The Shark Attack has been our most popular tropical drink since we first started serving them back in 2003. They've always come with a small blue or gray toy shark full of cherry juice, and either the customer or the bartender tips it into the drink to make a "shark attack."
For the past year or so, our toy shark supplier has had trouble keeping the sharks in stock. We try to always keep a backup box of sharks stored upstairs, but sometimes you people just drink so many Shark Attacks, we can't keep up!
Last week, the supplier was out of sharks and we were worried about getting through Homecoming weekend.
So, how popular are those drinks? Dave estimates he sold a couple hundred Shark Attacks this weekend. And we ended Saturday night with exactly two sharks left in the building.
Fortunately, more are on the way, so you Shark Attack addicts can keep enjoying them.
