A CHARMING IDEA from the 50"s

found this little article..truley a sign of times...past.
CLOCKWATCHERS SPECIAL
Here's a variation of the clockwatchers special, which is featured at some clubs. At cocktail time, beginning at 4pm and ending at 7:30pm the cost of the drinks is determined by the customers time of arrival or time of order of first drink. If the customer, for example orders a drink at 4:45 the cost of the drink is 44 cents...isnt that charming and so ...50's
Here are a few yummy drinks that came with the article...

For the record my dad the Chef also managed the Officers Club when he was in the Air Force..but I don't think I ever saw him take a drink. Maybe a cup of punch or two at my sisters wedding but always a professional when on the job!
