As I mentioned in my blog entry yesterday, I visited La Gran Via de Aguada one last time on Wednesday night, but I didn’t have a chance to shoot. Here’s what happened. Earlier in the evening, I had dinner again with some colleagues at the Ocean Front Hotel & Restaurant, then returned to the hotel with a couple friends to enjoy some nachos and drinks and watch the last game of the World Series. After a few innings, we decided to call it a night. As my friends headed to their rooms, I snuck out the side door of the lobby, and headed back to La Gran Via de Aguada for one last visit. After arriving, I found that all the pool tables were taken, and there was a line of people waiting. “No problemo,” I thought. I decided to grab a Medalla, sit back, and wait my turn while watching some of the locals shoot. After an hour and a half had passed, there were still no tables available, and no sign that one would be available anytime soon. I decided to call it a night.
On the way back to the hotel, I thought about the evening. Twice before in the last two weeks, I had arrived at “La Gran” at night, and found all the tables taken. Obviously, there are a lot of people who want to play, but there just simply aren’t enough tables. Here’s a quick market analysis for you: The two best places to play on the west coast of Puerto Rico are Eggys located in Aguadilla and La Gran Via de Aguada in Aguada. Eggys doesn’t have any professional tables, so if you’re serious about pool, La Gran is your only option. However, La Gran’s tables are frequently occupied, so there’s a good chance you will be turned away.
What’s that I hear? BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY!!
So for those of you looking for a good business idea and a good market for it, I say head down to the northwestern coast of Puerto Rico. Yes, just brush up on your Spanish a little, scrape together as much cash as you can, and head to the Enchanted Isle. There’s definitely a market demand that is not being met. After a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck, you might be able to build yourself an empire. And after a hard day of work, you can wash away your cares with a little cerveza, enjoy a bowl of skirt steak mofongo, and listen to the gentle rhythmic sound of crystal blue waves crashing on white sandy beaches. The sky’s the limit!
