Frequent Drinker Yards Now Available Online

For the time being, as our programmer Josh slaves away valiantly on what will doubtless be the champagne of interactive Web drinking loyalty program interfaces, I've come up with a simple way to post yards balances online. I've assigned every frequent drinker a random ID number, and am posting that ID number with that drinker's current number of yards earned at the following site:

I'll update the yards once a week-ish. You'll also be able to see the status of your card on the site--"In Use" means you currently have your card and are using it, while other notations ("here for pickup", "no picture", etc.) are pretty self-explanatory. You should contact us at or come by if your status is anything but "In Use"--those without a picture, for instance, should come in to get one taken.

How do I know which ID number is mine? you naturally ask. Well, you can either come by the bar in person, or e-mail us, and we'll tell you what your number is. (We can't just post a list of numbers and names on the Web, for security and privacy's sake.)

Finally, if, after observing your yards balance, you think something is off, by all means shoot us an e-mail. We're still only a couple months in to the program, and there are bound to be glitches.
