An Orange County bar is in hot water for how they chose to celebrate Cinco De Mayo. Hennessey’s Tavern thought they were being clever when they setup a large inflatable green wall. The idea was to have drunk people climb to the top, if they made it, they got a green card:
Each green card was good for one free drink. The idea didn’t go over so well with customers. After learning that they could climb a wall to get a green card, many customers complained on Yelp. The complaints became so bad that Yelp had to issue a warning message:
The tavern tried to apologize for the event:
“A message from Paul Hennessey:
I would like to thank everyone for your comments about our climbing wall. Our intentions were to create a dialogue and show how ridiculous that it is to spend tens of millions of dollars to build a wall and even infer that Mexico foot some or the entire bill and have their citizens build it.
This event obviously struck a chord with many of you out there and you and a number of you did not understand our intent. I encourage all of you to take the time that you have spent posting on social media to spend an equal or greater amount of time writing your congressman or the President himself to express your concerns just as I have.
Thank you for your comments and let’s stop this wall from being built.” – Hennessey’s Tavern
