suthrnrunt: I thought their target market were crackers already.
tricycleracer: suthrnrunt: I thought their target market were crackers already.I live with my mom. Jim Beam would have been more trollworthy.
WTF Indeed: Meh, their bourbon is expensive Jack Daniels anyway.
StrandedInAZ: I don't know about that. It's quite popular within my (mostly back) circle of friends.
pxlboy: This is probably going to denigrate into a "black people don't tip" and/or tipping thread. I think I will sit this one out.Carry on.
So obviously when the Fark server goes down, the SysAdmins puts a Maker's Mark bottle there to ward off any minority looters, like garlic to a Frankenstein.
skankboy: The restaurant only licenses the name.
thisiszombocom: but as a private company, aren't they allowed to discriminate customers all they want? i mean, there's a country club near where i live that's legally obligated to be a EEO. but its not as if they allow non-white members.
OgreMagi: Wait a second here. The person wanting to have the party stated that it would be "100% african american". So who's being racist?
suthrnrunt: OgreMagi: Wait a second here. The person wanting to have the party stated that it would be "100% african american". So who's being racist?i wonder just how many of those self proclaimed african-american's have dual citizenship... thus they are liars!!!!
scubamage: If you license your name to someone who drags it through the mud constantly, it's time to revoke the license. I'm on their "Maker's Mark Ambassador" program and they actually sent documentation out explaining that all of the complaints against the bourbon house are because of the licensees and not Maker's Mark. And that was more than a year ago. It makes them look bad, period.And you'd have to question their convictions against the behavior if they don't take punitive action against the licensee. I can't believe their attorneys wouldn't include wording allowing them to do so in their contract.
cretinbob: To be fair, I didn't appreciate liquor until I was an adult. It all tasted the same in college.
Mutiny32: I hate racism.
Endive Wombat: Idiots
Fleet: I went to the distillery back in November with my girlfriend and her family. Got to taste the Maker's White that you can get only on site, and they ended the tour with bourbon chocolates which were delicious.The point to that story is I have a girlfriend.Honest.

What_Would_Jimi_Do: " we reserve the right to refuse to anyone. no matter who you are or think you are or who your daddy is "
God-is-a-Taco: Can't say I feel bad for Maker's Mark.
