Slogan Slingin'

One of the things I had wanted to have for the bar was a good slogan that pretty much encompassed the feeling we want the bar to have.  We didn't really wanna take The Den's slogan ("Fresno's Bear and Leather Bar") because that seems (at best) a little rude.

Over the past several weeks, you may have noticed the slogan we use on our website change.  We tried out several.

But, I think we've settled it with "Conveniently Infamous™" even if we don't even quite know what it means.  (And how can we be infamous before we even open?  And what's so covenient about the place anyway?  The Cedar off-ramp is bizarre and getting to the bar from 168 is an exercise in map-reading and using a sextant!!)

Karl had a few of his own slogans that were summarily rejected by committee:
  • In The Phoenix No One Can Hear You Scream
  • Hooker-free Since 2010
  • $4.50 Drinks for $4.50 People
  • Now in Senseround!
  • Smells Like Fish; Tastes Like Chicken
  • Home of the Meal-Replacement Cocktail!
  • Solves that Not-So-Fresh Feeling
  • Friends, Fun and Flexible Phallus


  1. I have to say that I enjoy this blog everyday. It's one of the first things I check now before I check my e mail or read the paper. Thanks for writing it and keeping the public informed of your daily progress. I can't wait to be a regular customer!

  2. I have to agree with the other comment I love reading on the progress of the bar and I cant wait for it to open.

  3. You guys say the nicest things!

    That's one of the things I'd hoped to do with the blog. I didn't want to leave the entire community wondering what was going on. And, yeah, sometimes it's been difficult to come up with something to say but I do what I can.
