Summers Lent Calendar - Day 8

On the eighth day of Lent, we're giving up cocktail napkins.

Summers is finally going green so we're going to stop killing trees by giving up cocktail napkins for Lent. Like coasters, cocktail napkins are disease traps and who the hell can be bothered to recycle paper products anyway? Plus, it makes our bartenders and waitstaff do more work and in this harsh economic climate we're not giving any employee more money for more work.

Summers Lent Calendar - Day 7

On the seventh day of Lent, we're giving up coasters.

Customers are not allowed to place their drinks directly on the bar, because God forbid we would have to wipe or clean the bar, but coasters can get pretty grungy and are disease traps and market every company in the world but Summers so we're going to give up coasters for Lent.

Summers Lent Calendar - Day 6

On the sixth day of Lent, we're giving up counting.

We have 60 televisions, or 50 , or 40, or 55, it really depends on who is counting. Counting is tough and it is hard to keep track of the total amounts so we're giving counting for Lent. Sure, we talk about 60 HD televisions in all or our marketing materials but who reads or listens to us, and if anyone has a complaint we will just say we are recalculating.

Summers Lent Calendar - Day 5

On the fifth day of Lent, we're giving up high definition.

We have high definition-capable televisions but high definition service is expensive and our customers don't really watch sports even though we try and brand ourselves as a sports bar (and restaurant) and we don't really care what our customers think in the first place.
