Stupid question time

Posted: May 30, 2011 by aliceaitch in Drunkblogging, Stupid Question Time

Why do bars have mirrors behind the bartender?  And why do bars always play Freebird?  I’m editing waiting for a girl in a Super Bitch hat to show up.

    I am just typing out my ass here, but I would guess that a lot of those mirrors originally had advertisements for breweries painted on their borders.

    As for “Free Bird,” unlike the traditional songwriting process, it was engineered in a laboratory to appeal to drunks. You could look it up.

  2. Sean M. says:

    Oh, also just conjecture here, but the mirror may have been a way for old-timey drunks to straighten up their ties, hats, and moustaches on the way home before indoor plumbing was widely available.

    You are lying about the Super Bitch hat. Lying to make me giggle uncontrollably.

      I wasn’t actively waiting, I just would have been unsurprised if one had shown up.

      If it wouldn’t have been tacky, I would have taken a picture of the gal at the funeral.

    I did a little swing behind the bar. Makes the room bigger for the drunks sitting there pre- and post-TV and you can see customers when you’re facing the register.
