We were excited by the hype and the anticipated new business.
Would it be some well-heeled tourists looking for a Bloody Mary before brunch?
Would it be it some some boaters looking to snag a six pack or two before their day on the water?
What we got was a parrot, a pirate, Bar Tab Larry, Joe Weed and a stroller-to-be named-later on their own ground-breaking, pre-noon bar stroll.
Truth be told, if the camera were to pan around the bar we would see quite a few folks enjoying their Sunday morning, watching the woman’s soccer game, shooting pool, eating popcorn, playing the juke box and generally doing what folks do in the Parrot. And as a footnote the gentleman on the left in my photo was mugging for the camera and not really getting up close and personal with the bar rail.
