If the words 'psycho calamari hosebeast' mean nothing to you, you should get off my lawn immediately.

This idea sounds AWESOME.

I get to stay on your lawn, because I remember that thread (TF). It's in my legendary threads bookmark folder.

It's forced into pagination, CTRL-F for calamari picks up on 10.

On an unrelated note, the "Prepare for the BUTTSECKS" picture the_rev posted on page 3 comes from a photo I took at the FARK THE FALLS Niagra Fark Party... which means in Fark years, I'm somewhere around 100.

That's NYC prices. Even Applebee's is more expensive.

People keep on telling me about this bar in London that does this, but I have still to go there.

Someone OOOOOOOLD wrote that headline.
 
2010-03-25 12:56:01 PM  
Why not?
 
2010-03-25 12:56:52 PM  
Ah hell, a friend of mine had this idea at least 5 years ago. Guess he should have filed a business method patent on it.
 
2010-03-25 12:57:32 PM  
Good thingthey put a $4 floor on the beer price, otherwise he'd be paying us to drink his Budweiser.
 
2010-03-25 12:57:44 PM  
Hmmm, interesting idea.
 
2010-03-25 12:58:32 PM  
Stocks haven't been quoted in fractions for years, but still a funny headline.

business method patent - is that doable?

I would short their restaurant.

A bar here in Madison does that with the beer once a week or so. It's fun, I guess.
 
2010-03-25 01:02:30 PM  
There's a bar in Berlin that did this. Visited in '01 -- good times.
 
2010-03-25 01:03:08 PM  
There's a bar in (I think) Thailand that has been doing this since 1999. Great idea, and I honestly think that variable pricing like this could effectively be applied to all sorts of businesses and products.

$6 for a glass of Guinness? What the fark.
 
2010-03-25 01:04:19 PM  
DRTFA; my first impression was this headline was somehow related to D&D.

And $6 for a Guinness? Screw that, I can get a six pack for about that much...

I wonder what's the price on frozen concentrated orange juice.

How much for Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice?

Let the Free Markets decide that!

So when do I get my bailout for this place?

I'll hook y'all up with some insider information.

And yes, those are average Manhattan prices. It's a pricey night out, but always fun.
 
2010-03-25 01:09:43 PM  
I've lived in NYC since I was 21, so these prices seem pretty good to me.

How much does a pint of Guinness cost everywhere else? I'm genuinely curious.
 
2010-03-25 01:11:47 PM  
I'm stealing that idea. What an awesome way to ensure you go through stock.
 
2010-03-25 01:11:48 PM  
I'm still trying to figure out wtf the last entry is on the price ticker.

Seen it go for 6 bucks in Jackson, Miss. Seen it go for 4 in south Texas for the 23oz draft

$2 in my 2 bit college town on specials night. Go Urbana and being in the middle of nowhere!

Most frequently heard sentence in the restaurant:

"Once again the conservative sandwich-heavy portfolio pays of for the hungry investor!"

And then they throw whoever said it, out on their bum.

It's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to short sell bar food.

You live in Austin, though. I live in D.C. and it costs almost as much to drink here as it does in NYC.

Food is a bit cheaper here, though.

$9 in the Tokyo Suburbs, closer to $12 in the city.

But sodas are the real kicker: the average restaurant (think Applebee's type) charges about $4 for a Coke. In a small glass. With ice. And no refills.

By the way, I've never been drunker or been able to drink for less money than when I visited my friend at the University of Delaware.

And yet, somehow, a good friend of mine managed to spend $150 at Grotto when he went back.

A yard for $4 at our local Irish pub.

\Moylan's Dragoons is better.

It's got to be - I can't come up with anything initialed B R.

Step 1) Have a friend take you out for a meal at the Exchange B&G
Step 2) While waiting in line tweet "OMFG jst 8 @XCHNGE B&G, violently ill @hosptl :( :( :("
Step 3) Order a burger, milkshake and fries on your friend's dime
Step 4) When the meal arrives, sell it to some chump waiting in line to order for full price
Step 5) Wait for the restaurant to empty out and pig out at a discounted rate.

There, you just spent who knows how much time and effort and defeated all sorts of statistical improbabilities to make a few dollars profit . You are a true master of money markets

PZZA is the NASDAQ abbreviation for Papa John's.

This is bulls***. I had this idea 12 years ago.

Too bad I have no capital.

A YARD of Guinness? Arthur is spinning in his grave.

You'd be beaten to death if you tried serve it in anything other than a pint or half pint glass here.

A pint is between €4 and €5 here in Dublin (depending on pub and time of night)

Amazon and their "one click ordering patent" sure like to think so
