    This one took the cake, it's my bar tab, the PYT bartender had no idea what my name was. So since I am 6'7" at 250 or so. I get this one. :p

    15 bucks for 4 Mich Ultras? I think they should have called you Robbed.

    Rather OT and completely irrelevant, but I got completely sloshed at the Green Iguana many moons ago. Seeing that receipt brings back some memories. :)

    Tat2dHeart Only two strings away from an attitude problem.

    LOL. It's totally true though, and Giant Band Guy is so much nicer than so many other things they could have been calling you.

    How in hell does one become 7 feet tall drinking Ultras?! :D
     
  10. I get told that I'm 'the sh!t' alot, but I don't think I can count that as a name hehe (I'm not counting it, anyways).

    No recent names, but when I was still in high school playing at the local open jams I was referred to as 'The 17-year old Man-Child".
     
  11. 'babe' and 'hun'. Don't like being called either.
     
  12. I'm 6"6 350 and I get tiny, football plyer, bass man, boss and big mexican.
    I've yet to play th green iguana. Maybe sometime soon

    Wasnt there just a blow up about an employee at a Papa Johns putting something like "lady chinky eyes" on the receipt for a customer?

    Pretty sure that the Green Iguana, is one of the top gigs in our area. We get our choice of half priced food or half priced bar tab. Since my sig. other is our singer we ate, $11 total for the two of us.

    This location packs on Saturday nights, best gig we have by far.

    $3.00 to $3.50 is the going rate for bottled beer around here so that doesn't seem out of line at all. Unless you were commenting on the choice of beer as bottled water shouldn't cost $3.50. :) However many of our gigs will comp us one or two drinks per person per set which is nice. One even comps us on the food!
