Today is the 233rd birthday of the United States Marine Corps. We wish all Marines and their families a very happy birthday.
If you're looking for a way to celebrate, considering heading down to Keegan's Pub (love the retro 1998 web site look) and enjoying a pint with proprietor Terry Keegan, himself a jarhead of some renown.
You can also take advantage of Keegan's seventh annual Salute To The Military:
The Pub will be decorated with the flags from the various branches of the service and all active duty, retired and military veterans will receive their first drink free.
This is a great opportunity for military people and veterans to get together and swap stories over a drink or two. Get a group together and join the celebration.
If you are not military or a military veteran this is an opportunity for you to mingle and say "thank you"
The free drink offer is good anytime from Friday, November 7, through Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11.
Terry has a well-earned reputation as the Mr. Krabs of local bar owners and he doesn't pony up free drinks unless he believes you've really earned it.
Which makes his recently announced January promotion all the more special. To celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama, Keegan's will be unveiling their first annual Salute to Community Organizers. The pub will be decorated with protest signs from the various groups and all current and former community organizers will receive their first drink free (upon furnishing a pay stub from a foundation).
This is a great opportunity for community organizers to get together and agitate over a drink or two. Get your grievance group together and join the celebration.
If you are not a community organizer, this is an opportunity for you to mingle and say "thank you." It's sometimes easy for us to forget how disorganized our communities would be without the service and sacrifice of these folks.
The free drink offer is good anytime from Friday, January 16, through Inauguration Day, Tuesday, January 20.
