Welcome to Betty’s Blog

Mariners Inn > Promotions > Welcome to Betty’s Blog

Thank you for being interested enough in all things von Rutenberg Ventures (VRV) to check out Betty’s Blog.

As many of you know, Betty was (and still is) the matriarch of the von Rutenberg family.  While she is no longer with us physically, she is present in heaping amounts in our recipes, out team, and in all of our hearts.

The culture she and her husband Bill created lives on today as strong as ever, as the VRV team delivers hospitality with the personal touch that Betty was so known for.

Betty and Bill’s boys Bill, Jack, & Robert are now are steering the ship at VRV along with a dedicated, talented, and fun loving group of managers and team members.  I feel honored, as the writer of this blog, to be the conduit through which we engage you with VRV.

You may have already glanced at our website, checked out our various Facebook pages, or read some of our emails; but I am really glad you dropped anchor here for a moment.  Why?  Because I’ll be able to dive deeper into the who, what, when, where, why, and how regarding our small, unique, locally owned and operated hospitality company based in the best city in the entire world.  More importantly, you’ll be able to engage in a dialog with me on any of the entries in this blog (or anything else on you mind for that matter).

There is a framed poster in the bathroom of my home that lists several of Life’s Little Instructions.  One always jumps out at me – Don’t do anything that wouldn’t make your mom proud.  I’ve always felt that if at the end of the day my mom would be proud of how I lived that day, I’ve had a pretty good day.

As the steward of this blog, I hope to engage you with our company in a personal, sometimes vulnerable, and hopefully always meaningful way.  And of course, make Betty proud.

Jack von Rutenberg
