Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name...
And, they're always glad you came.

That's us, we are friendly, respectful, and enjoy each other's company. The conversational topics are endless.

Brutus and Spike, the Pub Bouncers will be around in case any trouble starts. If/when that happens; prepare to be ousted to the curb immediately, with no warning or discussion. Negativity and comments intended to start an argument will immediately be removed and the poster will be blocked from further inciting a riot. Sorry, but that's just the way it will be.

We are here for Happy - NOT Stress and Aggravation!

Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday - Come join our Mardi Gras Party Happy Hour

We will have Creole Food, King’s Cake, Dixieland Jazz, Beads, and of course, Hurricanes. Buy one Hurricane at regular price and get a second one for half price.

Do you have Creole or Cajun recipes you'd like to share? Can be one (or more) of your own or that of another member that you have tried and like.

One cocktail that simply must be served for any Mardi Gras celebration is the Hurricane.

This classic New Orleans Hurricane recipe is filled with sweet juices and rum. It will make you feel like you’ve been transported straight to Bourbon Street.

I’ve hosted a few Mardi Gras parties over the years and these hurricanes are always the biggest hit with my friends (I think the generous servings of rum might have something to do with that!). It’s both sweet and strong, but an obvious must-have for any Mardi Gras celebration.

3 oz. dark rum
3 oz. light rum
3 oz. passion fruit juice
2 oz. orange juice
.75 oz. lime juice
.75 oz. grenadine
Orange slice, garnish
Maraschino cherry, garnish

In a large mixing pitcher with ice, add all ingredients except orange slices and cherries. Stir until chilled and thoroughly combined.

Serve over crushed ice in hurricane glasses with a long straw; garnish with orange slice and cherry.

Trivia for Monday

What was the first song broadcast from space?
A. "Fly Me to the Moon"
B. "Space Cowboy"
C. "Rocket Man"
D. "Jingle Bells"



Correct Answer is D – "Jingle Bells" was the first song broadcast from space, in a Christmas-themed prank by Gemini 6 astronauts Tom Stafford and Wally Schirra. While in space on December 16, 1965, the astronauts played a prank by telling Mission Control that they spotted a flying object before broadcasting their own rendition of Jingle Bells. The sound of "Jingle Bells" was played on a smuggled harmonica and a handful of small bells. The Smithsonian Institution claims these were the first musical instruments played in space and keeps the instruments on display and a visual image is also posted on their website.

Time to get up and get to work. *Groan* I stayed up much too late last night.

Hope you have a fine day.

How much do you know about the Oscars?

Take this brain candy quiz and find out. I'm afraid I didn't score very well. Guess I don't pay enough attention to these things, don't see enough movies or watch enough award shows. Oh well...
