on all of this. Patrons need to act responsibly. If police were present, I think it would have been a good idea for them to step in and disperse this crowd, but I say that without having been present. It may have not gone well if they had.
I don’t know Chaz well, although I’ve eaten at his establishment. I just don’t “hang out” at bars/restaurants per se. My impression is that he’s a good business owner in Bethlehem who is very conscientious about contributing to the community, and we all have to trust that processes he puts into place will rectify this situation.
I will definitely make a point of stopping by Molly’s for lunch very soon!
