I'm always on the lookout for things that I think would set The Phoenix apart from other bars. Today's discovery is coffee mugs from the Cafepress store of Someecards.com that I've happened to fall onto. They have, in my opinion, a bunch of mugs that would be perfect for the bar. They have the right attitude and irreverence and humor. Only problem is they're $15 each. I wish they were cheaper because I would love to use some of them for the bar. Unfortunately, I pretty well know they'd be too irresistible for some folks to leave at the bar and I know I can't get a decent enough bulk discount for the relatively small quantity the bar needs.
Plain, solid-color coffee mugs it is. (Maybe I can take a Sharpie and write the sayings in my crappy penmanship onto the mugs.... Maybe not.)
