A lot of restaurants have promotions, but few have a special involving facial hair.
Clubhouse Sports Cafe bartender Mike Parris currently sports "Wolverine" sideburns, much like Rays designated hitter Luke Scott. The eye-catching chops are reminiscent of the facial features sported by actor Hugh Jackman's Wolverine character in the X-Men series.
Parris not only looks the part, there's a bonus. If you are sitting at the bar in the Seffner restaurant when Parris is working and Scott homers, you get a free Bud Select.
It's not a casual offer given that business has picked up with the Rays' success. Parris said he's also pushing the nickname "Seffner Slugger" for Rays outfielder Matt Joyce. Joyce played at North Brandon Little League just up the street from the restaurant on Kingsway Avenue, and the restaurant is considering adding a Seffner Slugger salad to the menu.
The Clubhouse is at 1265 Kingsway Road.
