Holly Dagger

Hey there! I'm Holly Dagger from afternoon on 99.1 The Whale! I'm originally from Syracuse so I'm used to tons of snow and of course I'm a big Syracuse Orangemen fan. I love all different kinds of rock music from Led Zeppelin to Tool to Lettuce! I've been a dancer for over 20 years and I'll let you decide if that's a ballerina or a stripper kind of dancer....either way, I know how to have a good time! I tend to get a little crazy sometimes and often get into some odd situations as a result but my motto is - No Regrets! Listen to me weekdays from 3-7pm during the Holly Dagger Happy Hour on 99.1 The Whale!

They have vegan and vegetarian options which is perfect for someone like me who isn't a huge fan of meat but don't worry, they have plenty of options with meat in them as well!

To start, I ordered the tomato basil soup which I was informed was made fresh this morning and my guest had a salad with white balsamic vinaigrette (which he claimed was "his favorite part of the meal")

Holly Dagger’s Friends Are Spoiled

It was one of my good friends birthdays last week. Seeing as I don't have a boyfriend to spoil at the moment, my friends get even more attention than they would normally.

The man wanted a chocolate mayonnaise cake with peanut butter frosting so that's what he got! Of course I also made birthday cake shots and bought said individual a present of Crown Royal Maple
