So we’re more than halfway through this NaBloPoMo thing I signed up for last month and hopefully all five of you have enjoyed reading something new each and every day.  If I make it to the end of the month I might win a prize! Yippee!

The Sandbar is a member of the Beer Lover’s Group on the NaBloPoMo site. {Yes, I know I don’t drink beer, in fact I despise beer, but I really wanted to join a group and that was the only group that I could find that the Sandbar sort of fit into, because this isn’t a mommy blog or a knitting blog and I thought perhaps I could find some new beers for those of you who do like beer}.

Jill from the beer group tagged me with this meme. I’ve never done this before, at least on the blog, so I thought it might be fun to play.

The Rules:

  • Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  • Share 7 random and/or wierd things about yourself.
  • Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
  • Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Seems simple enough. 

  1. The Sandbar is haunted by a real ghost. The story will be told in an upcoming post that I’ve been too lazy to write thus far.
  2. The Sandbar has keg root beer on tap.  Yes, root beer.  Pity the poor fool beer sales rep who lost a tap to root beer.
  3. Our front windows are rigged to open on a garage door opener.
  4. We have a beach upstairs complete with a beach-scene mural and actual sand.
  5. The legal capacity of The Sandbar is 49 people.  We have never, and I repeat never, had more than 49 people in the bar at one time.
  6. The Pitch awarded us "Best Bizarre Bar Show" for our indoor hurricane attraction. They probably made up the category so they could give us a prize.  We also won "Best Drink Trinket" this year.
  7. Peter Mayer, Jimmy Buffett’s guitarist, has played a couple of live concerts in The Sandbar.  See #5 to understand just how cool this was.

There you have it.  I can hear some of you already (Pants, Pat, "Anonymous")- "Those aren’t random or wierd facts! Everybody knows that stuff!"

To which I say, yes, our regulars know this stuff as do the five of you who read this blog.  But in the hopes that someone new might stumble upon this blog, I bet they don’t know those seven random facts.

I don’t have time right now to find seven other random blogs to tag, {Fringes, you want to play?} so I’m going to change the rules a little bit.  You, dear readers, can join in the fun even if you don’t have your own blog.  Leave a comment and either tell us seven random things about yourself, or you can add seven more random facts about The Sandbar.
