Bucketheads Vs. Spillers: Clooney's Lingo Decoded
*photo courtesty "jericl cat" flickr user
You've walked past it dozens, maybe hundreds of times. You'eve even stumbled inside, taken a seat, or instead had your seat taken. You have been to Clooneyville and it is a world unto itself, complete with its own local lingo:
Cloney's - the 15 denizens of Clooney's whose seats are reserved at all times.
Cloon-bag - one who settles their tab less than once a year.
Northerners - those who frequent the more popular bars between 16th-24th streets but occasionally accidentally visit Clooney's.
Bucketheads - those who are not welcome at Clooney's; usually end up outside with the cigarette bucket over their head.
Easterners (aka Pirates) - Raiders fans. Not welcome inside or outside of Clooney's; no exceptions, get tha hell outta here.
Spillers - patrons prone to fighting; results in spilled drinks and bloodshed; also the best customers.
Crybabies - those coming from nearby mortuaries; not the best tippers.
Passers - those who have paid a $200 fee for annual bottomless pint glass of Miller.
