Six Flags Over Madison

The Bottleneck Lounge has found a clever way to advertize the presence of their cute little bar on Madison: a series of themed events which can be publicized via large flags hung above the door.

Pride events sported a Rainbow flag, South African wine evenings gave us a South African Flag.

Next event:

Saturday July 28th: Pirate Night!

Avast ye landlubbers! Abandon your post on July 28th and make quick to The BottleNeck Lounge for our first annual Pirate Party. (click here for details).
And now, a challenge for all of you Vexillologists: think of other suitable events to celebrate at the Bottleneck that can be celebrated with flags that are easily obtained (or you can supply) and E-mail info@bottlenecklounge.com with your ideas. Who knows, there might even be a free drink in it for you!

BTW, talking of Pirates: my choice of Pirate Song is "Pirate Jenny" , from The Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, which ends so poignantly:

Then they'll pile up the bodies
And I'll say,
"That'll learn ya!"

(here's a recording by Nina Simone)

(and if I was asked to suggest a local band to perform it I'd suggest The Cutters)
