Yes, the legend of the Chicken Hat lives on. Saturday night at midnight (Sunday morning) was Lisa's birthday! Lisa is one of the bartenders at the Lariat and, under protest, was forced to don the infamous 'Chicken Hat' in order to satisfy the wishes of a rowdy crowd demanding she wear the hat and do the chicken dance on her birthday!
I'm not sure when this ritual began, but it's been a tradition at 'The Rope' for many years and many celebrations. From birthdays to anniversaries, weddings, batchelor and batchelorette parties, the 'Chicken Hat' has adorned the heads of many an unsuspecting victim.
I believe Dan Jones or a friend of his first made the hat (this is probably the second or third reincarnation). It's good to know the celebration still continues and Lisa can be proud that she is just the latest in a long line of 'suckers' lured into testing this fowl weather gear. Congratulations Lisa and many more Happy Birthdays from the Lariat hen house!!
