Meat Raffles? On Wednesday’s?

ChicagoCindy submitted this photo of a sign she

…saw in a bar in the very small town of Afton, Wisconsin. I can attempt to forgive the inclusion of an apostrophe in “WEDNESDAY’S”, but to then exclude the apostrophe in “WEEKS” is unforgivable. And WTF are “Meat Raffles”?!

Afton is actually in Minnesota. Meat raffles are popular here at bars in Minnesota. It’s exactly as the name implies; you buy a ticket, they draw a ticket number, and if it’s your number you win the prize: meat. It’s usually steak, lobster, or shrimp. Expensive stuff regular people can’t afford to buy very often.

I don’t think that possession was the intent. It seems that the message was meant to mean ever Wednesday. That would mean that it needed to say “Wednesdays.”

“Wednesday’s” could easily be used as possessive in that sentence. There’s nothing wrong with the apostrophe there.
