When the two-for-ones have done the writer's block
The abundance of alcohol from the two-for-one drink specials give one the courage (or stupidity) to say whatever it was they wanted to say. It also conjures the image of someone sat alone at the bar texting while everyone else is having a good time.
Note the 3-2-1 pattern at the end, as though there’s a countdown to something happening.
