Wade's Payoff - And He Wasn't Even Angry

Those of you who have been following my blog may recall how early in my quest, mid-January actually, I ran into the owner of Angry Wade's, Wade Hagenbart, across the street from his place at the Zombie Hut. We got to talking and when he found out what I was up to he said if I actually did manage to visit 1000 bars he would treat me to 100 drinks at his bar. Just what Bar Man needed, a bit more motivation. Well, I did it and Wade showed up at Pioneer and presented me with my prize.

I just want to say Thanks Wade, you were a true sport and you can expect to see quite a bit of me this year. Anyone interested in bumping into me might just be able to find me at Angry Wade's at 222 Smith Street in Brooklyn. Even if I am not there you can enjoy the great bar, nice fireplace, and pool table in the back.

Way to go Dan!

I enjoy seeing the highlights of the celebration. Sorry I missed it, and you at Lugers. And McSorley's for that matter.

I'll let you know when we'll be celebrating the Tiki Time II Extraveganza this year. Probably May someime.

Also, don't be TOO hard on Wade cashing in those free drink chips. All margarita's or martini's could do some damage!

1000 Bars said...

Yeah, do some damage to both Wade and me. Nothing like having 100 free drinks staring you in the face after hitting 1000 bars.

Looking forward to visiting your Tiki bar, I'll whip you up a dynamite Mai Tai and maybe a pitcher of Zombies.

Angry Wade sounds like a hell of a guy.

Looking forward to the instruction!

I have to head back to Asia de Cuba to freshen up my Mojito skills as well. The bartender there gave me a quick lesson a month or so ago, but after three, surprise! the recollection isn't so good. This time a pen will be with me!

Belated congratulations on your magnificent achievement. Now that your quest is at an end, will this blog go into mothballs? Just wondering if I should check back from time to time to see what you're up to.

1000 Bars said...

By all means check back. Whenever I hit a new or interesting spot I will post about it.

Congratulations! Saw you on the TV news and everything. My fiance was like, "Hey, isn't the guy you were talking about?" and I replied indeed it was the Bar Man. Please do keep up the blog, even if only for occasional bar reviews and histroy/trivia lesson. Best wishes and Happy New Year!

Great stories all along..the pictures helped too. Just another great blog! Congratulations! Like the others said, please don't stop blogging! How's the recovery going? That is, I assume you're recovering from all that fun this past year.
