We’re bringing Lei Night back.
You may remember our Wednesday night special from a few years ago. We thought it was a great idea, but it never really got off the ground. Dave decided it was time to try it again and really get the Wednesday staffers to promote the heck out of it. It works like this: everyone who comes into the bar on Wednesday night gets a lei around their neck. Then, you try to convince nine other people to give you their leis- and each person who manages to finagle ten leis gets a prize.
The prize? The coolest shirt ever. And there’s no other way to get this shirt- you can’t buy it, and you can’t even steal it because we gave up keeping merchandise upstairs for people to peruse.
It’s a plain white t-shirt, with The Sandbar logo on the front, and "I got lei’d at" above the logo. Here’s a picture:
We think this promotion will be fun for groups of friends. Gather up a group and make a standing date to come to The Sandbar on Wednesday nights, then take turns each week collecting ten leis. Everybody wins.
And if you don’t have any friends to bring, come alone- this is the perfect icebreaker to give you a reason to talk to strangers in the bar. After all, a stranger is only a friend you haven’t met yet. And you know you want one of those shirts.
Did you know that “lei” is the plural form of “leu” which is a form of currency in Rumania. Actually, I think “lei” is a noun. I don’t think it’s grammatically correct to use the past tense of a noun (i.e. lei’d). On a lighter note… Who HASN’T gotten lei’d at the SB!
PS… See you next Wednesday!
and thank you for the lesson in grammar. i doubt this is the first thing i’ve written that is not grammatically correct.
pants – let it be known…i’m the wednesday mid staffer so i wear the lei’d shirt to help promote…but i have definately not gotten lei’d at the SB!!!
You haven’t gotten lei’d at the SB…. yet.
that sounds like a threat…that’s kind of creepy.
heck I think the last time there was a lei night, there was no fish tank and the comfy chairs were still a source of amusement. It’s a great idea to start up an old tradition. At least for a while.
Here’s a love story for ya Debbi–Matt and I MET on lei night at the SB. :)AÃƒÂ±a
