Kid comes up to the bar with his buddies, drops his ID on the bar, says, do you give free shots for birthdays? I look at him. He’s gonna get his free shot…and leave. Alright. Let’s make this fun.

Absolutely. 21st?  He says, yeah. Well, birthday boy. A free shot, coming right up.

Let’s give him the Three Wisemen.

I pour equal parts Jose Tequila, Jack Daniels, and Jim Beam. The Three Wisemen. Jim, Jack, and Jose.

Here ya go, birthday boy. He looks at it, grabs it, starts sniffing. C’mon, man. Don’t sniff it. Drink it. He says, what is it?  I say, it’s your birthday shot. Don’t think about it. You’re a man now. Drink it.

He does it. And by the looks of his face,

Doesn’t like it.

You come in my bar, ask for a birthday shot?  Guy, girl, don’t matter.

Meet The Three Wisemen.

Like they did with Jesus,

There’s your present, kid.

From my heart to yours,

Clint Curtis. Bartender.
