Weekly Natty Boh Tower Contests at Singer's

mr natty boh!This we know: Singer's (formerly Nadds) already has 99 cent beers, all day every day.

Now hear this: Singer's has a weekly Natty Boh Tower Contest.

A Natty Boh Tower is a stack of about 30 cases of full Natty Bohs that forms the shape of a tower. Hence, Natty Boh Tower.

Singer's keeps a running tally of how many Bohs each person drinks from 9:01 p.m. Monday to 8:59 p.m. the following Monday ...

The records are kept on a spreadsheet, and whoever drinks the most Bohs wins a free 12-pack. Not bad, Singer's.

"It's kinda fun in the Natty Boh tradition," owner Ron Singer wrote in an e-mail.

I agree, Ron. I called the bar, and found out that the number to beat is about 30 Bohs a week. Think you're (wo)man enough? Try it and see.

Crazy Lil's in Fed Hill has a Natty Light competition. Don't think they stack the cans or cases in a shape, though. Just keep track of how many people drink each week.

Yabba dabba cirrhosis

I know they changed the name and everything, but they should call them "Naddy" Bohs for nostalgia.

Damn. I'm getting all teary eyed over here. Sniff.

So this is how I will finally get my obit to read, "He died like he lived - drinking himself to death on Natty Boh at Nadd's."

The editor in me insists on pointing out that, technically, you stated above that Whatever-We're-Calling-The-Place is selling beers for ninety-nine one hundredths of a cent, or just under a penny each.

That's what it says: Point-ninety nine one hundredths cent a beer........
