Keep New Times Free

Five Guys You Meet at Speakeasy's Mantastic Wednesdays

Fellas, let's face it: It's hard being a man in a woman's world, especially when it comes to nightlife.

Ladies are always the ones who get to party (and get drunk) for free. So what's a guy to do when he wants to hang with the boys, watch football, and crush empty beer cans with his forehead?

Drink all the booze he wants for $5 at the Speakeasy Lounge's Mantastic Wednesdays.

"We cater to the guys totally," admits Samantha, one of the ladies who mans the bar. "Guys head out just to have a guy's day, and we put a bunch of [dude flicks] on the TV, like Die Hard, and movies that appeal to them."

And with all-you-can-drink wells from 8-11 p.m., the Speakeasy becomes a major sausage fest every week.

Here are five guys you'll meet at Mantastic Wednesdays, according to Samantha the bartender.

Duck Dynasty Doppelgangers

"Our biggest clientele are bearded guys," fesses Samantha.

"That's the majority of them! It's the bearded guys with tattoos. A lot of people ask if they're from Duck Dynasty," she laughs.

Now these dudes are hardcore, so they usually go for a whiskey ginger.

"That's definitely the most popular drink around them," claims Samantha. "It's pretty much a guarantee when it comes to those guys."

Frat Boy Trashed Dudes

"It's definitely a young crowd, and on Wednesday, it's even younger," explains Samantha.

"We get some guys that come in after work, and another group of guys who come with a group of friends to get trashed."

"They usually go for rum and coke or vodka cranberry because it's easy to drink and gives you that quick buzz."

Cheap and easy, just like most frat boys like it.


"We have domestic bucket specials for everyone, so a lot of our regulars come in with their girlfriends," says Samantha. "It's kinda like a gathering place."

And while the men down $5 liquor, Samantha says their lady friends go for light beers, ciders, and fireball shots.

A couple that drinks together, stays together.

Creepers Men Looking for Love

"You can always spot some of the guys in our late night crowd trying to hit on girls," explains Samantha.

Now these guys are easy to find - Samantha says they're the ones drinking beer and buying shots for the chicks they're trying to seduce.

So ladies, unless you're looking for love, say no to the Blow Jobs.

"We get a lot of first timers," claims Samantha. "When guys hear about it for the first time, they're like, 'No way!' and get super excited."

"They usually get one of everything: vodka, gin, tequila, and whiskey well drinks."

Cheap alcohol is always worth the over excitement.
