Drink Dirty

Bar offers cheap drinks, encourages sex talk.


Elizabeth Norton is embarrassed to say what she orders at the Mussel Beach & Cheap Sex Party on Thursday nights. "I can't tell you," she says. "The name is too raunchy. In fact, I can't even pronounce it."

Right. Does Grass-Stained Knees ring a bell? It's one of the $3 "sex shots" served with $3.79 bowls of steamed mussels. Norton's fave cocktail is a blend of Southern Comfort, blue curaçao, Midori, peach schnapps, and OJ. "It's not like I enjoy telling the bartender that's what I want," says Norton. "But I'd feel more like a fool if I said I was dying for a Pop the Cherry or Ménage à Trois." Drink up from 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. at Pepper Joe's, 24532 Lorain Road in North Olmsted. Admission is free; call 440-979-1400.
Thursdays, 7 p.m.-2:30 a.m., 2006
