This past Wednesday was our usual dead night. It's the middle of the week and we may get a few people in and out, but they usually just stop for a quick beer and they're gone. I mean, we're talkin' DEAD quiet. Just me, the bartender and 2 guys playing pool in the back room.

About 7 :00 a group of women came in and you could tell by looking it was a bachelorette party. Everyone is all dressed up, the bride to be was wearing a tiara and they were on a 'Grand Tour" of the bars. They were happy drunk, not hammered and drank just enough to stay that way. They even had a sober driver. They were boisterous but not rowdy, just playing the jukebox, dancing, singing and just having some fun.
...and these ladies were heavy tippers. $ 8 for a couple of drinks ? "Here's a $20 keep the change" and that was on every order. At the end of the night, we made $120 in tips just from them.

The 2 guys playing pool are regulars and I know them fairly well, so when they decided they were going to hit on the drunk chicks, they went over to their table, trying to schmooze their way into joining the party, I called across the bar and in a friendly voice said 'Hey guys ' and when they turned around, subtly shook my head "no". They came over and said what the hell man, it's a bunch of drunk chicks we might get lucky. I said "it's a bachelorette party, you're not gettin' anywhere with any of them". So, they went back to playing pool, but apparently some of the ladies noticed, because one came to the bar, told me "Thank you" and went back to the table.

I got off at 9:00 and these ladies had been drinking Margaritas most of the night, so about 8:45, I made another pitcher, filled fresh glasses and made myself a 'shot" [ ice tea in a shot glass because we're not allowed to drink on the clock and it looked like a shot of whiskey so...] took the tray to the table and told the ladies these are on the house. I raised my glass to the bride to be and said 'May you have a long and happy life. May your blessings be many and your troubles be few '.
End of story, right? Nope.

Next day this HUGE guy walks in. 6' 5' 250 and nothing but muscle. Walks up to the bar, looks at me and says 'Are you David? " I say yes. He reaches across the bar, shakes my hand and says ' Thanks for taking care of the ladies last night" lays a $100 bill on the bar and walks out.

Pretty good Thursday, huh ?

I like your style of writing. A picture of something that happened on a slow night in the middle of the week was skillfully painted by a bartender/writer that made the story interesting and touching. Thanks for sharing.

A lot better than telling you not to eat yellow snow, thats for sure.

Those guys should thank you as well. You may have saved them a life time of grieve and possible jail time.

There is no getting lucky with a "drunk chick". That is by law called "rape" and I have seen a many young, stupid, young men get caught up in that trap.

The law does not even require the person to be drunk, just under the influence, and that can be a wide meter. The mere fact that they admitted they were hitting up on the women because they hoped they would be inebriated enough to have sex with them, because they knew they would not likely have sex with them, if they had not been drinking.

The law says that is rape.

You did everyone a good service. My job would be so much easier if all bar keeps were as forward thing as you. Thanks.

Never going to happen in the first place. I take out an average of 4 bachelorette parties a week. Have been for 6 years. There is no prying a girl away from those groups. If you do, you wouldn’t want to be with that girl anyways.

At worst, the girls would have called their men. And the two pool players would have gotten the snot kicked out of them.

It is always good to hear that some are paying attention and keeping folk safe.

I really would love to be not needed and out of a job. Unfortunately, we still have a long way to go as a society when it comes to stopping sexual assault.

It is a problem that is ageless and has victims of all ages, and sexes.
