A curious sign is taped to the mirror behind the bar at Greenwich Village's historic White Horse Tavern.
No, not the one that says you have to be 25 to enter, though that's odd enough. (Of legal drinking age? Tough! Come back in four years.) Or the one that says intoxicated persons will not be served. (Do they stop taking orders from customers after a person has had two beers?)
Rather, the one that says, "To all employees: Jim has no friends or family. Be suspicious of anyone claiming otherwise."
The bartender wouldn't explain the note. He only said, "Nobody misses that sign!" He then took an order from a waitress and said, "Jesus! Who orders Bloody Marys at night!?"
