Thoughts, stories, ideas, recipes, cheers, and more... What else did you think you would get for a $1 tip?

For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Manicures and Martinis Party

I realize this one is very female focused but another great way to get women into the bar early. We ran this party a few weeks ago and it did amazing! We hired an outside manicurist (Is that even a real title?) and Charged each lady $10. The entry fee got them a manicure and two $2 coupons to go toward any martini of their choice. I am sure if we reached out to the local businesses we could have put together simple gift bags with goodies for the first 50 or so ladies through the door. Maybe even linked it in with Breast Cancer awareness and made a nice donation. We started the event at 7pm and then at 9pm we let the guys in the door. The place was packed!

I asked for some different types of melon to make drinks and the only thing I got was cantaloupes. So there are a couple of drinks featuring cantaloupe. Here are a few of the specials I had for the night...
