[quote comment=”68533″]Re: Post #40, Here, Here. I went to the fundraiser party last Sunday and finally found the meaning of St Patrick’s Day. Living here for so long, I forgot how great it used to be. Everyone was friendly and having a great time, it made me want to stay in town for the parade this year, having blasted out of town every year since about 2000…I grew up in NYC and celebrated with my Irish friends in the Bronx along Fordham Rd with people who knew how to handle their liquor. The yuppies in this town fucking ruin St Patty’s Day. I was walking with a friend last year, and some drunk dick from a building fire escape yelled out something rotten to my friend who happens to be a large woman. I wonder how these idiots act the other 364 days out of the year.[/quote]
Like the assholes they are! 👿

[quote comment=”68176″]I had an idea for bars on parade day… A way to make even more money + frequent customers happy: Owner announces they’re doing 20 (or half their capacity) “tickets” for the parade. You have to buy them at a premium in advance- $40 if the cover is $20, or if there is no cover, then $20 just for the option to show up. They’re good for only the first hour the bar is open.

So basically, someone like me buys a pass to a bar with my friends. Bars open at 10am. I have until 11am to show up with this pass and get in. Between 10 & 11 the bar is operating at 20 less than capacity. However, at 11am, if we haven’t used the passes, the people in line get to fill those spots.

How do they make money? Well, in the first hour per customer, I doubt they’re making more than $20- so that premium just paid for the customer not to drink for that hour. Also, some people won’t show for some reason, so that’s $40 in the owner’s pockets. I really like this idea. And the thing is, I’d totally buy a pass.[/quote]
You are so brilliant. Ever think of writing a book on business managment strategies?? 😆

Maybe the town should add a $1/drink tax on the parade day. It would sure help with the budget gap.
