Is the Sunday brunch there any good? Would love to try if it is and can bring my baby now!

 

It used to be pretty good.

Time to drag my restaurant concept out?

 

That's why I have a restaurant concept called "On the Clock" where prices are adjusted every hour. It's a complex algorithm that decides the menu price for each item, changing up or down each hour depending on demand for that item, and general sales volume history for that hour. A big computer screen shows the current prices, but better get your order in before the top of the hour. The price is changing! "You're on the clock!"

 

I believe they call this kind of restaurant, "an airline".

The Sticky Wicket now allows kids.

 

The Red Lion made an application, but it was not accepted, pending further review.  Right now they just have one license for their two LP areas, so they have to find a way to work that out, so kids can't go the the stripper part.

If it's your night to babysit and your idea of babysitting is the peeler bar then maybe babysitting isn't the right gig for you.

Took my 18.9-year-old to the Penny Farthing this weekend.  He was allowed to sit in the rear of the pub or on the patio but not in the bar area or upstairs.

 

Okeydokey.

 

Incidentally, food good, portions modest.  I've been served so many too-huge plates that at first, my dinner looked stingy.  But then I ate it and realized it was just right.

Minors allows in 6 mile now too, that's nice, maybe my 31 year old wife will stop getting carded there.

 

But boy oh boy has 6 mile changed since I was in there last time.  Tiny $16 burgers.  Sorry not 6 mile, it's the "Riverside Kitchen and Apiary at 6 Mile House".  Pouring the pretentiousness on pretty thick, but I guess you have to to sell basic pub food for $16+

Is there anything that satisfies you lately? Where's the Baro we knew and loved from years past?

3-6pm Mon/Tu/We Sticky Wicket has $3 sleeves of select beers, and they have a daily appy special.

The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange is a two-story multi-tap bar and grill located in the beautifully restored Globe Building in downtown Kalamazoo. Offering 28 rotating draught beers from around the world, the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange bases pricing of these draught beers on real-time sales, like the stock market, resulting in an ever-evolving happy hour. Occasional “market crashes” will occur daily, dropping beer prices to their all-time low. The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange also offers a menu of interestingly prepared classic pub fare. Classic dishes will be made new again from the Bar Plates to the Main Fare and the open kitchen design will allow you to see just how “hand-made” the food really is.

Ah but isn't a sleeve 12 oz.? So it's the same price per ounce as a $5 20oz. pint!
Just order 2...

There are different sizes for sleeves.  You have to charge a minimum of $0.25/oz. so the Sticky ones are likely 12oz. or less.

I guess my query was: can you attract customers by having a happy hour with a full price beer with a free or 1 cent appy?

The trouble with the 1 cent appy is that you are losing money, any way you slice it.  And you can't get anyone to eat 72 wings, even if they were slightly above cost.  At 25c per ounce, depending on the beer, you are still at 40-80% mark-up over cost.  You might get 5 or 6 of those into one person.

up until lately, a sleeve was always 16oz, then places started cheating customers and using 14oz ones. they look the same only have a thicker base.

a 12oz sleeve??????

thats a whole new level.
