Hos? Who are Hos?

Hos (or Ho’s) aren’t really an official title. They’re more a term of endearment. Ho’s are people who come into “The Ho” regularly.

  • They’re people who came into Tolly-Ho so regularly they (we) had to get a job to support the habit. (Says the webmaster almost 20 years later)
  • Hos are people whose parents went to UK and brought them in as a rite of passage.
  • Hos are the families that come in on the weekends
  • They’re the high school friends that hang out after school
  • They’re the business people that have meetings over lunch
  • They’re the kind stranger that buys a homeless man hot breakfast
  • Hos are late-night customers that come in after the bars shut down
  • They are the 1pm breakfast crowd
  • Hos are people who work across the street and come in every day
  • Hos are people who live across the country and haven’t been here since college but still remember us fondly
  • Hos struggle in when ice storms paralyze the city
  • Hos keep Tolly-Ho alive when the city shuts down the street in front of the building we rent
  • Hos Party all night when UK Basketball wins the national championship

Hos are loyal customers and loyal employees.
