Word of a new sports bar opening in Northwest Fresno has piqued my interest. It’s called The Press Box and is supposed to open Oct. 17 with the usual sports bar amenities — flat screens, sports memorabilia, lots of beer on tap.
The most intriguing part of The Press Box, if you ask me, is a feature that I’ve never seen at a bar before: A built-in breathalyzer.
According to the press release:
This will also be the only sports bar and restaurant in valley history to feature a public self serve breathalyzer to measure ones blood alcohol content level to aid in the assistance of responsible drinking and driving on those big game days.
Lots of questions: Does it really work? Is it sanitary? At the same time: How many people will go there for the gimmick of it? And it is pretty responsible, right?
So I’m not sure about this one. It’s either hella awesome (FTW) or a testimonial about what a bunch of drunkards we are (WTF). Let’s hear from you.
WTF = What the [Fudgesicle], a.k.a. “What are you thinking?”
FTW = For the Win, a.k.a. “That idea is a victory for people everywhere.”
