I’ll get him a good spanking by 6 foot tall gorilla wearing a tutu! This is our first 4th without The Fat Man and he did love the 4th of July. Come out and make him proud. Saturday, The Shag City Grill will open at 1pm and we will have Happy Hour at 4pm, just like we do every day. Get yourselves lubed up for the fireworks then come back and participate or watch the Mixed Doubles Contest, a tribute contest to Our Beloved Fat Man! If you don’t care about watching or participating you can go to the back room and harass Mama Brenda and dance like Nobody’s Watching! There is NO COVER CHARGE and NO ENTRY FEE for the Contest. It’s gonna be a good one. Brother Jerry and Jammin Jimmy and who knows who else will be in the house laying down some music. It’s the 4th of July, you are supposed to celebrate our FREEDOM, while we still have some left! I bet Harold will gather up George, Thomas and the boys and say “Grab a Miller Lite and come over here. I want you to see how my people celebrate our Independence. If not for you boys, they wouldn’t have ever been able to do the “Shag”! On Sunday, we will open at 4pm for Happy Hour and Terry will have a surprise for you when she gets in! Come see what it is! I guess it’s time to go make some doughnuts and sprinkle them with glitter! May you always have shells in your pockets and sand in your shoes! LOVE YOU, MEAN IT!
