January 20, 2010—Bar 10

Day Ten—Tuesday, January 20th—The Wharf Bar and Grill

Another day and another donation! The mysterious and sultry Tiki Bar Susie who comments here donated 50 dollars! That’s right, 50 dollars! I’d have been thrilled with five bucks! That is above and beyond generous and will cover a couple night’s boozing expenses. Mucho thanks to you Susie, I need to buy you lots of drinks next time you’re in town!



And speaking of drinks, I found a great bar website while Googling for a bar tonight. The website is called Murphguide.com and here’s a link to it: Murphguide.com. There’s tons of bar information on there website and I’m going to use it for help in picking out my nightly bar. This has nothing to do with anything, but did you realize tons spelled backwards is snot? Well it is and it’s snot my fault! Anyway, I found this Tuesday night special on the Murph site, check it out:

One of the specials tonight at the Wharf is a “Bucket of Rocks,” which they describe as “6 Rolling Rock Nips for 8 dollars.Holy shitballs, does that mean this beer has nipples? That would be the greatest motherfucking invention in the world! I mean the only thing better than beer is nipples, right? The proof is below:

So imagine combining these two wonderful things! Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try, now imagine nipples on beer bottles, I’m gonna fly! To the Wharf bar! Woo hoo! (And cheers, to my friend Parvona, all the way in Arizona! I hope you’re enjoying hummus right now!)

On my walk to the Wharf I passed this place which cracked me up because in my day a "Lid" was what you called an ounce of marijuana. Anyone else out there old enough to remember this? Another thing that cracked me up about this place is that it offers hat embroidering while you wait. Are people in that much of a hurry to get their hat embroidered these days?

And here we are, the Wharf bar.

A decent crowd for a Tuesday night.

And bartender Bobby serves up the Bucket of Nipplized Rolling Rocks.

And here I sadly find out there's no nipples on the beer. They call them nips because they're miniature bottles of beer. So sad!

While they may not have nipples on the beers, there is a massive booze selection at this joint.

Here's some of the regulars from the Wharf: Jarett (a.k.a. Justin Inch—he's a wise guy!), Drew, bartender Bobby and the lovely Dani.

Some of the specials at the Wharf.

This is John who was seated next to me. This guy has had more sports injuries than Evil Knievel! You wouldn't know it from the picture, but his jaw was once busted in three places. Ouch!

The back room at the Wharf.

Here's Laura and Shevon, who were first timers at the bar.

Some of the many draft beers to be had at the Wharf.

Another Wednesday special is $1.00 tacos. I got three and they were deeeelicous!

Bobby and John shoot the shit while I shoot their photo.

Here's Amanda and Eric who confessed they were sort of regualrs at the bar.

Tabasco Sauce!

Some of the specials to be had at the Wharf Bar and Grill.

Uh, oh. The bucket is empty which means...

Bathroom break!

I'm really amazed by the clean toilets I've encountered. What happened to the grungy bathrooms in bars?

there's a bulletin board to remind you of the bar's business as you do your business in the john.

Hey, how'd that get there?

Obligatory bathroom mirror shot! Thanks again to Tiki Bar Susie for the generous donation! Cheers and beers!


The Wharf Bar and Grill bills itself as an unpretentious place and that’s just what it is.
A nice clean place to hang out with friends, hoist a few beers, put some tunes on the jukebox and enjoy the seafaring atmosphere in the joint. Happy hour is from 4 to 7 pm, Monday through Friday with four dollar well drinks (and Absolut drinks) and five bucks for pint frozen drinks. Check out their website (below) for daily specials. There’s also 16 beers on tap and 22 selections of bottled beer for your boozing pleasure.

The kitchen is open till two in the morning (nice for those of you that puff the wacky tobacky in between drinks) and they have a large menu of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, wraps and full course entrees from their grill. One of the favorites are the Wharf dogs which come two to an order with chili and cheese on them. The dollar tacos on Tuesday is a great bargain and a great taco! And you can enjoy them at the outdoor deck which thanks to a retractable roof that is open year-round. And there’s 11 plasma TV’s for you funnelheads and sportsfans out there.

Now if they could only figure out how to get nipples on beer bottles!

I ate a fish taco last night but it wasnt at The Wharf.
Looks like a cool bar. Ilike that the kitchen is open til 2AM since I always have a half a lid on me.

LOL! Eating Ass' joke about always having a lid on him was funny!

What a nice and fun looking place. I could not help but notice that the television behind Laura and Shevon was tuned to TVG....Horse Racing. Very Cool!!

It looks like the fifty is going to great use. Enjoy!!

Very generous donation from Tiki Bar Susie! When I win the Lotto I'll send big bucks. Those tacos look tasty!

Love the new website Marty! What a wonderful idea! I am so impressed with this New York town and the clean bathrooms! Sheesh! The little Rolling Rocks are the cutest thing ever, I need about 6 of those buckets!

I hate Rolling Rock but love buckets, so this presents a sort of conundrum for me. Still, it looks like a great place to tie one on. How's the juke-box?

January 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBiff

I didn't play anything on the jukebox, but what was playing was top 40 and '80s tunes. I was too busy with the Rolling Rocks and the buck tacos!

Nice place even if you have to bring your own nipples!

Horse racing and it's a Jets bar? Sounds like my kind of place.

English tongue Soccer can be described as popular pursuit in Britain which has developed into part from its norm. There are actually various baseball competitions in the land. But other than the rivalry and serious energy for these tournaments will be unifying principle of this sport that is certain to carry it again through versions. www.scorespro.com
