Big Love for Playa Legend Captain Dave
A few days ago, many Playa del Carmen residents,including our family, received a message from Miss Sarah, Captain Dave's sister up in Memphis Tennessee. It seems after a battery of tests, doctors have discovered that our favorite pirate has small cell cancer that has taken up residence in various areas of his body. Captain Dave is one of our oldest and most fascinating friends in Playa and we have no doubt that he will fight this battle with his everything he's got. According to my pal John, Memphis is home to some of the best cancer research and care facilities in the country and our dear friend Dave is in the best possible hands with the oncologists at The West Clinic.
So, while the Captain is up north of the border fighting the good fight, we are all down here in Playa sending our prayers and most positive energies in his direction. Last night, the bar was packed at Bad Boys. Everyone coming together to see how they might help and support Dave while he is away. It was a great night with Chris Bolister taking the stage to play all of our old favorites, songs that evoke fond memories of all the good times we have shared together at both Captain Dave's on 10th and Bad Boys Beach Bar.
Dave, if you are reading this, get yourself better and get back down here! We look forward to making many more memories with you. Until then,we will all be keeping an eye on things for you and taking lots of pictures for you to enjoy! I didn't bother this time to name everyone present. Consider the collective caption for all the pictures to read "People who love Captain Dave". Big love and hugs from all of us in Playa del Carmen and from all your fans scattered across the globe!
