MTTT - O'Duffy's

The M Thirsty Third Thursday gang celebrated St. Patrick's Day a little bit late, but better late than never is my motto.

About a dozen of us gathered to celebrate the various holidays this week, plus to congratulate Maddy on her upcoming retirement, which we now refer to as her graduation. Maddy has been at the company for nearly 30 years and has been involved in nearly aspect of the business. You couldn't ask for better, loyal employee than Maddy. The stories she could tell always had me in stitches. She will definitely be missed. Another bigger party will be held later in April for both her and her husband Randy (co-founder and Chairman of the Board), who is also retiring on March 31.

I love O'Duffy's. It is one of the coolest "neighborhood" bars in town. But it is so expensive. My tab with tip was nearly $40 and this was for a hamburger, a beer, and a couple glasses of wine. They also had a band there called "Who Hit John?" Kristen and I thought this was especially funny and immediately text messaged one of our VP's of Sales, whose name just happens to be John. He got a kick out of it once he figured out what we were talking about.

I just had the best time that night and was glad we got together. Until April 17 . . .
