Top 10 excuses you can't make it to the happy hour

These are some of the excuses we have heard:

1. I have a flat tire.
2. I'm getting a haircut.
3. I have to feed the dog/cat.
4. I'm taking a break from alcohol.
5. I'm getting snow tires put on/taken off.
6. I have exams.
7. I'm training for a competition.
8. I'm still recovering from the previous Thursday happy hour.
9. I didn't receive the e-mail announcement.
10.I forgot it was Thursday.

Manhattan Bar is CLOSED

One of our favorite happy hour venues, the Manhattan Bar, served its last beer, and is now closed due to a lease dispute. Bar owner Manon said she intends to reopen in a different location.

How unfortunate. We had memorable moments at Manhattan, especially during the "ladies drink for free" promotion (it's true!), which ran for a couple of weeks. During this period, we had record-breaking turnouts.

We'll miss you Manon!

Bar joke of the day (13/03/10)

A guy walked into a bar and sat down next to a man with a dog at his feet. "Does your dog bite?" he asked. "No,".
A few minutes later, the dog took a huge hunk out of his leg. "I thought you said your dog didn't bite!" the man said.
"That's not my dog," was the reply...

Bon weekend everyone!

A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for a homework assignment. After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note...

Dear Ms. Davis ,
I want to be very clear on my child's illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This drawing is of me selling a shovel.
