Dear BT FBC Clientêle
Today I’m filling in for everyone who has filed out.  Mondays are not the best days to start a new job… but an excellent day to be let go from one.  Two days recovery time from two days celebration time, and one wouldn’t have to address the problem of unemployment until Saturday.  Perfect…
I’ll try to keep you happy with whatever you order, but don’t be surprised if the service is slow, sloppy and sometimes grumpy….  The bar is open, so take what you want.  The books are flying off the shelves… in the best FBC tradition of Brother Feldspar… “When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes. – Erasmus”

Name an interest, and I’ll throw you a book… I don’t recommend the food today, it’s all coming from the deli next door.  But I can recommend the great pot luck provided by our friends and patrons… Recipe cards are next to the betting slips on the window sills.  

Food Catered by the Full Belly Deli

There’s a heavy poker game going on in the back, just follow the trail of the stale smoke… As always there’s a pool game going on downstairs, and please remember NO JUMP SHOT ALLOWED  I don’t know how long we can keep the pool table, one more broken cue and one more chipped 8 ball and it might be the end…..  

Try to remember:
 “No Spillage In The Village”
“No Hassle in the Castle”

Basically, try and clean up after yourself, because it’s pretty sure I won’t have time to get around to it.  The first race is on at 2/30 and the last one is running at 6/30.  There will be no service at all for those four hours…. Clear the runway, keep the door open at all times.  The pay phone is hardly working, and any money you lose in it is lost and gone.  The bar phone is not officially working, so anyone ducking the boss, the creditor, or the Love Object, rest assured your anonymity is our number one concern.
