Best story from behind the wood | One of my favorite times was having a now good friend walk into the bar and sit down. He asked me to make him whatever I felt like with bourbon, I immediately scrambled and made him at the time my favorite drink from the Anvil in Texas. The Monk’s Revenge, I put the drink infront of him and explained where it was from. He was so happy being from that area and the Anvil being his favorite bar.
