6/25/09 Oscar’s Tavern is One Year Old!


Welcome to Oscar’s Tavern!

  Today is our Anniversary!  cheerssmiley

We have been open for a full year now!  Whoo-hoo!  We have served you all kinds of shi   stuff!  We’re all here today for the party! Charlene, Willy, Leo, Vinny, Lisa, Sally and Kim. From what started out as a simple blog for Charlene, Willy and I about the goings on here at the Tavern, has become a platform from which we have made and met many new friends here and in blogland.  We owe a lot to my good friend Jen, who introduced me to blogging. She set up the Oscar’s Tavern blog for me.  We have grown and learned all the new gadgets we use here. Somewhat limited, but hey, we’re busy pouring you drinks and serving you things like Cuban sandwiches or BLT’s. We actually keep track of what YOU order and like. We have grown. We even have another blog.

drinking_smiliesWe talked about a lot of silly stuff, important stuff, and stuff just for the hell of it. We talk about our customers, bloggers and what happens behind the scenes here at this fine establishment. We love to point out stupid stuff.

We’ve had 3 guest posts, posts written on planes, written at other bars, written while drunk, written in the Caribbean, written… there too.

Let’s see which customers are here today….

My PhotoA case of Mich Ultra for The Girl.  But she’ll want Willy to make her a Rocky Mountain mofo!  She guest posted for us recently. It was very…different, but great!  She’s welcome to guest post anytime! I’ll bet that was her Shamrock! She is awesome!


A seat is put aside for Terri Terri, one of our best customers!  She only drinks a little –  except when she bowls with her buddy. We have some cold Ultra’s for you too!  She gave the Tavern props by Highlighting us in her “Get Blogged By Terri” Series.  Got us a lot more readers!  Thanks Terri!  We Luv ya!  Those your running shoes under the bar?

Hoo Boy! Here she is… Meleah !  Been with us from the start! Come on over and sit down my dear!  Willy, get this fine woman a drink!  I owe this woman a lunch!  We actually live near each other!

Mrs. 4444 may pop by so we will have a diet coke. If she gets a little wild, we mixed up a strawberry margarita with a looooooong thin straw.  She may dance in a hula skirt for us.   As Rodney says..”Call me sometime when you got no class”. 


Hopefully Mike from Unraveling Life’s Mysteries will stop by for a snifter of brandy. We’ll let him smoke his cigar today too!


Suprizedmom is here, she wants a cold Miller Lite – Says its too hot where she is! She’s new to the tavern![warstories.jpg]

Maybe we can have Heather from OSBP bring us one of her Tasty Tuesday treats!  We have featured some of her dishes here at the Tavern! She’s been a friend of the tavern for a long time too! Thanks Heather! We won a really cool CD of a band named War Stories from one of her contests!  Thanks again!

We’re hoping we can spring Sue Henry from Peducah and come on down to have a couple with us!  She can see the beautiful picture framed and hung here which we won from her Photography blog!  Thanks again Sue!

Holly is so darned busy, we wish she could be here.  She’s another one who never fails to make us laugh!

Wendy will come here and make sure I’m not using plastic cups!  No worries my friend! C’mon by!  Bring Blog Harbor! We tune in!

Lori is here!  She always makes me look at things in a good way!

Wow we have a lot of new friends since we opened our virtual door.  Some of you may still be confused with the staff here so I will give you a brief rundown of the folks here at the Tavern:

Oscar – Me.  Ex-corporate guy who hung it all up to run a Tavern.

Charlene – A very pretty Co-Owner and best buddy of Oscar.  From the same corporate world. Creator of most of OT’s best lunches, and the “real” boss.

Willy – Oscar’s Uncle – A seasoned bartender.

Vinnie – A Staten Island native – Bartender and bouncer.

Lisa – A Jersey girl. Part time bartender and kitchen staff. An old friend of Oscar’s.

Leo – Oscar’s buddy from Long Island, part time bartender – hell raiser.

Sally – Vinnie’s sweetheart.  She’s our bar fly.

Kim -Mmmm!  A perty lady Oscar is VERY fond of…..(but keeps a secret about it) His “long cool woman”.

Belinda – A close friend of Oscar’s from the corporate world.

Doxie – A very close distant friend of Oscar’s!   (HWhat?)1107080727

Almalee – The Queen of shoes and a buddy of Oscar.

Betty – Oscar’s photographer friend. (actually a blogger)

Jeannie – A woman Oscar went crazy for……………………………………………….

Jack and Twinkle – Jack and Oscar take business road trips. Twinkle does paperwork for Oscar and is Jack’s wife. They are both great people and regulars at Oscars.  Where’d all the Vodka go?

Eddie – Oscar’s buddy in the corporate world.

And a cast of others….

Bloggers become staff members or assume names we come up with.  Depends on how much you comment and get behind the scenes.

Oscar travels a lot and at times can’t find time to post so the staff takes turns sometimes.  We welcome guest posts! I think Meleah is next.

Only Oscar writes “Conditionally Satisfactory“.  A more personal view of Oscars life outside the tavern.

Well its time for todays joke.

1. A woman walks into a bar and the bartender says “Hey where’d you get the pig?”
The women says “This isn’t a pig it’s a duck”
and the bartender says “No, I was talking to the duck!”

2. A man walks into a bar and asks, ‘Do you serve women in this bar?’
‘No,’ replies the barman, ‘you have to bring your own.’

 3. A horse walks into a bar, he sits down and the bartender asks him, “Why the long face?”
Then a second horse walks in with jumper cables attached to it’s head, he sits down, and the bartender says, “I don’t mind the long face, but don’t you go and try to start anything!”

6978586_9b4a0fa465_o 4. So this guy walks into a bar and notices there’s a bunch of meat hanging from the ceiling. the guy says ” hey bartender, I’ll bet you a $100 bucks I can jump up and grab some meat from that ceiling”. The bartender says, “I don’t know man, them steaks are pretty high”.

5. A guy runs in a bar and he asks the bartender for 24 shots of his finest whisky. When the bartender has poured the shots the guy drinks them down as fast as possible. The bartender says “wow I’ve never seen anyone drink that fast before” and the guy says “You would to if you had what I had” and the bartender says “What is it you have?” And the guy says “25 cents” and runs out of the bar.

6. Two penguins walk into a bar…a third penguin says “You’d have thought the second one would have seen it.”

7.There is this bear, right, and he walks into a bar. He goes up to the bartender and says “Can I have a large Gin and . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Tonic Please?”

The Barman replies “Yeah sure, but what’s with the big pause?”

The bear holds up his paws and says “I’m a bear!!”

8. A rabbi, a priest, and a bishop walk into a bar.

The bartender says, “What is this, some kind of joke?”

9. A ducks walks into a bar and asks, “Got any grapes?”

The bartender, confused, tells the ducks that no, his bar doesn’t serve grapes. The duck thanks him and leaves. duck

The next day, the duck returns and says, “Got any grapes?”

Again, the bartender tells him that, no, the bar does not serve grapes, has never served grapes, and, furthermore, will never serve grapes. The duck, a little ruffled, thanks him and leaves.

The next day, the duck returns, but before he can say anything, the bartender begins to yell: ”Listen, duck! This is a bar! We do not serve grapes! If you ever ask for grapes again, I will nail your stupid duck beak to the bar!”

The duck is silent for a moment, and then asks, ”Got any nails?”

Confused, the bartender says no.

”Good!” says the duck. ”Got any grapes?”

10. The Grand Finale…the best of both worlds…A bar joke with a pirate!

So, this pirate walks into a bar with a captain’s wheel crammed down the front of his pants and the bartender says, ‘why have you got a captain’s wheel crammed down the front of your pants?’ And the pirate says, ‘arrgh! It’s driving me nuts!


Well I want to thank my Buddy Jennifer again for introducing me to blogland, and to all of the folks who read and comment.  Its fun.  Oscar’s Tavern lets me tell a lot of real stories, through a different window.  Most of the tales told here are true. Like at any bar……

The Snoopy?   The Cupcakes?      Hmmmm.  Lot’s of things are sprinkled in the posts as little “hello’s” to certain people.  Look for yours!












We have some Shiner-Bock for our dear friend Doxie!
