I wish I could say I had a lot to recap this past weekend, but in reality,  after a great Cinco de Mayo on Thursday, the rest of the weekend was pretty sedate.  We had a lot of "eclectic personalities" gracing us with their presence on Friday and Saturday, but aside from a few fleeting moments what made you say "Did that just happen?",  it was again, a blah weekend overall.

Speaking of "eclectic personalities", we had a group come in late night Friday and while I'm not certain where they came from, but they definitely weren't from the neighborhood.  One of the members of the group was a short fella, dressed in cowboy boots, booty shorts, a plaid cowboy shirt and had hair that was parted down the middle, half dyed in jet black and the other half dyed in bleached blonde white.  To say he was outgoing would be an understatement.  

Well, as it turns out, he was a bartender (and a generous tipper) back wherever he came from so he ended up hitting it off with my bartenders.  And all the while, he and his little group were having a great time.  So at one point, he goes to the bathroom and when he returned, he goes over to one of the bartenders, leans over to her and drops this gem of a quote on her:

"This is probably going to be one your top-five quotes you'll hear all night, but your men's room smells like semen".

The look on my bartender's face was just as priceless as the quote itself, and I, of course, busted out laughing.  You can't make this stuff up.

The Kentucky Derby Viewing Party was a success as always, thanks to a wide open race with no clear-cut favorite.  THE RUNNING MAN did a great job in getting the patrons interested in the race (as he always does), and by post time, everyone in the bar were totally into the race.  One of our female regulars, LADY LUCK (nicknamed that because she seems to always win our pools) won our Derby pool and typical of her, didn't realize that she'd won.  She was busy stuffing French Fries from Bareburger in her mouth when her boyfriend and THE RUNNING MAN informed her that she'd won.  Figures.

We also got a visit from OPIE CUNNINGHAM, who for some strange reason, had his face painted like Tigger from Winnie the Poo. He was at a christening and the little girl decided that he needed an upgrade.  So he got one I guess.  Funny thing is, it actually IS an improvement.  Bless his heart.

The rest of the weekend was like I said before, pretty sedate.  Thankfully we had some great weather over the weekend and that should continue up until Thursday, so I expect to see an uptick in foot traffic this week.

the Playoffs just got a bit interesting as we will be crowning new champions in both the NBA and NHL, now that the L.A. Lakers were ceremoniously BOUNCED from their perch as two-time champions by Dallas on Mother's Day.  The Eastern Conference of the NBA is still wide open as Boston is hanging in there vs Miami (down 2-1) and Atlanta finding themselves deadlocked with Chicago in their series, 2-2.

In the NHL, the Eastern Conference finals is all set with Boston facing off against Tampa Bay.  The Western Conference is still in play with Vancouver going for the knockout tonight against Nashville, and San Jose once again trying to put the final nail in the coffin of Detroit tomorrow night (both teams leading their series 3-2).  The next couple of nights should be intense!

TONIGHT: GAMES n SUDS Night, featuring $1 Bud/Bud Light mugs or $2 mugs, all other DOMESTIC draft mugs, and $5 Sangria by the Glass (red or white)!  BOSTON CELTICS vs MIAMI HEAT (w/audio) 7pm.  VANCOUVER CANUCKS vs NASHVILLE PREDS (8pm, w/audio after Celtics/Heat game).  MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES vs OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (9:30pm)

That's all I got for ya.
