A warm (phew what a scorcher) welcome to one and all in the all new Argy. Topless waiters a speciality. Cocktails served in pint mugs. Nibbles available…….

MissAdventure Sun 07-Aug-22 16:55:04

Yes, I've seen the topless waiters showcasing their nibbles. wink

Shirley48 Sun 07-Aug-22 16:56:21

You don’t miss much….grin

Prentice Sun 07-Aug-22 16:57:34

perhaps this is the right bar to ask for a cocktail in, what is on offer please?
if I ask for a rum punch will I get a black eye?

MissAdventure Sun 07-Aug-22 16:59:12

You will if you partake of the exercise class in that bikini!

MawtheMerrier Sun 07-Aug-22 17:00:29

I’ll have Sex on the Beach.🍹
Oh, and to drink……..?

Prentice Sun 07-Aug-22 17:01:48

heh heh
I do seem to be bulging in all the wrong places, but it is a very hot day.
perhaps the waiting staff can find me a sarong to cover my blushes?

Shirley48 Sun 07-Aug-22 17:02:16

The head waiter, Anton (known to his friends as Handson), will bring you the cocktails list ASAP

Anton will be with you shortly (he’s not very tall)

MawtheMerrier Sun 07-Aug-22 17:03:29

Saright, sarong- nobody’s judgemental here in the Argy.

Important Notice

“Because of the water shortage, whiskies will be served on the rocks only.” 🥃

Maybe a Singapore Sling….?

Is that the pile of rocks outside by the bins?

Prentice Sun 07-Aug-22 17:10:01

I can hear shouting from an old man in the other room, saying something about when am I going to cook dinner so although I could stay in this bar for ages, had better go.I will definitely be back as cocktails like this are rare, three for the price of one.
will there be dancing and singing at some point?

Undoubtably! MawtheMerrier will probably start the karaoke off later, once she’s had her Sex on the Beach (and her drink)

Shirley48 Sun 07-Aug-22 17:34:44

Anton will take your orders - order what you like as he has a very long………………….memory

MawtheMerrier Sun 07-Aug-22 17:41:53

I’ve got a new Conservative Leader Cocktail it’s called the Harvey Headbanger.
Used to be called Wallbanger , but if you’ve listened to them you’ll see where I’m coming from.

MawtheMerrier Sun 07-Aug-22 18:41:43

I think I’ve just seen Anton in the diving at the Commonwealth Games.
He didn’t have his tray, but most of the rest of his equipment seemed to be in excellent order.

Shirley48 Sun 07-Aug-22 18:46:17

Ooh, I missed that - I’d like to have seen Anton performing. Yes, I think he oils his equipment regularly.

Lucca Sun 07-Aug-22 19:27:47

Not so much Anton du Bec as Anton du Pec

Pittcity Sun 07-Aug-22 20:46:49

At least Anton seems to be wearing his tight undies unlike the lycra clad runners. I need one of your strongest cocktails and a lie down!!!

Shirley48 Sun 07-Aug-22 21:12:09

Apparently one of THE most potent cocktails is Death in the afternoon or Hemingway Champagne, as it was invented by Ernest Hemingway. It is simply (!) Champagne and Absinthe……
3 pints on their way to you, Pittcity. You could have a lie down afterwards, if you can find a space on the floor - there seem to be quite of lot of people ‘having a lie down’…….

Do you open for morning coffee? I'd like to bring my elderly mother for elevenses and maybe some nibbles.
Thanks.

MawtheMerrier Mon 08-Aug-22 10:17:40

Was that who I heard exclaiming “Affogato ! “ when she got stuck on today’s Sudoku? blush

VB000 Mon 08-Aug-22 10:23:09

I'll have a long sloe comfortable screw, up against the wall please!!

Followed by a lie-down....

Doodle Mon 08-Aug-22 10:33:20

Crumbs Shirley where did you find Anton…..and more to the point how have you managed to keep him out of the hands of GrannyGravy and her masterful thigh grip. 😲
It’s a bit early for me (not) but I’ll indulge in a double Bosom Caresser followed by a Banana Bliss please 😋
