At the Lousy Service Casino...

P1010289

... I'm sorry I can't help you. Or, no, I'm not sorry. Sorry isn't sufficiently lousy. Deal with your own issues and stop being such a wussy.

There used to be a diner here in Nashville that offered "The Worst Service in Town." I always wanted to stop there to check it out, but after a couple of years they went out of business.

The proper phrase is 'stop being such a wuss'.

If it was Deadwood, South Dakota prior to 1980 (when they outlawed prostitution), it might be the Lousy Cervix Casino.

"How can I be of disservice?"

"If there's anything I can do, please hesitate to let me know!"

Apparently not the same John Walter who would later brew in Eau Claire. Just a common (Americanized) name at the time?

Calypso Facto said...

Speaking of brew, did you get a pic of the "world's largest six-pack"?

The proper phrase is 'stop being such a wuss'.

But usage such as, "What a wussy", is acceptable.

That is appealing to masochists only: A casino that steals your money while its employees stiff you.It almost sounds like Mohammed's religion without the booty from conquests.

Not all casinos are gambling casinos. Casinos are places of public recreation. Since the 1880's Detroit's island park, Belle Isle has included the Belle Isle Casino. For half a century, Chicago boasted Math Igler's Casino, an Austrian place known for its singing waiters.

Is the Casino still in business?

Please excuse my butting into the thread,but I'm hoping someone here can provide a little help to me:

I need to find some simple, layman-friendly gun law information.

I'm interested in how Federal Gun law intersects with state law;

I need a place to get reliable information on gun laws by state;

and I need to know some basic things about being a Federally licensed gun dealer and about buying and selling guns both instate and intrastate.

I've looked at the ATF official site but I'm not seeing what I need.

I know there are folks who post here that enjoying hunting and collecting firearms and so forth, so I was wondering can anyone make a suggestion? Sort of a "Gun ownership for Dummies" type thing.

(I've been blogging about a trial in which Fed/State gun law plays an important part, and I want to make sure I've got the facts straight.)

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to LaCrosse!

Hope you have a chance to stop there for a beer - they have a great selection. And the service isn't lousy, although you will get a few long stares from the "regulars". Especially you fancy city slicker types.

I recall a sign inside that bar that reads, "What you drink tonight is brewed tomorrow in St. Louis."

Lynne said...

Thanks, FLS!
That looks really promising.
I had no idea where to start and this should help.

I've always like LaCrosse. Biggest 6 pack in the world in front of the brewery. They make a dark beer there that is not on tap, but at the end of the tour they will give you a bottle.
There used to be a bar on HIghway 54 in a little town of a couple hundred maybe 60 miles west of Wichita with a sign that said Harold's Bar and Grill. Warm beer, poor service. Stopped there once. Beer was a fraction of a degree warmer than if it was frozen. Long since closed, sadly.
