The Friendliest Place in Town

May 14, 1968, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
I'd bet you thought May was just Mothers' Day and the start of the summer marked by Memorial Day.  Au contraire!  It's National Tavern Month (yup, since 1953, it's been a "thing"). 
As the National Beer Wholesalers Association's press release says, it's a "celebration of the many licensed bars and taverns that provide hundreds of thousands of jobs to hardworking men and women and enrich America's social culture."

So, to all of you longing for that place where everybody knows your name, here's to you.  


  1. Kinda funny, Tony's is the only one still under the same name!

  2. Crazy! I never knew it was tavern month before...I thought ALL months were tavern month! :D
