Days of the week
Below is my interpretation of the days of the week:
Monday = Malibu Monday
Tuesday = Two fur Tuesday
Wednesday = Whiskey Wednesday
Thursday = Thirsty Thursday
Friday = F***ed up Friday
Saturday = Sloppy Saturday
Sunday = Sobering Sunday
Yes sunday is our day of rest...why? Because God said so.

STYLE & ENTERTAINING; Whiskey À Go-Go
By William Norwich
Published: October 06, 2002

Hopey even entertains at home—on Wednesdays, about once a month, in a sort of easy, breezy salon she calls Whiskey Wednesday. Simple stuff: a few bottles of whiskey, small groups of chums and if there is enough money, or everyone chips in, some take-away food from Rice, owned by her friend David Selig, on Mott Street nearby.

Off at 5, happy by 6
A review of some swanky spots

By Candice Woo

Out on Harbor Island, C Level Lounge‘s happy hour may be difficult to catch if you’ve got a 9-to-5 job since it ends at 5:30 p.m., but if you can play hooky, you’ll be rewarded with $5 appetizers including ahi tuna poke, fried calamari and a molten-centered, nut-crusted brie. A five spot will also get you a drink special, which varies throughout the week. Whiskey Wednesday is my favorite day, but Mojito Monday comes in a close second.

And because karaoke without a healthy amount of booze is like Hall without Oates, Common Interest offers a variety of weekly specials, including Tecate Tuesday, Whiskey Wednesday and Thirsty Thursday.
