Tequilas, margaritas and a burrito truck - oh my!

a frothy topped margarita awaits you tonight at bad decisionsWhat are youuuuu doing tonight? Hmmmmm?

It's Cinco de Mayo, you know.

Let me tell you something -- let me share a secret with you, my friends: There is a tequila tasting, with all kinds of wicked South of the Border spirits, as well as margaritas galore, at Bad Decisions

Do you know what that means? It means your world is about to be rocked like a sailboat in a thunderstorm. YEE-HAW!

And when all that tequila is rolling around your belly, you're going to want some NOM NOM NOMs. Don't worry -- they've gotcha covered. There's gonna be a burrito truck parked riiight outside the bar, serving up hot Mexican grub. 

Convinced yet? Be there.

Can't wait! #TequilaTweetup!!!!

What time is this starting?

Whenever you want it to, daddio.

Since Bad Decisions opens at 5 p.m., I'm guessing it starts around then.

Straight from work to Bad Decisions it is!

Sailboat in a thunderstorm.....HYSTERICAL.
Starting at 6PM!

It's gonna be dangerous and awesome at the same time.

Cinco de Mayo: because St. Patty's Day and 4/20 aren't enough to satisfy bored white people's need to celebrate events they don't really care about or understand.

We're not bored, we just like reasons to legitimize our drinking habits.

What you call "Cinco de Mayo", I call "Wednesday".

And in searching for those legitimizing events, you settled on Mexico's unlikely victory over French forces in the Battle of Puebla?

white people

Excuse me, am I the only one offended by the "white people" reference? W. T. F.

Burrito truck? nuf said

Thanks for the shout out BTW, Sam.

I met a tall beautiful red haired woman at the Tequila Tweetoff who was wearing a name tag that said "Owl Meat Gravy". Interesting. I thought, well, maybe that's OMG - she does like bourbon and making fun of people.

But then I saw her leave with a man wearing a cape and a mask. Or maybe the five tequilas I "tasted" caused this hallucination. Anyway, love Bad Decision; I made a couple of them last night.

Ha! I WISH I was tall beautiful ginger babe. Sadly, I am merely an acerbic man with the power to convince beautiful redheads to impersonate me.

Foiled again by the Meekrat. BWAHAHA. A great time had by all.. well except for the lack of tonic water. I'm sure Baltimocker will have something to say about that.

No TONIC WATER? what? That's like running out of limes, for goodness sake's.

I gave Bad Decisions a third try during the Tweetoff. A few friends and I stopped by, and left (drinks not even finished) within 20 minutes. The experience was excruciating. My first two experiences at BD were equally as disappointing.

Overall, the bar is cluttered, cramped, and usually leaves me feeling dirty. On Wednesday, I tried one of the drink specials, believe it was called the "Amie Special" - it was, for lack of better words, disgusting. The drink was the color of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle slime, and well, tasted as bad as it looked. The drink was so thick, it stuck to the straw. I can honestly say I've never tasted a drink quite like it. Wish I had known. I would have saved the $6.

Some advice for the bar: now that you're attracting a crowd, clean up the place. Ya know, when your having company over, you typically try to spruce it up. Also, work on the decor? I usually don't like to feel as if I'm sitting in the neighbor's dark, wet basement. If that's our style, my bad, I guess not every place can suite everyone, right?

Third time wasn't a charm for me at Bad Decisions. I guess the name fits.

Baltimocker, were you the dude in the sombrero and the Guns N Roses t-shirt?

Tonic water? Not essential for a Cinco de Mayo party. Maybe for a St. Swithins Day bash

That's when the scurvy sets in...

I don't think Owl Meatboy really exits. I think Sammy made him up. Ever notice they are never in the same place at the same time? Okay, now I'm not sure Samways Sammy exists.

Hey Sammy, what ever happened to the next Midnight Sun event? I think you should compel Batman, I mean Owl Man to show his face or you take away his press pass and fedora. I think he;s your alter ego. The Dark Knight of your sole. Jesus, another box of Franzia por favor!!!!!! oops

OMG really does exist, unlike Santa. I'm unsure about the existence of Sammy, though.
Nope, i wasn't the guy in the GnR shirt.
Tonic water is an essential, and i stand by the sentiment. I want my G&T (tantrums like small child)

Baltimocker, dude, you needs to chill. Who drinks G&Ts at at tequila happy hour? Were you the dude that asked me to sign a petition to save the white tigers? I think you were wearing a purple track suit and a t-shirt that said "Irony Sucks" And you were really into Mentos.
