If You Believe All The Hype

What a Wednesday! Two for one well drinks. $2 off call drinks. DJ Takai at 10PM.


If you believe all the hype, no matter how you slice it, Mercury Retrograde is terrible for just about everyone.

May your Mercury be
more “Freddy,” and
less “retrograde!”

Mercury goes “backwards” tomorrow, March 22nd. This leaves us a small window to enjoy the calm before the storm. Today! 2-4-1 well cocktails. $2 off call drinks. Tonight! DJ Takai at 10PM.

Most of us know by now, Mercury Retrograde means trivial breakdowns in communication and technology, and basically overall awfulness until it ends on April 15th.

How to survive without a major confrontation or battle?

Find comfort in your routine (daily trips to Bacchus? Stage & Screen Night and other events?)

Don’t start anything new. Focus on activities that start with the prefix “re-,” which means to go back. Review all your contracts before you sign. Renew your commitments, rather than making new ones. Prepare to repeat yourself often. Reunite with old friends, redecorate a room, rekindle a romance.

Do read things thoroughly and leave lots of time before your deadlines/appointments/flights. The potential for miscommunication is high, so when the Uber driver who’s supposed to be taking you to Waipahu takes you to Waimanalo, you'll have time to readjust.

Don’t fly off the handle or jump to conclusions if someone misunderstands you. Chances are you're the one mis-communicating or being misheard. Keeping calm will ensure that you come out on top of any disagreement.

Mercury Retrograde can be super annoying, but knowing what’s coming is half the battle. If we have an idea of what we’re up against, then we can try to weather the next three weeks as best we can.

At Bacchus, we got this. Come visit us and let us soothe you during this seemingly terrible time. ;-) 2-4-1 cocktails today and tonight. DJ Takai at 10PM. No cover. Ever.
