Why does my macbook wig out? More details within.

I work at a bar, and when I have a slow shift, I take my macbook to work and do some non-bar work. After I've been working for a while, my computer will often glitch out in a very weird way. Suddenly I'll stop being able to use any of the menu functions in my programs and all the text starts appearing in unicode. When I reboot, my computer is fine. The only place this ever happens is at the bar I work at. It has an iron countertop, so I'm wondering if that has something to do with it. Or could it be something to do with the power outlet? Any ideas?
