The Sip 'n Dip Lounge: Mermaids!

Field review by the editors.

Great Falls, Montana

The O'Haire Motor Inn had been in Great Falls for years, and for just as long there had been a wall-size window from the Sip 'n Dip tiki bar into the motel's indoor swimming pool, apparently on the theory that drinkers liked to watch people in bathing suits.

It wasn't until New Year's Eve 1995 that the Sip 'n Dip manager and her mother convinced one of the housekeepers to put on a mermaid suit and splash around in the pool. She was a hit, and the mermaids -- there are now six -- have been regularly entertaining customers ever since.
