The Bartender2Go Stimulus Plan

Now that the holidays are over and the Inauguration is a cold but warm and fuzzy memory, what's left to celebrate? The month of Love with Bartender2Go of course! Yes, we know, your Bailout package from Congress hasn't arrived yet, however, we are determined to stimulate your taste buds with our Love Potion. If that doesn't work, you can always fall back on the Bartender2Go Stimulus Martini. What, you need more motivation? Ok, since you insist, book a bartender or wait-staff person during the month of February and receive a free gift!
Whatever you do, make sure you share your Bailout Package with us!!!
