Dumb question, but what time is their happy hour? 4-7? 5-7? or just show up when we can?

Wait, was that there a second ago. Geez, I'm blind. Ignore that post.

Polly will bring her menu mask?

I want the job that enables you to start drinking at 3. It's bad enough that our generation missed out on the three martini lunch.

Monday? OK thats a little early in the week for me but I'll be there. What do we do to recognize each other, Polly will be easy the ever present menu is a give away but for the rest of us? Perhaps a sprig of parsley behind the right ear, food stains on our shirt? And will Anon show up?

"but with $3 mojitos, you won't even notice"

Stopped in the other day to try the mojitos and they were god awful, super sweet bar mix it tasted like corn syrup more than a mojito. I could not drink it, attempts to work with the bartender to create a scratch margarita was not particularly successful either. At least he did not charge me for the $3 mojito, I tipped him 30% for effort.

Same thing at Nada two weeks ago, the nadarita is an awful barmix. Their over priced "premium" marg was terrible also, we were able to work with the bartender to finally get a good true Margaret Sames Marg, one part Cointreau, two parts tequila and one part FRESH lime or there abouts. Triple sec has no business in a classic.

Any barkeep worth his bar salt should know how to make the few basic classics well, if a bar want's to create their own "twist" on a classic they should at least offer and know how to make an acceptable original and have the resources on hand.
