    Maid of the Mist Captain retires after 36 years

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    His first time out, Malcolm Bunting kept thinking that it goes against all common sense and seamanship to go toward a waterfall of that size.

    He did it anyway.

    That was 36 years ago.

    The giant waterfall was the Horseshoe Falls and his job was with the Maid of the Mist Steamboat Company.

    “I had never carried passengers before and I kept thinking, ‘Oh my God, what am I doing here.’ Over the years you get used to it and it becomes routine,” said Cpt. Bunting.

    The 63-year-old retired Wednesday night after making his final trip.

    Changes at Dave & Buster’s on Clifton Hill

    I mentioned before about seeing a job ad for a mini-golf attendant at the Dave & Busters’s on Clifton Hill. Well, it seems that quite a bit is going on there. I haven’t gone in to see, but apparently there is a “lazer tag” attraction open now.

    Note: The pixel board sign is new as well.

    A few days ago a large wooden enclosure was put over one part of the front.

    They may be hiring for various positions, but it appears that the mini-golf permit hasn’t been issued yet.

    From Niagara This Week:

    Prospective employees braved long lines and wait times for their chance to serve a cheeseburger in paradise.

    Margaritaville Canada Ltd. hosted a job fair at the Niagara College Maid of the Mist campus on Dunn Street from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on April 8-11. According to vice-president of operations Stephen Deere, the Jimmy Buffett-themed restaurant is looking to fill 280 positions ranging from servers and cooks to retail workers and stilt walkers.

    Four hundred people had been interviewed by 1:30 p.m. of the first day, according to Deere, who expects at least 2,000 applicants over the four-day period.
