Here we have Uncle Fatty’s Rum Resort, a privately owned establishment, that wanted to show some patriotism and celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden. Sadly, they have now had to recant and apologize for fear that they would be offending someone (Muslims).
I wish they would had held the party anyway, but I understand his logic, because once the MSM gets hold of his story and put their own spin on it, then business for him goes into the crapper.
Well, if nothing else….we get a new drink recipe out of it.
Osama Been Shot - a blood red shooter made with vodka and grenadine
A local Chicago bar apologized, Wednesday for a party they had planned to celebrate the killing of Osama Bin Laden
Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort received plenty of flack for their planned celebration, which was set to take place on Friday and was described as "bursting with American pride."
According to a Monday news release, The "Osama bin Laden Is Rot'n" bash offered free entry to guests wearing clothing sporting American "swagger," and was to offer specialty cocktails like "The Floating Terrorist" and "Osama Been Shot" -- a blood red shooter made with vodka and grenadine.
On Wednesday, the bar retracted the theme, issuing an apology through its public relations firm after realizing that some people were offended by the idea behind the party.
"Our intention was never to offend anyone," says a representative of Uncle Fatty's.

We have pushed the envelope in the past by hosting parties with irreverent themes, but we now recognize that this was perceived as inappropriate."Read more at the Source: http://www.nbcchicago.com/the-scene/events/121265934.html#ixzz1LVIOCIDn
