The $7 Bass Beer
I went out this weekend. I went out downtown Chicago. I went out at some bar called Rockit. Upon entering I was happy to see they had Bass on tap. It's been awhile guys. A real long time since I've had Bass from the keg. Sure I've had it in bottles, and I've had all manner of other beers in kegs, but nothing really compares to Bass from the tap.

So SUCCESS! I'm out and I've got my favorite drink and all is right with the world...until I get the bill (for the record, they did not have prices ON the menu).
"7?!" I said to the bartender, handing her a 20 dollar bill. She just sorta shrugged and looked at me like I had just spit in her eye.
So she hand's me back 13, and I think about it, and decide that you tip for good service. And getting the stink eye is not really good service. I also came to the conclusion that if you charge me the same amount for one pint as I can get a 6-pack, you have already included your tip in that price.
So in an effort to save some cash, I switched to Bud light, the cheapest looking beer on there. How much for a bottle of Bud Light? Go ahead...guess. I'll wait.
Other than that, it was a pleasant evening, capped off with a cab ride home with Pete, Divya and her sister. The whole ride home the cabbie was lecturing me on the cost to clean the cab if anyone puked and kept making me reassure him that everyone was "ok to ride."
The girl on the ground is what Divya looked like (she was the birthday girl after all) and the girl standing up is what Pete looked like...minus the heels and dress, and plus nice shoes, pants and a nice button-up.
