From Pictures

Repeal Day is here.  Saturday.  The next biggest drinking holiday ever.   The day we celebrate our innate right to get completely wasted as protected by the constitution of the United States of America.” Scott preaches.

Where are we going to go? Out? Stay in? Make moonshine in the tub?” Sara asks.

No moonshine in the girls’ tub, thanks.”  Tabitha says.

You could use ours.” Scott says.

I don’t trust ever getting your tub clean.  I’m afraid I’ll catch swine flu just looking at it.” Ann says.

Oh, it’s not that bad.  Besides, the alcohol will kill the germs.”  Frank says.

We’ll just go out.  Beer place? The Ginger Man?” Sara suggests.

What about one of those speakeasy places?  Really get into the theme of the day.  Milk and Honey, or that Crif Dogs place..PDT.”  Billy suggests.

I don’t know if I feel like drinking high quality martinis.  They’re too strong for me.” Ann complains.

And too expensive.  Way too expensive.”  Tabitha adds.

Do we want to just stick to local then, go to Catalina’s?” Frank asks.

Boo! No Catalina’s.  Gotta do something special.” Scott insists.

There’s this other bar that I’ve heard of, that’s supposed to be good with craft beers, and regular alcohol as well.  Rattle N Hum. It’s in midtown.”  Sara suggests.

Arr! Be it a pirate bar?” Billy asks.

Ahoy Matey!  Me will bring me eyepatch!” Scott says.

I don’t think it’s a pirate bar..I don’t know what it’s named for though, so maybe.  I’ve never been there.  But I’m not associating with you if you’re wearing an eye patch and talking like a pirate.”  Sara says.

Party pooper.” Billy says.

Girls don’t really go for the pirate thing anyway.  You’re better off.”  Ann says.

She’s got a point there.”  Scott agrees.

So, we’re agreed?  Rattle N Hum Saturday night for Repeal Day?  Good.  I’ve got to go now, I’m working tonight.”  Ann says, going to her room to get ready.

Now that we’ve settled that, lets watch the Nets try to set records for suckiness.” Frank says, turning on the tv.

Subject: 75th Anniversary of Repeal Day

So I get out three hours early on Friday. It’s our holiday party instead of a party.”

“Err…what was that?”

Instead of a party, they’re just letting us go three hours early.”

You could get started drinking early for Repeal Day.”

Maybe. It’s the 75th anniversary this year right?”

I believe so. It really is a great holiday, you’ve got American History, drinking..it appeals to everyone!”

Well, everyone except prohibitionists.”

Those people don’t exist anymore. Do they? DO THEY?!”

Sure. There are still plenty of dry counties out there. The place where they make Jack Daniels

for one. Plenty of people still seem to think alcohol is a bad thing and a sin or something.”

Silly (other) Americans!”

I think I’ll hit McSorley’s..despite it not being historically friendly towards women.”

Straight from the website, ‘Established in 1854 – McSorley’s can boast of being New York City’s oldest continuously operated saloon.’ It survived prohibition, and I think that’s deserves a couple of half-pints of dark in it’s honor. I’ll meet you there after work.”

Sweet!”

I have to agree, this is the best drinking holiday of them all. There’s too much green on St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s too Irish, not American. The night before Thanksgiving is nice, but no

one wants to be hungover and have to cook a turkey. New Years Eve is a great day too though.”

I’d say New Years is more of a family holiday, a celebration of new beginnings, new chances, and the Twilight Zone.”

Greatest drinking holiday or not, I’m going to make an effort on Friday.”

Shouldn’t be too hard at a great place like that. Hmm..do I want light first, or dark?”

We’ll get both and split them.”

Smart.”

Repeal Day Note

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann

Subject: Repeal Day Note

Hey everyone. I’m working tonight and won’t be home, but I wanted to remind you that Wednesday is Repeal Day. I figured the simplest place to drink would be Catalina’s, and I’m not working that night so it does work out. I’ll actually be able to celebrate with all of you, and I don’t think enough people have caught onto the holiday yet that I’d be missing any big tips or anything. It really is the ultimate drinking holiday though, no strings attached, just the celebration of alcohol. Not that the six of us really need any excuses to party or celebrate alcohol. If you’re looking for a prohibition era cocktail to order Wednesday, you can check out Jeffrey Morgenthaler’s Mixologist Blog, but I think most of them are a little more complicated than Zachary (Catalina’s bartender) is used to handling. He’s not a bad bartender, but he’s certainly not in Jeffrey’s league. It’s a shame he lives in Oregon, although he says he’s going to be in New York for the holiday. Oh dear, I’m rambling again. I just wanted to remind you all that we should celebrate, and we should do it at Catalina’s on Wednesday. Talk to you later.

P.S. I’m sticking this on the television because I know you guys are going to watch the Monday Night Football game and this way you won’t miss it.
