Day Bar

I thought I’d also take this opportunity to tell you about a little treat called “Day-bar.” At any given point in the season there are probably about 100-200 people working the night shift and thankfully the recreation department tries to make sure we still get to have a little fun. A couple of mornings each week they open one of the bars for us and call it Day-bar (morning is like our night). The nighttime bar scene here gets a little crazy and Day-bar just gets, well, weird. If you go to day-bar and then manage to stay up until noon you can go to the galley while they day workers are taking their lunch break and your ending your “night” of fun. It’s quite amusing – for all parties involved. Last month, my department (ATO represent!) decided to have a gym theme for day-bar – we all dressed up in whacky gym-inspired outfits and did karaoke. Our night-shift supervisor walked around with a whistle and ordered us to do push-ups and jumping jacks periodically throughout the night, well actually the morning, but you know what I mean. You just can’t make this stuff up.
