Six dollar beers...

So last night the husband decided we should go out to dinner...so there we were at seven thirty at night in a restaurant sitting in the bar section (so he can watch sport and pretend to listen to what I say). So the next logical course of action would be to get a beer...do you have to drink if you are in the bar area...I think it is some unwritten rule...

Then suddenly one of my top ten biggest questions of all time sprang up and hit me in the butt...why the hell do restaurants never post the damn price of beer. Just in case you are thinking it is not on the regular menu but on the bar menu I looked both places...

So what is a girl to do about this great question...well look like cheap and ask the waiter how much it costs. Seriously if I am going to have to do this every time we go out to eat and avoid my husbands six dollar beer freak out (happened two weeks ago and an unnamed national restaurant) then I better grow thicker skin or start a petition...

So what do you think my dear one reader would you sign a petition with me to get the corporate heads to put the price of beer on the menu??

Sign me up! There is nothing worse than not knowing the price of something....remember my $12.00 a pot tea in Italy...and I had 2 pots!

I know exactly what you mean. Every time I go out to eat and want a drink I have to ask for the drink prices. I’m not a cheap skate (well maybe I am) but if I am going to pay $6.00 for a beer I would rather drink water and get a dessert instead. The restaurant would make the same amount of $$. But there is a good chance that there aren’t prices on their desserts either! On the other hand, if I am only paying $3.00 a beer and knew that I might just have two. It is all relative…. Just another way to get us to spend more money! Like we all have so much to spare They just raised our income tax and added a service tax here in Michigan….. there goes my beer moneyLOL
