Downtown Sports Bar turns into a Wine and Spa Joint!

So a couple of weeks ago as I was sipping my Vodka and Soda Diet Coke at my favorite South Main Sports bar (I know that Rocky doesn’t do internet so I am safe not mentioning the Tavern) and we were discussing world peace the upcoming nuptials of the owner of the bar to his high school sweetheart. The name of the bar is named after him and we said that it would be funny if we changed the bar into the name of his soon to be bride. Well naturally as all good things happen while sitting in a bar, a plan was made and it was amazing how many people rolled out for the meeting and then for the transformation. The happy couple was married in Mexico and our plan was to change Max’s into Cayley’s Sports bar on Sunday night but those plans got changed once we found out that Cayley would be starting back to school on Monday and wouldn’t get a chance to see our handiwork. We then enlisted the other owner into inviting them to have drinks then have dinner at one of the restaurants across from the bar and have a “Drop in for a beer” where we could showcase our hard work.
Naturally the newlyweds were running late but I assured my accomplice who was inviting them for a beer that we were good and that I realized that it was ploy for him to make all of us sit in his bar and order more drinks as we were waiting. Needless to say “Operation Cayley’s Sports Bar” was a huge success and many thanks to all of those who helped decorate, plan and coordinate the undertaking. While we were there waiting on them a New Orleans Saints fan came in and even got excited about the new menu as we replaced the old standbys with girly food samplings such as Water Cress sandwiches and Baked Brie with fruit.
Congrats to Max and Cayley from your Downtown family!
