Welcome to Covert Cape May! My name is Madison Musinski and I have created this blog because I want to provide some non-traditional insight into an uber traditional town.
As many know, Cape May is a resort town. It’s a resort town that is embedded in and also indebted to the service industry and the workers that make that industry thrive. There are restaurants, retail stores, hotels, cafes, spas, and more – all of which have their roots in serving the millions of tourists that visit each season. However, what many people don’t think about as they’re distracted with the joy of the beach or the deliciousness of the scallops on their plate are the people who are facilitating every breathtaking moment of their experience.
So, through this blog, my goal is to explore what it’s like to be the barista during the daily coffee rush or to be the manager of a restaurant low on employees. All types of service-based jobs from massage therapist to event organizer will be focused on. Events like Oktoberfest and Small Business Saturday will also be detailed along the way.
Overall, I just hope to take you (the reader) through the highs and lows of working in the local businesses of Cape May, both in-season and off-season. So, whether you’re a local or a long-distance local, I hope that as you follow along, you’re able to attain a better understanding of all the behind-the-scenes action that makes Cape May the beautiful town that it is.
Lastly, I want to extend to you a thank you for reading! Please stay tuned, a new post will be up soon. Also, if you want to keep up-to-date with this blog on social media, just click this link: https://twitter.com/CapeCovert.
