New York reader remembers bar owner Bobby Dempsey

Dear A.M. Costa Rica:

I was saddened to hear of the death of my friend Bobby.  I was a  resident of San José for many years and the owner of Nashville South Bar on Calle 5 for about 5 years.

All of those years up until the last year of our operation, Bobby was a regular of mine, (always occupying the seat to the
left of the window), and we developed a close friendship.  The last year in the life of Nashville Bar, Bobby took over what was  the old Dos Gringos, and changed the name to Papi’s.  He did a great job turning the place around and (at least for me) made it the best destination for all of the expats in the area.  He will be missed by all who knew him, especially by me.  Gringo Gulch will not be the same without Bobby Dempsey, Goodbye my friend!
