BELLY UP

A Flyer reader (and patron of Old Zinnie's) wrote in to tell the following tale: Apparently a group of "special needs" protesters descended on Old Zinnie's on September 22nd to complain about the beloved watering hole's lack of accessibility for would-be drunks in wheelchairs. Two of the protesters, a male and a female, went so far as to abandon their wheelchairs, crawl on their bellies into the bar, and demand service. After first noting that it is against policy to serve alcohol to people who are lying on the floor, the reluctant bartender complied. The female protester drank her beer but the male did not. Now we have to wonder: Who was really thirsty here and who was just trying to impress the ladies?
