Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the bars, Mark Bruno and his brother,The Other Bruno, have turned their qualnt, quiet and venerable Bruno's American Grille and Pub into ground zero for The St. Louis Area's Finest St. Patrick's Day Party Held 3-Days After St. Patrick's Day.
It's a tradition at Bruno's NOT to compete with the HUGE St. Pat's Day event held a few hundred miles to the south in Rolla, Missouri. It is the weekend when The Knighting Ceremony is held and back in the ancient pre-PC days, a dip in The Alice Vat was par for the course.
In sleepy, sedate and nearly comatose Rolla, the student engineers at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (M.U.S.T. - once known as "The School of Minds" or the Universty of Missouri Rolla) are normally found in libraries or in one of the many supervised fraternity study halls, slaving away over equations that would make a liberal arts major cry like a CUBs fan in Busch Stadium with Albert Pujols coming to the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out in the bottom of the 9th. in the 7th Game Of the World Series with the CUBS up 1-0.
NOTE: CUBS - is the name of Chicago's pathetic excuse for a National League baseball team that is easily remembered by its initials: Completely Useless By September. Not to be confused with Chicago's other line up of chronic losers in The American League know as The Chicago White Sox...or as we say here in the Cadinal Nation..."The White Sux!"
Nor or they to be confused with the 3rd pathetic team of losers from Chicago, The ACORNS aka The Obama inner Circle of Jerks.
Who has ADD? Back to Bruno's!! On every St. Pat's Day, the normally intensely studious engineers-to-be let their hair down and Irish out as the entire Rolla campus adopts the motto is "Party we M.U.S.T!"
Three days later, the walking wounded alums from St. Louis gather at Bruno's American Grille and Pub for a bit of the "hair of the dog" and for one last Hurrah for St. Patrick and Old M.U.S.T.!
The Bruno Brothers, who are very fine and well-endowed lads in many ways (good looks NOT being one of them), had the wisdom - in a rare moment of lucid sobriety - to hire the one and only, drop-dead gorgeous, well-endowed with charm, grace and a beautiful face, the never been married and hardly ever been kissed yet none-the-less legendary, Annie Fannie, as their Mistress of Beverage Dispensement and Director Cultural Entertainment.
So, if you're looking for the time of your life, in the congenial company, cordial friendship and conjugal fellowship of mechanical, electrical, structural, chemical, civil and uncivil engineers --and stunningly beautiful coleens of questionable character and unquestionable endowments, here is the place to be on Saturday, March 20, 2010.
Bruno's American Grille and Pub...just a few blocks south of I-64/40 and/or I-44 -- on the east side of Hampton.
If you get to the Hampton and Watson Y-split...you've gone too far.
If you get to the St. Louis Zoo...you've gone too far in the WRONG direction, and you may be too stupid to enjoy the sophisticated humor, wit and wisdom liberally dispenseed at this gathering of erudite engineering intellectuals.

PS: Be sure to get a Genuine Lucky Irish Fortune Cookie, thoughtfully provide by a fun-loving, bon vivant, prominent and distinguished Rolla Alum, who wishes to remain anonymous.
So, if you open one of Greg Slack's thoughtfully-provided fortune cookies and place the fortunes found inside each Irish Fortune Cookie under your pillow for 3-days and sleep on it, you may get lucky.
At least that's what the mesmerizingly gorgeous Ms. Annie Fannie told me.
And believe me, getting lucky with Annie Fannie would make any strapping Rolla lad sing Tooorah-Loorah--Loorah...Toorah...Loorah-LIIIIIII!!!
Will The Spotted Dog be spotted amid the revelers at Bruno's?
Let's just leave it at, "Woof!"
