City Council Meetings to Feature Cash Bar


In an effort to increase public participation in city government, Erie city council has installed a cash bar in council chambers. Even Mayor Joe Sinnott is  aboard with the idea, saying “Council is accustomed to listening to incoherent ramblings, so nothing much will change.” The Mayor added the he will start attending council meetings as soon as they get a karaoke machine.

Erieites seem to be in favor of the bar. “A bar? At a city council meeting? I might have to stumble over for that,” said Sherlock’s patron Steve Caton.

City council members will rotate bartending duties, and will offer special drinks such as:

The “Bagnoni” – a martini served with a tiny fedora on a toothpick.

The “Tullio” – a shot and a beer with a dash of Brylcreem.

The “Filippi” – you just pay your money and get nothing in return.
