The following picture is a screen shot of Papi Tino’s music listings for the week on their website:
When I first checked it out, I thought to myself, ‘wow that’s a pretty late show for a Wednesday night.’ But even though I work really early hours, sometimes I’ll make an exception and go out on a “school night” if I’m excited about who’s playing. And I was excited about who was playing. So excited, in fact, that I sent Justin Sherburn a friend request on Facebook so that he could see by looking on my website that I was coming to see him. And to my great pleasure and surprise he actually accepted my friend request AND he sent me a message thanking me for putting him on my website. How cool, right?? Well, even after I suffered through a 45 minute drive in horrible traffic on I-35, I was still greeted with disappointment when I arrived at Papi Tino’s. I spoke to a server about the music for that evening and he told me, “Oh, Justin Sherburn? He’s already done. He plays during dinner service. He started at about 7:30.” I was like, “WHAT?? It says the start time is 10:30 on the website.” He sorta shook his head and smiled and told me he wasn’t surprised. AY!! Come on people!! It’s 2012!! If you have a business it’s super important to be locked into technology. It’s cool Papi Tino’s has a website, but it really SUCKS that they don’t maintain it properly. This is NOT the first time that I’ve experienced issues with a site. In fact, the one thing I’m constantly surprised about is that so many venues don’t even have a website. Kinda blows me away in this day and age. I would’ve liked to hang out at this venue too. It’s a cute little converted house on the East Side that the server likened to Mexican Cantina food. I also really wanted to hear Justin Sherburn perform as I really dug the music I heard on his website. I just wish he would’ve noticed the start time I had listed for his show on my site and corrected me. It would’ve made a huge difference in my night and I would’ve made it on time. But alas, no such luck. And because of my lost opportunity and the late night, I was exhausted at work today and had no energy to go see my show that I had scheduled tonight. *sigh* I may have to find something good for this weekend!!
