How do you make "happy hour" even happier? You make it five hours long.

The Evansville franchise of Firehouse Subs, located on Green River Road across from Eastland Mall near the intersection of Vogel Road and Green River, recently installed what appears to be the crown jewel of soft drink fountain machines, the Coca-Cola Freestyle Fountain (pictured, left).

Look at that thing. It's a soda-lovers wildest dream come true! According to the press released I received, it features "120+ beverage brands, including 60 diet and low calorie options and 65 caffeine free choices [it] allows for endless drink combinations. Choices include brands such as caffeine-free Diet Coke® with Lime, Fanta® Peach, Minute Maid® Light Orange Lemonade, Firehouse Subs’ exclusive Cherry Lime-Aid® and more".

To celebrate the installation of this soda pop wonder, Firehouse Subs wants you to stop by and try it for FREE on Labor Day! Stop by for happy hour between 4-9pm on Monday, September 3rd for free drinks and to play mad scientist by mixing different combos to find your favorite. And grab a bite to eat while you're there as well. I've been a couple of times now and the sandwiches are awesome. I recommend the Hook & Ladder, Italian, or Firehouse Hero with a bag of Funyons on the side, and a icy cold cup of Cherry Lime-Aid.
