One would think with that star deformity on his face, he could find work as "Mermaid Man" now that Ernest Borgnine is sleeping with the fishes.

Like this dude.

Surveillance video at the restaurant later revealed the dude swiped about $1,000 in booze, according to the report.

Seriously?  Again?  Alcohol is a plague on our society

One more thing in life I am doing wrong, avoiding jail, that is. Obviously I should be having more fun, and if that means a trip to the pokey two, three, or fifty times, what the heck. To be on a first name basis with the booking officers, maybe a "favorite" cell, good drug connections, comparing latest tattoo's, the list goes on and on.
I am such a square, if only I could free myself from the shackles of modern society.

When I hear words like 'eatery' I know someone is either trying too hard or not hard enough.

Also, 6 bottles of booze worth one-thousand dollars? It could have been an expensive cognac, but that sounds like cop math to me...

Street value: One million dollars!

Yeah, I'm sure they're basing it off the 300% markup that Red Mesa charges.  Their tequila prices are especially high there.

6 bottles of Booze for $1000.00 ?  I remember one time when my wife and I were in Las Vegas at a expensive restaurant in the Venetian and afterwords we went to their bar for a cocktail. There on the menu was a bottle of cognac for something like $90,000. I asked what was so special about that and the bartender spews some story about it was one of 10 bottles found in Napoleans private stash or some bullshiat. He said they have already sold 4 of the bottles. I looked at him and he looked at me and we both started smiling. So somewhere 4 rubes drank a bottle of $100 cognac poured into some old looking bottle and were out there somewhere bragging about drinking Napoleans cognac to their friends.  So yeah I'm sure for insurance purposes this restaurant is going to claim $1000.00 for their six bottles of booze.

Florida tag trumps all others usually but giving away free booze calls for the Hero tag

One ounce shot = approx. 30 ml
1 liter bottle = 33 shots
6 bottles = 198 shots
That's about $5 / shot / drink to equal $1k.

1.5 oz = 45ml
1l = 22 shots
6l = 132 shots
$7.60 / shot to get $1k.

Could be 750 ml bottles, I suppose.

Neither of the spirits listed in the article are anything but bottom(ish) shelf. Crappy bars are likely to dole out shots as ounces and $5 for a crappy shot isn't that rare of a thing. Last bar I worked at we sold 1½ oz shots of regular call liquors (Jack, José, Bacardi, Absolüt) for $5. I'm betting that the first scenario is likely in line with this bar's prices. Those prices aren't that far off base, especially if it's a touristy place. Of course, those are crappy liquors. If the guy stole some top shelf stuff it really wouldn't be hard to see 6 bottles equaling $1k in sales.

Prices do sound high, but not necessarily highway robbery high. At any rate: they're doing the cop math thing because they're not losing $1k, they're just losing whatever it costs them to replace the bottles. Boo hoo. If they play their cards right they'll get that much free publicity.

That bartender should be arrested.

In this town, when the winter shelter closes, guys do this all the time.
The want to go to jail to get food and shelter.

Six bottles of Seagrams? Since when does 6x$15.00 = $1000.00?  Replacement value, douche bags, not how much the god damned restaurant could make off one after markup.

tricycleracer: Great restaurant, BTW.


Seconded
