Greetings Roundhouse Faithful!
The new year is underway and the Roundhouse is chugging along at full speed. At the end of last year Mark came to me and asked if I could do what we in the business call a “monthly blog post” instead of the half ass job I normally do. No problem buddy, I have this. Well yesterday Mark asked where the monthly blog was. I guess he wanted those months in a row. So here we go, the official once a month blog post. Heck who knows, maybe when I get up to speed I can do a bi-monthly blog. I have always been a little bi-curious, so who knows. Baby steps.
One thing you will notice when you visit Roundhouse Brewery, beside the excellent beer and the cozy historic decor, is how damn fine looking the staff of Roundhouse are. You are probably wondering how we keep things above the table if you know what I mean. You don’t know what I mean? I am not sure I do either. What I am trying to say, as business owners, is how do we prevent a situation like what happened with Harvey “time to feed the plants” Weinstein, and Al “I’m a hugger” Franklin. That’s easy, we follow the same traditions that Norwegian Lutherans brought with them from the old country.
Rule One, absolutely no eye contact with someone of the opposite sex, or any sex for that matter. We have perfectly good walls and floors you can stare at instead. Remember the old Minnesotan joke where introverts stare at their own feet and extroverts stare at the other person’s feet? Well there will be no staring at other people’s feet you pervert.
Rule Two, if you absolutely have to hug someone, say your grandma you haven’t seen in 10 years, then remember you are skating on very thin ice. We strongly enforce the Minnesota side hug. You are allowed to put one arm over their shoulder and give them a quick squeeze. It goes without saying, absolutely no eye contact.
Rule Three, stay away from Nate.
That about sums it up. You see, if everyone just followed these simple rules actresses wouldn’t have to wear black to the award shows. To be honest the rules can be a little tricky. You tend to run into things when you stare at your feet all the time. It is also hard to remember who ordered what beer when you don’t know what they look like. Last of all, it is really hard to stay away from Nate, he is just so damn adorable.
Keep on Chugg’n . . . Responsibly!
