Fluffy Cloud Cows come to Japan

June 5, 2013


fluffy cloud cow

In honor of the fluffy cloud cows, the cows at the Moooo! Bar in Japan are inviting all the fluffy cows of the world to float in for free drinks! Of course, cows always drink for free a the Moooo! Bar, but the fluffy cloud cows can enjoy the “world’s first bar for cows” twice as much with free double Moogaritas and double Pina Mooladas all day long.

The Moooo! Bar on the beach on Shiraishi Island (Okayama, Japan) opens June 30 this year.
