Periodically I get asked what in the heck is Bar 595 from my check in’s on foursquare or if they see one of my 595 coozies, allow me to bring you up to date here. Anyway over the years I would find a particular funny/embarrassing pic of one of my friends who frequents the bar and would replace the movie pic with it. This has lead to many a “are you friggin kidding me, where did you find that pic” conversation when guests would see a new picture hanging in the bar. There have been some who bust my chops for not being hung in the “wall of
shame fame” and there have been some who provide me with pictures but like Reagan said in that famous debate “I am paying for this microphone” so no dice. Once you make the wall, well your drinks are free at Bar 595, and you get a free coozie and it is hard to come down unless you really piss us off but to date there have been no de-hanging’s. I have even gotten help from complete strangers in finding good pictures of friends of ours. One was a friend of Jimmy Lee from back in the MySpace days and that pic still hangs on the wall to this day. On occasion we have stumbled on an even funnier picture of one of our friends so naturally we will replace it and keep the bar “fresh”.
So this past week I decided to fire up the ole printer and hang some new ones on the wall and since I post so infrequently on the blog, I would kill 2 birds with one stone. Without further adieu on to the pics;
The west wall and here you can see Bar 595 director of marketing, English Mike Barns jumping out of a perfectly good airplane with a 595 coozie on his arm
Here is the North Wall and as you can see Uma from Pulp Fiction, still plenty of space left there Mallory Horner so watch out!
The ole South Wall and here to the left of the Miter is our travel companion from NYC
Existing Member and yes that is the Big Nasty and it looks like he made some friends on a trip to NOLA during Southern Decadence
Like I said, when we find one funnier, we replace it
Close up of English Mike and we can’t wait to replace this with a pic from his wedding next March! (existing member)
Here is one of my Legal Defense team members – el Diablo in the flesh! (existing member)
Here is a pic of my Financial Advisor and former neighbor (existing member)
Behind the Speedo you can see our favorite St Louis tavern owner putting back her bathing suit bottom with our Belizean fishing guide. Missy for some reason Felipe always asks me how you are doing? (existing member)
And Now to the New/Picture swap Members of the Wall of
Kind of a grainy picture of Pepe from Mexico but that is probably a good thing since he is trained to protect and serve
Congrats to my fellow Chef/Celebrity Stalker Allison for making the wall and for not dry humping Anthony Bourdain last night!
He whines like a little bitch when his picture is posted on Social Media so here is a big ole smiley face for a fellow neighbor and good friend of ours
Here is one half of the owners of our friends who happen to own a B&B down on that shitty little island that we call our second home.
(Note – she actually has never visited Bar 595 but this picture just makes me smile so down came a pic of the Sopranos with the agreement that she and our friends will come visit us)
And that’s it! Congrats to the newest members of the Wall of Shame and we look forward to sharing a cup of
beer water with you in the future. And to our friends who are not enshrined on the wall, don’t worry your day/night is coming, just watch out for the flash!
