In Mr. Whaley’s view, the bar can be a suitable place for families to gather, especially when the beloved Green Bay Packers are on the television. “On game days, a buddy of mine will come to the bar with his 2-year-old, his 8-year-old and his 10-year-old,” Mr. Whaley said. “He might get a little drunk. But his wife just has a few cocktails. It’s no big deal. Everybody has a good time.”Now, I don't want to sound like a bad parent, but.... this is my family! I cringe a little bit because I guess, yeah, technically, a few cocktails might be over the line, but not when you are professional drinkers like we are up here. Honest to Pete, it's what keeps us warm all winter! And if you had my three boys, well, let's just say it might be difficult for you to keep a handle of Beam around the house for long, too. ;-)
Ok, ok,... I exaggerated a little bit a minute ago. Our family has never been able to stay in a restaurant long enough for any adult (or child-- boy, am I glad to be in possession of this nugget of new-found knowledge!) to be over-served. I'd love to have kids that we could stay in a confined public space for that long with, but with our three hellions it would never happen.
I'm off for my morning Mimosa.... Have a lovely day!
