Drinking Establishment founded by Bruce H due to his fondness for gin and alcohol. Patrons can enjoy activities such as the gin excuse game (coming up with clever excuses that disguise their gin drinking habits) and bobbing for apples in gin, a past time that is revealed the next day when the individual comes into work with drops of gin coming out of his pores.
It is not uncommon to see patrons stumble out of this establishment at all hours of the night only to call out sick with a new excuse from the gin excuse game the following morning.
