We here at ALWAYS OVERSERVED believe that old bar signs are not merely relics of the past but enduring works of art that should be celebrated. Here is the first of our international tour of watering holes, taverns, bars, dives and dumps who's signs remain as beacons to a disappearing world of booze joints of the past.

Many of you have sent letters recently demanding to get the behind-the-scenes scoop on all of the hard work and brilliant innovation that goes into the daily Always Overserved cartoons that delight millions.

Always Overserved "coffee" mug
Thumb your nose at authority figures with this clever invention. It looks and feels just like a real coffee mug but only you know that inside is something with a little more 'kick'.

Here at ALWAYS OVERSERVED BLOG we don't always need to try to impress our readers with fancy colors and fully-conceived punchlines. We know that you are much too sophisticated to be dazzled by these gimmicks. Some may call it lazy, but I call it an artistic statement against the tyranny of flashy web cartoons and soul-less "finished" artwork.
I've sketched one of the many watering holes found in the greater Denver metro area but omitted the name. If you can post a comment and come up with the name of this establishment then we will send you a complementary mini bottle of Old Grandad Bonded Bourbon Whiskey. (DISCLAIMER: Actual bottle will be empty and/or will not be sent.)
