Is free really worth it? A definite maybe.
The sadness, or expense, or saving grace, of living in a liquor controlled state like Oregon. The NYT online reports that a website called myopenbar.com lists bars that are serving free drinks in New York City. According to the story, "The site also has listings for five other cities (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and Honolulu)". Are times really so hard you would want to drink with a 23-year-old who is quoted at a Drambuie giveaway as saying “Normally I could not afford this fine liqueur,” she said, taking a sip of a Drambuie fizz." Fine liqueur? Drambuie fizz?? Frat boys and toilet huggers rejoice! The question remains: Is free Drambuie better than none at all? As an experienced liver just reported to me, the answer is defintely the latter!
