Blessings Galore

January took off with a bang and continues to be fantastic. In this lousy economy with so much unemployment I expected business to slow down but God continues to blow my socks off with His blessings. I decided a long time ago to thank Him every day for all I have and everything He continues to do for me and I believe that it is a good practise for everyone. When you dwell on the good things in life the hurtles are much easier to tackle. As we kick off a New Year lets all be more thankful and thoughtful and make our crazy little corner of the world a better place to be.

Giants World Series Trophy Rally

Everyone was moving a little slowly New Years Day but we had a nice turn out for our Giants party. If you haven't heard yet we are trying to bring the World Series Trophy to Hollister. It is going on tour and all of the destinations have not been decided on yet. We think Hollister is full of Giants faithful fans that deserve to see the trophy up close and personal. In my sixteen years at Johnny's the night the Giants won the series was one of the best I can remember. The team spirit and camaraderie that rocked my bar that day was indescribable. We're asking that all of our fans let the folks in the Giants front office know how much it would mean to us to have the trophy here. Email your inspirational requests, pictures and videos to

Together we can make this happen.

A wild and fun filled week

It's been a busy week with lots of events and a great time was had by all. New Years Eve was awesome. We stayed busy all day and a record breaking 45 people joined us for dinner. We had a fantastic Karaoke with lots of singing and dancing. I had the unusual pleasure of having a lot of family here to ring in the New Year with. Hollister Taxi did their best to keep up; they had four cars and a van for larger groups, but when a driver flaked on them at the last minute it threw everything off. People waited for a long time for their rides and my family's non-drinkers jumped in and helped which resulted in a hilarious video. Hollister Taxi owner Liz felt terrible about the slow response time. I know how it feels to have people you are counting on back out on you at the last minute. I suffered severely because of just that problem through many motorcycle rallies. Thanks Liz for doing your best. We love you. It was one of the best New Years Eves ever and I want to thank all of the wonderful people that joined us. We hope you'll be back next year.
