Cowboys Tailgate: The Bar Monkey

Today, I wanted to see who would already be tailgating at 9 a.m. for a 6 p.m. kickoff. After driving around the stadium a couple times to find the most-populated area, I decided on a grass lot on Duck St. near Hall of Fame. That’s when I met Dan and Matt Hensley, Kevin Noel and Brian Pfenniger.

Let me introduce you to the Bar Monkey.

The contraption, inside a trailer, features 32 drink varieties, including alcohol, soda and other mixers. Which means it can make 806 possible drink combinations.
