Bar Calls Time On Glasses And Patrons Use Jam Jars

by | 25th, January 2009

TO the Time Bar in Leicester where locals are calling time on those new fangled glasses.
Barman Drew Mallins tells us:

“Some of us were making mojitos which, being from Cuba are quite a rustic drink anyway, and someone suggested we put them in some jam jars we had lying around.

Jam jar – car?

“We took it from there really. The idea is that instead of throwing empty jam jars away at home, people can bring them in to drink from them.

“They can have whatever they want, whether it’s beer, cocktails or just a Coke.

“It’s a bit like a modern version of a tankard. Hopefully people will personalise their own jars and then they can leave them here and have their own one every time they come in.

“It’ll help because it recycles glass, and we won’t be buying new glasses.”

The modern version of the tankard is a jam jar. The bleeding edge technology is to put the drink in puddle and lap it up. Millions do it every Saturday night – although the drink can look like sick.

And the modern version of being glassed is being jarred.

Lids, gentlemen, please…
