So, are you ready for HOLIDAY DRINK WEEK? Great! Just remember a few friendly rules:
• Drink responsibly! This goes without saying, but because we love you and don't want you to die, PLEASE be safe and smart with your cocktail consumption—and NEVER drink and drive.
• Be patient! We all need a drink (or 10) right now. But so do our friends, neighbors, and sworn enemies! So if a bar is slammed, or if they run out of those little umbrellas? Be cool—it'll all get sorted soon enough! And if you want to help things go smoothly, pay in cash—it’ll save time, and your server will appreciate it. Speaking of which....
• Tip your bartenders, and order food! Sure, the best part of Holiday Drink Week are those $7 drinks… but each location also has great food, and their talented bartenders will be working hard to keep those holiday cocktails pouring! So relax, grab a bite, and let your bartenders and waitstaff know how much you appreciate ‘em!
Now get ready for the booziest, funnest week of your life, the Mercury's HOLIDAY DRINK WEEK! Coming at ya November 28 - December 4!
