...When a newcomer to the bar sits down next to you at the bar and the staff say to him/her, "You don't want to sit there if you have any intention of leaving the place less than shit-faced."

Good one. I've only had a few moments where I've realized how much of a "regular" I am.
1- The staff offered to put a "Reserved" sign on my table at 9pm on days I come in.
2- When I see my bartenders at another bar they start buying me drinks.
3- A barback told me they've had to increase thier stock of Rolling Rock because of me.
4- A bar started carrying Knob Creek because of me.
All actual occurances.

When I've been really broke and was unable to go to my regular saloon for a week or so, I've been told when I finally showed, "we thought you died."

When you got a table on jackass Tuesdays (2-4-1 night), back when the Triple Rock had a patio.

Actually we set up a rotating stammtisch, with some purloined and decorated "Reserved" signs that we brought everywhere with us. I'm too lazy to give my own explanation but:
Stammtisch is a custom in German speaking countries and is a table reserved for regular guests of that establishment. Tables are usually marked with a pennant so other guests won’t sit there unless invited.
Actually in Bavaria they're usually marked with a sign and maybe one of those blue and white diamond-checkered tablecloths.

When they hire a new bartender and I have to tell them where things are and answer questions about the price of various drinks. Funny how the prices on my stuff is just a little lower than the others....for a day or three.
If you were my midget, I'd treat you like a princess.
