At first, she and teh other female bartenders dancing atop the bar counter was a one-off, a joke, but when it causes carloads of patrons to show up, Mallory sees the potential in terms of large dollar signs. She thinks all lights are flashing green and all signs read Go. Little does she know aboutthe guy who's got his eye on her...

Family means a lot to Shay -- he's the third generation to run O'Connor's. Little does he know, however, that Mallory already plans to bed him!
