    Larry's on the Lake

    Just an interesting story.....stopped in there during the Harbor Hop, went to the inside bar ordered 3 beers and a Captain & diet coke.

    Take the drinks back outside and my wife says this isn't a Captain and Coke, we taste it, I said no its a whiskey and coke.

    She takes it back tells the bartender, and she says.....we don't have any Captain at this bar so I gave you a Jack and Coke????? She swaps it our for a Vodka & something.

    Why wouldn't you just tell me the first time that you are out of Captain at that bar instead of giving me something else.

    Just kind of a silly frustration that ruined that visit!

    They were short staffed and short on liquor upstairs so your not the only one who had a bad experience. Saw several people leave who couldn't get anyone to take their food order. I guess it's to be expected this time of year, although the other bars were doing just fine.

    Bartender probably doesn't drink liquor and doesn't know the difference in rum and whiskey. Hey... same color so it's probably similar.

    I'll never understand it. Pay $1.5-2 million for lake front bar and run it 5 months a year and not have staff for most of the 5 months. The real kicker is most of these bars BUY $$$ advertising to attract customers that they can't F*#king serve anyway. It can only mean one thing, there is a LOT of money in this old world and intelligence isn't a prerequisite.
