Sometimes, it really does seem like there are people everywhere who know Dave or at least recognize him from the bar.

Tonight, we were eating dinner in a fast-food chain in Overland Park. A guy sitting at the next table with his family got up to leave, and suddenly he said "Hey Dave, I really love what you've done with the Sandbar."

He went on to say that he and his wife had their post-wedding-reception party at the bar, and he thanked Dave for all the fun times.

Now, granted, Dave was wearing a Sandbar shirt. Which seems like all he wears sometimes. In fact, one of these days soon we're going to have a contest called "how many Sandbar shirts does Dave own," kind of like those "guess how many jelly beans are in this jar" contests.

Anyway. And he IS almost seven feet tall, which instantly makes a person memorable to the rest of the shorter world.

But it's still pretty cool that our cheesy little paradise has made such an impression on so many people, and that they're not afraid to stop in random places and tell Dave about it.
