Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
A cocktail napkin is a simple bar accessory. It’s there to absorb condensation, act as a temporary, disposable drink coaster, serve up snacks and hor d'oeuvres, and keep scrapes and scratches off the bar top. So, most of the time, the napkins are very simple in appearance; usually one single color without illustrations or writing. KegWorks saw an opportunity to have a little fun with them - so they’ve come up with six humorous, yet still simple designs for different cocktail napkins.
The first is the Dear Cab Driver Cocktail Napkin. The napkin reads “Dear Cab Driver, Please take me home to:” with an empty space for an address. Below is the line, “Look for cash in:” with a series of options and a check box beneath. Some of the options include, “my bag,” “my skirt,” and “my boxer shorts.”
Speaking on the Cab Driver Napkins, David Rivers, KegWorks President and Minister of Culture, said, “When we concepted these napkins, we knew we wanted something funny that served an actual purpose as well. They're definitely humorous, but they also encourage people not to drive after one too many drinks.”
Another original KegWorks design is the IITYWIMWYBMAD? napkin. This extra-long acronym is displayed on the front of the napkin, with the description on the back, reading, “If I Tell You What It Means Will You Buy Me A Drink?” Speaking on these napkins, Rivers said, “It’s a great way to get your customers talking with the bartender, and it sparks some lively conversations among friends at the bar together. It’s also a foolproof method for getting free drinks.”
Most recently, KegWorks came out with a series of four new cocktail napkins, each targeted at a different kind of drink - beer, rocks cocktails, wine, and martinis. Each napkin features a simple illustration of the drink, accompanied by a short, punchy line, including “Beer me,” “On the rocks,” “Pour the good stuff,” and “I like it dirty.”
“They definitely have some attitude, but they’re still very simple and elegant,” says Trisha Charles, Director of Marketing and Product Development at KegWorks. “They add something extra for those who like to entertain. I personally can’t wait to use them at my holiday party this year. Of course, they work wonderfully in a bar setting as well.”
