It’s probably expected that our baby would have pint-sized attire from our own bar (and he does, and there will be more), but we didn’t expect to receive baby clothes from other bars.
A few weeks ago, a package arrived at the bar addressed to Dave. Inside we found a note from bartender Red at Kelly’s Westport Inn in Kansas City, along with a Kelly’s-logo’d baby T-shirt and a onesie that proclaimed “Future Kelly’s Patron.”
It’s really neat to see how tight the bar community is. We see Red a few times a year, usually when we stop for Joe’s Pizza and a drink at Kelly’s before a concert at the Beaumont Club. It was certainly a surprise to get these in the mail from him. Now I’m thinking we need to start collecting babywear from all the bars.
