Best story from behind the wood | When I was younger I used to bartend at a nightclub in Hess Village. One night I was sick with the flu but there was no one else to work the shift. The whole evening was filled with shouting, dancing, even a couple of excited individuals had sex on the bar while I hosed them down with the pop gun. To cap it all off, it was the highest sales that bar had ever seen!
