news from behind the bars...

May 15, 2012

Today marks my first post as an OSR intern and I have quickly learned that there is never a dull moment here. In my brief time working as an intern, I have seen hundreds of people daily from all over the world.  This week alone, we have had around 150 motorcyclists stop in for a tour as part of their Bike Week event and received visitors from Germany and Japan, which isn't too shabby for our little establishment. Being a local, it is easy to forget how this place can draw you in. There is something magnetic about the building, once you come here; there is always a part of you that wants to come back. Luckily for me, I get to be here almost every day, which means I get an inside look at all the fun and adventure that comes with being a member of the OSR team.  From the daily visitors to the dedicated volunteers, OSR brings people in and takes hold and in my opinion, is one of the best places to be, so I will be reporting in on all the news from behind the bars...
