Way back in the day, I ran a BBS, that's a Bulletin Board System for those too young to remember what life was like before having access to the Internet. In fact, that little BBS was the only Public Internet access available at that time. Then AOL and Yahoo, both content providers, allowed access through what they called a doorway. It was a tremendous task keeping up with technology back then, and having the latest hardware so people could dial in on blazing fast 28800 modems. It got to the point where I could no longer support it financially, and had to many other obligations and priorities, so on April 1, 1996, I pulled the plug and was content to let technology pass me up. Now, 13 years later, I have decided that The Pastime needs to have a presence on the World Wide Web. So, we looked into a all the social webs sites, web pages, blogs, etc. and have worked hard at creating this presence. We are happy to announce that we have the following sites on the Internet:
Web Page @ http://www.pastimerestaurant.com/
FaceBook Group @ http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=97671103013&ref=ts
Twitter @ http://twitter.com/ThePastime
Myspace @ http://www.myspace.com/156468310
And this Blog @ http://pastimerestaurant.blogspot.com/
We will have a YouTube presence within the next month as we will film Game days, food prep, bands and more.
With these sites, you will receive news, updates, event information, history, menus, retail sales, coupons, specials, photos, and even be able to order food online.
It took awhile, but we are now out here. We hope to become better connected with our customers, past, present and future.
Well, that's my first Blog post. Lets see where are this leads us as we head into the future.
