“The Ugly Mug”

Description from Classy Chick JbyJill: This is the name of a famous restaurant in Cape May, NJ. My husband and I love to go in to town to eat lunch there. They have excellent food! The bar has a unique tradition. You can buy a mug, assign you a number, and they will hang it on their ceiling. Every time you go in, you can give them your mug number. When one of their loyal patrons passes away they turn their mug toward the sea!!!! What a wonderful tribute.....

    Very cool tradition! This certainly is NOT an ugly bunch of beads.

    If I was a more daring beader, I would just throw them all together – wa- la – beautiful, instant necklace.

    When I first saw the title of your pick, Jill, I thought you were going to say it was about the mug you were drinking your coffee out of this morning. LOL

    That doesn’t seem fair. They should be an equal opportunity mugger. ;-)

    Not sure…. Still trying to figure that out myself!! I got up at 5:07 to go to the BR and couldn’t fall back to sleep. Extremely unusual for me!!!!!

    Which part is extremely unusual for you — getting up to go to the BR or not being able to fall back to sleep? LOL ;-)

    I hate those mornings! Tossing and turning…better just to go to the LB site, post a great pick like this one—new Fav, by the way… and visit with the Chicks! LOL :-)

    catchy title :) cool tradition and (I’m assuming) very unique (for the states anyways)… wonder if there’s some olde tradition being carried on here…. I’m also assuming your husband might have his very own mug here :)

    Valentine Chick says:

    Can’t ya put something else in your mug? A bar in town used to keep a mug for you too. Not sure what they did with it if someone died though. Maybe scratched off the name and reused it! LOL

    Jill, I’m also appreciating the story behind this Pick, I thought too that it referred to a coffee cup of yours, LOL!!! what a way fun and touching tradition to honor regular customers, wish some coffee houses had this type of tradition for us coffee drinkers!!! :)

    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    We went there to eat lunch today!! Yummy :) Chris had a chili burger and I had a fried flounder sandwich!

  24. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I agree with Jen — you should be able to drink something else out of your reserved mug, Jill!!! :D

    Jen, that is too funny about them just scratching off the person’s name and reusing the mug once they’re gone! LOL

    What about us tea drinkers?!?!?! LOL

    How many more times will you eat there before you leave on Saturday, Jill? LOL

    How many more pounds of fudge will you eat before you leave on Saturday, Jill? LOL
