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!

On the 7th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me...

I realize it has been a few days since I have updated this but trust me when I say the past few days have been nuts! Last week alone we had 2 large Christmas parties at the bar and then sometimes life just gets in the way.

Side note: Just because your office is paying for a Christmas party it does not mean they tip the bar staff. I served a guy this past week who came up repeatedly for draft beers, his change was .45 cents. Guess what my tip was every time big spender came to the bar...
