“It’s every guy’s dream,” says Jason Bailey, a partner in O’Neill’s Irish Pub. “We are in Guy Heaven.”
The topic was Table Tap, an innovative way to get cold beer from the refrigerator to the table at O’Neill’s on Richmond Road in Lexington.
Instead of a server carrying pitchers, a beer tap connected by plastic tubing to a keg in the bar’s walk-in refrigerator is at the customer’s table.
As each fresh glass of beer is poured, a meter embedded in the table registers the amount and the charge for each ounce, which depends on the brand of beer.
“It’s just like paying for gasoline, except we charge by the ounce instead of the gallon,” Bailey said.
The tab can later be divided among the people at the table.
“It was just so super-neat, we had to try it here,” he said. “Every guy has thought of (inventing) this.”

Here is a really interesting story from a reader.
Joe White rarely buys his own lottery ticket. Instead, he relies on other people to do it for him. “People throw money away all the time,“ said White. Day after day he spends hours sifting through discarded lottery tickets. “Might as well just go get some tickets and enter them online,“ said White. White knows what many don’t know. Every instant lottery ticket is eligible to be re-entered on http://www.tnlottery.com for another cash prize.
On any given day there could be up to 80 discarded lottery tickets in the lottery ticket trash bin at Ravi Patel’s 7 Star Stop in Johnson City. White goes around to about 7 convenience stores every day, which means he has the potential of getting over 500 tickets a day. “I’ve got four shoe boxes full on one day,“ said White.

This is something that you don’t see everyday. The driver wasn’t injured, it just made for an amazing scene.
Emergency crews in a ladder truck made a dramatic rescue Wednesday morning after a dump truck got stuck standing on its end with the driver inside.
The dump truck was left standing on its rear end with the driver suspended in the air inside the truck’s cab, officials said. The driver was pulled to safety by rescue crews in a ladder truck.
The truck remained vertical for about an hour after the driver’s rescue, and was leaning against a road sign. Officials said they had to assess the stability of the truck before moving it.
The driver was uninjured in the incident, but officials described him as “shaken up.”
