Just thought I'd let everyone know that my old place of employment (and the reason I graduated with such bad grades) is featured at a great website. Check it out here:<br><br>http://www.playboy.com/on-campus/collegebars/<br><br>Heh... used to bartend there, and the prices were cheaper back then (4 years ago)... Pearl Beer was $.85 for a long neck back then, and pichers were $3.75<br><br>John<br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2

okay... if you want me to hook you up with good airfare, I can't promise anything... I'm not a travel agent...<br><br>sent me an email with:<br><br>dates of travel, start and end, <br><br>destination and departure airports<br><br>full name and phone numbers<br><br>I'll have a travel agent call you with the best deal... if I have time<br><br>thanks all...<br><br>John<br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2

not going out of my way really... Bestfares has some great deals sometimes... I can't wait to take advantage of them... we had a round trip ticket to NYX from Dallas for $68 a few weeks ago... but I didn't take advantage of it...<br><br>Just email your needs, and I'll pass it on... my travel agents will hook anyone up if they can...<br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2

yep. got to drive the M1, and do a lot more with it, like shoot things... nothing like sending 120MM steel bullets down range and watching them destroy your target ;)<br><br><br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2

Oh geez John - You're an AGGIE??<br><br>Lord have mercy. My little brother graduated from the Chicken - or rather A&M and spent the vast majority of his student loans on cheap Texas beer and Tom's BBQ.<br>BTW - If you stand behind the bar and open longnecks does that really make you a bartender? I thought they were the folks who actually mixed drinks. Last time I was at the Chicken the only mixed drinks were when one spilled Shiner into a Pearl. <br><br>Oh -- and come Thanksgiving - Hook 'em! Yes, I bleed burnt Orange. <br><br>

hehe.... I don't think it's the opening a long neck that makes you a bartender...<br><br>I think it's the hefty amount of change you get to take home from cheap aggies that buy $.95 pearl, and tip you a nickel....<br><br>and the fact that I could sing any damn country tune that was released before 1965 by heart if you asked me to....<br><br>that makes me a bartender (a chicken bartender that is)<br><br>heh... and yes, I'm an aggie<br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2
