Make It One For My Baby, And One More For The Road

Another party on a Tuesday night, and no DUI stops!

How fitting. Soon to be former councilwoman Ms. Jan Flory, one of the principal architects and mother hen of downtown Fullerton’s out-of-control culture of vodka. vomit and vehicular mayhem, is tossing herself a going away party. And naturally it’s at one of Fullerton’s fine dining establishments bars.

Here’s the outreach:

 Good morning!

 As you know, the new council will be seated on 12/13/16 at 6:30 p.m.  Would you pls get the word out that I will be having a soiree at Joe’s Bar and Grill after that council meeting.  I’ll have appetizers and a no-host bar to celebrate my leaving the council.  That doesn’t sound right, but it will be better than a funeral.  People will probably start showing up between 7:30 and 8. 

 Thanks a bunch and thank you for keeping so many people informed. 

 Jan Flory


You would think a Fullerton City Councilperson would be a little reluctant to have a political party at a downtown saloon given what happened the last time this occurred – five scant weeks ago.

Sappy McTree, We Hardly Knew Ye…

You’ve got to love the message of the “soiree”:

I’ll have appetizers and a no-host bar to celebrate my leaving the council.” 

Auld lang syne…

Maybe Flory figures if you have to buy your own drinks you’ll be a lot less likely to get drunk, drive off the road on the way home and require the interim police chief to cover up the whole mess.

We probably won’t be there, but we’ll be celebrating, too.

    Cause for celebration indeed. I wonder if the FPD will be told to turn off the body cams Tuesday night.

      The secret passcode is “I need to call Chief Danny.”

    At 10:00 the party moves up to Paul Dudley’s house. Please select a designated driver. And bring your own bottle.

    A classy place for a classy lady. Do they still sell alligator sandwiches?

      It’s actually called Joe’s No Limits! Bar & Grill and they serve a mean dog.

      They probably HAD to have the going away party for Jan Flory at Joe’s Bar and Grill, as they are the only place around that will serve rattlesnake ; – )

    A rendezvous-soirée. Jubilee supper with canapés served on handcrafted serviettes, complemented with Cabernet Sauvignon. And the ceremonial grand finale: the guillotine!

      Honestly, the only holiday party worth going to.

    FFFF Pop Quiz:
    1.) Will Joe Felz be there?
    2.) How many drinks will he have?
    3.) Will he drive himself home after?
    4.) Will he have a police escort?

    Beer Pong! Flory versus the house!

    If i were the FPD, I’d be all over this party. just imagine the windfall come collective bargaining time bagging yourself Mr. & Mrs. Fitzgerald, or maybe even Joe Felz again!

    I say people show up wearing tree branches on their lapels. Sappy McTree, RIP.

      How about a green ribbon?

  10. #16 by Joe FelzGood on December 12, 2016

    I will be there. I plan on drinking all day today and tomorrow and then hitting this bash to celebrate my retirement. I’ll buy all your FFFF klan drinks with my retirement check. You realize just my time on the books is worth $200,000? The city writes me a check for that and that has nothing to do with my retirement. Plus my severance package due to leaving early, and then my retirement. Does it get any better than this? DannyBoy said he will hire me right away to watch Mickey too. Life is good.

      Never stop dreaming.

        Be sure to take Sappy McTree with you. Maybe he can be transplanted on Main Street, LOL!

    • #19 by Barry Coffman on December 12, 2016

      You’ll need to start early if you’re gonna hang with Felz and Flory, lol!

      We could put a hundred cops around there but it would be like swatting flies!

    If Flory is the mother hen of the barforama, then Fitzgerald is the fox guarding the hen house. It will be fun to watch her disavow Popoff and the rest of the douche bags as soon as she tries running for her next office.
