Not so happy for some
The Draft Bar in Huntsville has daily specials, and catchy names to go along with them.

Including  "WB Wednesdays." When resident Arthur Guerrero recently asked what the "WB" stood for, television station KBTX reports, he found out it wasn't "Warner Bros."

It's Wetback Wednesdays, and the bar doesn't see anything wrong with it.

"Our response to them is that this is all in fun. We don't put it up there to be derogatory or racist," bar manager Dena Shipley told the station.

And she meant it:

"We are not going to be persuaded by someone else's opinion or views or moral values. We have the right to put up whatever we want on our board," responded Shipley. "Are we going to change things at this point? No, we're not. We're going to continue doing business just like we always have."
What do you get on Wetback Wednesdays, besides a heapin' helpin' of racism? Specials on magaritas and Dos Equis. Yay!
