On a Wednesday
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of the best shows on television. First of all it’s in Philly, the best city in the world. Second of all, the characters and their lives … well they just rock. It’s a genuinely hilarious, completely absurd pile of crazy that has somehow managed to translate into the best TV out there.
Every Sunny fan wants to go to Paddy’s Pub. Of course a place as disgusting and poorly managed could never exist, but the show’s Rob McElhenny has come up with a bangin’ alternative: Mac’s Tavern.
Mac’s Tavern kicks some serious ass. It takes classic meals, like meatball hoagies (keyword: HOAGIE) or mac and cheese with friggin crab meat, and turns them absolutely delicious. The beer selection rocks too. You can’t not love this place, it’s impossible.
You can hate crappy customers, though. Like the group of ladies that walked out of Mac’s last night without paying for their meals or drinks. Now I only dabble primarily in Bird Law, but I’m pretty sure that’s illegal. I’ve never been a server, but a lot of my friends are, and I know how important tips are. What kind of middle aged women steal food? Really? Who has that little care about other people and their business?
If I was the server that got screwed out of this order, I would have called up my boyfriend, cried and used every curse in my arsenal. If I was the owner, I would have done the same, likely without any crying because I feel like an owner of a bar has to be a little ballsier than that. But that’s about it. Mac’s on the other hand, went America all over everybody’s asses.
Mac’s posted a series of photos from their security cameras, like the one here, on their Facebook page, basically demanding what is rightfully theirs. They said that if they handed over the cash that was due that the photos wouldn’t be spread across the city. So who has the upper hand now, you thieving broads?
I can’t help but absolutely love this. Too many times in the business world companies are afraid to kick butt, out of fear of losing customers or causing a commotion. Mac’s deserves to be super mad, and they aren’t staying quiet about something that is wrong and horrible in so many ways. Their strategy has been received very well, as you can see by the fan page comments, and the bar has definitely earned a ton of respect from me (I know, I know, that’s a big deal).
There are bad people in the world that will just continue being jerks, and they need to be told to shut up and to stop acting like a bunch of boners. Let’s hope that some people manage to get these clowns and get what they deserve.
