Like everywhere else on the planet zombies are both loved and loathed. They’re intriguing, disgusting, and inherently dangerous. Well the fictional ones are anyways, but Daddy Mac’s in Henderson believes otherwise when they were tired of accommodating the living dead at Cosmic Comics “The Walking Dead” viewing party.
For the past two weeks, geeks, nerds and zombie aficionado’s have been showing up to watch their favorite zombie drama only to get slow service and standard definition (first world problems). Daddy Mac’s had underestimated the large zombie community and has now probably lost a large portion of revenue on Sunday nights. With some TV’s unable to broadcast the show, bartenders unaware of the drink specials, and a short staffed kitchen unable to make simple nachos in a timely fashion has led me to look elsewhere for my Walking Dead viewing pleasure. Understandably new things can come with rough starts, but with Daddy Mac’s kicking us out not more than 15 minutes after the show, then reportedly kicking the rest of the zombies out of their parking lot is absurd. What, a zombie can’t roam around freely anymore?
I’m not boycotting Daddy Mac’s but after last nights debacle with their paying patrons has left a bad taste in my mouth. I can’t see myself going there anymore, even if their Daddy Mac Ale is Miller High Life, the champagne of beers.
On a happier note my buddy Joel from Nerd Junkies won himself a “The Walking Dead” prize pack from Cosmic Comics at last nights viewing party raffle. I of course helped myself to a shameless photobomb to ensure the survival of my species. I don’t even care if that didn’t make sense.
