A Pirate’s Life for Me: Hooks

23 Jun

Some times it’s the little things in life that make a big difference, for me it’s the availability of hooks when sitting at the bar. It might not sound like a big deal – especially if you are male – but it’s flat out annoying to try and figure out where to put your purse without it falling on the ground, or even just knowing your purse accessible to anyone standing behind you. (Paranoid? Maybe, I had my identity stolen a few years ago.)

Now I’m not talking about the girl hook:

I’m talking about  hooks often referred to as the ‘drunken octopus’ hooks that are screwed into the actual bar.

For this reason, any time I am sitting at a bar with hooks, it enhances my experience. My opinion of the bar becomes just a little bit better knowing that they are also thinking of their female customers – and the fact that I no longer have to worry about where my purse is.

I’m so pro-hooks, in fact, that it was my one request as my fiancé was finishing our bar that we have downstairs in our house. (We have a split level ranch, and downstairs is our ‘hang out’ area with our friends.)

Am I just obsessed or are you pro-hooks as well?
