So this past weekend was something of legend, although now looking at it, the greatness that was Labor Day weekend is probably one of those “you had to be there” things for you to understand the awesomeness, but with that said I was still like to tell you in a somewhat condensed, PGish way the awesome weekend that was Labor Day!

The weekend all started off as most weekends do, with two good friends getting off work and trying to meet up for a drink. My good friend Stevie and I have become some what of regulars at a local bar in town called the Market Arms, there we have a great bat tender and friend that we enjoy the company by the name of Jennie, and we were in somewhat of anticipation for another great night at this establishment, but before we got to the door a dilemma hit as Stevie soon realized he hadn’t brought his ID, and there was no way the door man was going to allow us to enter. Stevie and I both puzzled on what to do next realized that not to long ago we became some what memorable at a bar down the street and if by chance that same bar tender was there, and by chance there was no door man we may indeed be able to save a night of drinking . With determination, and one hell of a good parking spot we were able to make it to the bar and see there was no door man. We quickly walked into the bar and to are delight saw the same bar tender as the previous time, but would she remember us? Thoughts were going on in my head on what we would do if she were to card us, where would we go? Would this be the night? That was a thought I was dreading even thinking about, but before we were even able to sit on the stool the bar tender turned around and instantly smiled. With a somewhat happy tone in her voice she welcomed us back to the bar, and was eager to have us sit and have a drink! We completed the mission! It was a great feat for the both of us.

As we sat at the bar we looked at each other and realized we weren’t sure what we wanted to drink. This whole time all we cared about was finding away in, but not what we would consume after we got in, and before you know it the question came, I believe it was asked something like “So, what will you guys be having?” But without  missing a beat Stevie gave a great reply. Stevie said ” I want a masculine drink that isn’t a beer or a shot, but as to be refreshing and delightful.” The bar tender looked at him and smiled, it was almost the same smile the evil queen made in Snow white made when she was brewing her poison. To create this concoction she even had to have the bar back go down to cellar and grab some special drink that wasn’t even in the assortment of alcohols at her current disposal. It was a good few minutes before the bar back made it back, but once we saw him appear we could feel the excitement in our taste buds as it was almost time to indulge on this reward of the night. The Bartender served us to glasses with a purple substance and then twisted lemon into it and said enjoy. Stevie and I look at one another, cheers, smelt, then took a sip of our new found treasure. This drink we had discovered isn’t something you would order when going out with the boys, but if you were just out for a low key night and didn’t want to go to crazy, but wanted something a bit different, this was the drink for you. The only thing left to add this new pleasure into are arsenal of drinks was finding out it’s name, and then we heard it, the Jack Rose! If your not afraid of change and what to try something new I suggest the Jack Rose the next time you are out on the town.

After a decent amount of time at this great establishment Stevie and I had to be off for it was time to get to our next stop. It was Stevie’s sister, Laura’s birthday, and his brother Dexter’s at midnight! They were both at Tulalip Casino, which is the biggest casino in our area, but before we could get there we had to head to Stevie’s other brother, Billy’s house. We stopped off there had a quick beer but nothing more then that before we were off again and on are way to the self proclaiming number one place for fun.

The final hours of the night were spent as they should be, with close friends, and family together celebrating, and gambling are savings away. I can’t think of any huge loses or wins in the end, but more just us together having a great time.

Yes, the first day of this adventurous weekend was something memorable but it was truly nothing compared to what was to come…
