The Corner of the Bar Gang

>Exactly what is The Corner of The Bar Gang?

    The original Corner of The Bar Gang was at the legendary, little Dallas club in San Antonio around '81 - '90.

    They were a group of about 25 guys. At any one time, there would be at least 1 of them sitting at the corner of the bar, drinking. From open to close, there was always one of them sitting on those stools. Rain, snow, shit or shine! Usually a group of three to five. Damn, we make a lot of money off those guys over the years. They paid our rents, bought our cars, paid for our girlfriends, everything.

    But, we had to put up with a lot shit from them too. They got away with stuff I have thrown people in jail for doing when I managed places. And they would always dog the crap out of the new bartenders! Way too funny! They would dog 'em until the new guy nearly cried.

    On his first day, during Happy Hour, Sid, my roommate and the fastest bartender I ever saw or worked with, was getting the treatment. He came up to me and asked, "What the fuck's with them guys?" I told him, "Just go over there and tell them to Fuck Off and they'll leave you alone." Sid went straight over to the corner and the next time they said anything to him, Sid unloaded! You've never heard such loud laughing in a bar ever! They drowned out the sound system. They were laughing so hard, they were crying! Hey, and I was laughing and crying with them. Needless to say, Sid became their number one bartender.

How do I get into Madfish Willie's Corner of The Bar Gang?

    I don't know for sure, ask Harvey and Blackfive - they're in charge of it. But, I'm pretty sure it involves heavy drinking and lots of laughing.

What are the benefits of being a member of Madfish Willie's Corner of The Bar Gang?

    A couple of drinks every time you drop by, free pretzels all night, and cookies while they last.

    Remember: There is no sex in "The Champagne Room". [nudge]*[nudge]*[wink]*[wink]
