“& Hurricane Hunter Bar”
The Building at 200 North Beach Boulevard was built in 1903 to house the Sea Coast Echo Newspaper. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005 Ann Tidwell and her family restored the structure, reclaiming original beaded boards and exposing its massive wooden beams. Today, the Echo Building, as it is known to locals, remains one of the best examples of early 20th century architecture on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Now home to 200 North Beach Restaurant, this historic address features fresh seafood, savory steaks and favorite local dishes served with a special flavor of the area. We invite you to enjoy one of our specialty cocktails at the Hurricane Hunter Bar, reminiscent of Ms. Ann’s son-in-law, who served as a Hurricane Hunter himself. Ms. Ann and her Staff strive to make your visit here an unforgettable part of your Old Town experience. By providing outstanding food in a familiar and comfortable atmosphere, we hope you’ll find the charm of Bay St. Louis in every visit.
It suddenly dawned on me, I am being discriminated! Having traveled extensively throughout the world, I don’t anticipate such behavior. How nave of me! I am an African American female, in the state of Mississippi!
I responded to a hostess position at the 200 North Beach Restaurant, Bay St. Louis, MS. At 3:00 pm, it was not busy. I greeted the young hostess and informed her I was there to apply for the hostess position. She quickly responded we are not taking applications. I said, you’re not? You have an ad posted on the internet dated Feb 2, 2016. Today is the 3rd. (the ad stated to come in between 2 and 4 pm) She gave me an application and told me to have a seat over at a table. I asked her would she find out from the manager if they are taking applications. She never did go look for the manager, unless she was talking to her all along and I didn’t’ realize it. Later, I found out the manager’s name is Heather. I sat for about 20 minutes. I watched the employees laugh and talk and look in my direction as I filled out the application. I called another waitress over and asked her could I speak with the manager to find out if there was a position and she said she would go get her. While I was sitting, I noticed and overheard a “white” individual walk in and speak to the hostess, asking her for an application. He said, a “Kenny” told him to come in and get an application. And she quickly gave him an application and conversed with him for a few minutes. Meanwhile, I continued to watch the employees converse and walk by my table. The facility was practically empty as there were only three tables with guests, a total of about 7 guests. I noticed the young lady who I had asked to speak with the manager, did not speak with any one and she returned to my table to tell me the manager was not there. Twenty minutes later, I am informed the manager was not there! I did not give them my application as I could clearly see they were not interested, and by the location and the feel of the environment. I was not welcomed there.
