The Most Famous Growler in the World!!

The third trip to the Pony Bar, to fill the growler, was eventful as always. The bar was the most crowded I have seen it so far. It has definitely become a typical NY bar in terms of the service, in that you need to have something to get the attention of the bartender, otherwise you might be waiting for a while. It is that busy. Good attention grabbers are boobs and bills. Show some skin or Andrew Jackson and your chance of getting a bartender improves parabolically.

As I was waiting to get my growler filled with Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold (my second choice was a very good Defiant Little Thumper), I noticed a photographer taking pictures of my growler and the bartender prepping it. As I waited a tall, lanky man was bumping into me on my right. I overheard him say something in my direction: "take him down" or "take him out". I turned and looked at him straight on, he sheepishly responded, ..."yes?". I turned back. People start to notice the photoshoot occurring behind the bar and the bumping guy addresses me : "That's going to be the most famous growler in the world." I nod. The bartender is ready for the hand-off, in which he reiterates : "This is going to be the most famous growler in the world.". This time I respond with, "We'll see."
