The art direction is very played. The copy is played. The idea is very small. Pub=liquor=hangover... pretty much true for any pub/bar out there. Due to lack of originality and imagination I'm going to give a 2/10.

I agree with Chough, there is something there to play with, the whole chivalry and knights angle, but it's falling wayyyyy short.

I dunno, I can respect a good Jheri curl. Much like a good mullet.

You could always throw back a bit of Mr Miyagi's wisdom:
"Do karate yes. Do karate no. Do karate half-half.... squish! Just like grape."

I want you to keep describing where you work. It sounds like a version of The Office. Got anyone who collects and hoards rubber bands?

ha, i just asked a woman I work with if she had any rubber bands, and she gave me a bag of about 1000. All different shapes and sizes and smells. I've got enough rubber here to cover paris hilton's next night out.

They are delicious! I'm having the little heart cookies with imprinted graphics on them. The cocoa ones are good too.
Now I'm going out to get some hummus and dark chocolate... not to eat together mind you.
