In your experience, what is the most common reason to have a drink? Aside from being awake? Um…Ole Miss lost, or won I guess?

Early alcohol experience: Sneaking Coors Light from the fridge.
Most famous customer you’ve ever served: Toss up between Keith Sanders or Trent Lott…definitely Keith Sanders
Who would you most like to have a drink with; where and what would you imbibe? Grumpy cat, on a kitchen counter, with a water bowl of white Russian.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen in your bar lately? Getting to explain to a 21-year-old what Kansas City is. Seriously.
