For the typical nine-to-five work-week slave, Sunday nights are for staying at home and dreading Mondays. And while the adventurous twenty-something will still occasionally pull a bar-closing bender and struggle through day one like the walking dead, most indentured employees send a very clear message by staying on the couch: Screw you, hangover get lost until Saturday.
Corey Sylvester, assistant manager of Whiskey Bar, wants to change all that. He knows that Sundays at Whiskey Bar or any bar, for that matter are a tough sell, but he also knows he can't make any money if the bar's closed, so he's beefed things up a bit. He tried competitive Rock, Paper, Scissors, but only six people showed, so he's added a second night of free Texas Hold 'Em action à la the Denver Poker Tour, plus a post-deal Nine-Ball tournament with generous bar-tab prizes that can be used gasp! the same night. The man is a visionary.
Sign-up for poker begins at 6:30 p.m., with the action usually ending around 10; billiards starts immediately after. Whiskey Bar is at 2201 Larimer Street. Get more information at 303-297-0303 or www.whiskeybardenver.com.
