I dont know how many people notices but two bartenders from maddies showed up at the highschool football game friday night and were handing out promo cards for the bar. It seemed a little tacky to say the least considering its a high school event. Thoughts?

Not even sure the school staff was aware and truly the girls looked trashy to make it worse...I'm sure at least one or two high school kids ended up with those cards. Maybe some one should inform the athletic director ?

I was there,saw it all.They were dressed like Skanks.A School event is no place to promote a bar.Very poor taste on the owners part.What were they thinking??? I also called the school & told them ,I didnt want my kids to see that again.YUK

My understanding is that maddies has been contacted and it shouldn't happen again....I'm glad! I truly agree that the town isn't run by a biker bar. I am disappointed that those girls didn't have enough sense to tell their boss it was in poor taste. Guess it speaks to their character, lord knows their clothes didn't(or maybe it did)

Maddies donated money to the school/football. They had no problem using it...... The promo cards were for food, we have a full family friendly restaurant as well as a bar, separated. We do not promote under age drinking nor serve to minors! Sorry, the establishment and the girls arent to everyones liking, but it was good enough to ask for a donation :) have a blessed day!

We are a local bar and grill that your kids from your high school come in and eat at. We handed out free food coupons for our restaurant not promo stuff to our bar. I was asked to put advertising in there foot ball schedule which I did by students that where eating at my establishment .also the girls I sent where not tacky they where dressed nice and one was my sister.

The only people we refuse to allow in our establishment is any U.S. Marine wearing any article of clothing identifying them as a Marine or supporting the U.S. Marine Corps.

A bar has no business handing out coupons at a high school event. I was told by a local minister that he was told that because JC is home rule a simply majority vote from the council can make JC dry. If its true, maybe the place to start cleaning up JC is to close up these bars.

I wad at the game and there is nothing wrong with a local business supporting ou school. There is a lo of steak houses that have bars within in the surrounding areas. Not one person said oh and by the way don't forget to get a drink from the bar. Ou school has sold certificates at auction fund raisers to other restaurants such as Tequilas. That in no way supports underage drinking or inappropriate behavior. For those who think so you might as well start burning and banning books as well. Maddies thank you for supporting JC Schools and do not allow the ignorance of others sway you into not supporting the schools.

This is why the schools sell adds to local businesses so the businesses can advertise and patrons aren't bombarded at events. As far as looking nice....that's up for opinion. The girls looked like they were going to a bar not a football game...they just look like white trash. Regardless what the cards were for a lot of the older patrons didn't appreciate it. And the principal got multiple complaints. How would you feel if multiple businesses handed stuff out at games? It would get old. Again this is why schools sell ads. It benefits both the school and the business.

I am upset that men and women who serve and protect our country are not allowed to be in uniform! THIS is what is wrong, not flyers at a school function!!
