Yes, the Pub is in the news! Isn’t it grand!? We’re in the news because allegedly, someone went straight from our just shy of a month old bar on a
tweaked geeked twisted (whatever the high is called when you’re smoking crystal meth) rampage that including slicing his baby’s mother open with a butcher’s knife. Now, according to conflicting reports she has flesh wounds but nothing severely damaging or life threatening and the child is fine. Long story short, he busts in high and wasted after leaving our bar and then causes all this stuff to go down…and somehow she heard that he was at the Pub with another woman. I was eyewitness to this, as was Eiffel, Dean, Momma and Gary Cooper. Oh, and yes this is the guy in the mugshot.
I was on service bar with Momma last Friday night and that’s where Peach and her friends were hanging out, some of me and Momma’s regulars, we were just zooming around and bs-ing with each other. I see Peach talk to this guy (still in the collared shirt he is wearing from his arrest Sunday morning…eww) and I thought they knew each other, so the drunker he got I kept fetching him drinks, beers and shots. He seemed like a funny person, but then he just got plowed sometime after I switched to floating around helping the remaining bartenders after cuts and eventually disappeared. Unbeknown to me he wound up getting cut off and then kicked out. He didn’t seem out of the ordinary, just a “whigger” kinda guy if you will, and he even tipped well.
I went into work the next day at shift change and, LOL, he’s back, in the same clothes (double eww) and he’s already drunk. Again, shift change happens, the crowd starts pouring in for the UFC fight and he eventually disappears. Same story, he got drunk, apparently made out with some disgusting hoochie mama, and got kicked out trying to do her on the pool table.
And now we’re in the newspaper, despite him having been gone from our establishment for over 12 hours,as the place he had “recently left” to travel to the redneck side of town (without killing himself, a feat in itself since he was quite drunk) to draw an 8 inch butcher’s knife on an innocent young woman and child.
Gotta love P.R.
