IRQ12: offmymeds: [www.nypost.com image 299x300]Walk in to this guy's bar and with a straight face say "I'd like a Sterno '85 with a NyQuil chaser, my good man."/hilarity will ensueLook, baby still has his training wheels on! How artisanal!(no self respecting bartender uses a jigger unless absolutely required to)
Strongbeerrules: Okay, so who's snubbing who here?
HotWingConspiracy: Z-clipped: It's that you only came to their establishment in the first place because you heard it was hip and trendyWhy would you assume that? I wander in to places I've never heard of all the time when I'm in the city, and I'm not even a tourist.
Soupysales: OFFENDING DRINK: The Long Island iced tea is "pure gluttony," says Ward. Ordering one "is admitting that you want as much booze as possible, without a conception of what it is."APPROVED DRINK: "If you want to get bombed right away, order a zombie," he says. "It's boozier than a Long Island iced tea and really delicious."I don't get why one is acceptable and the other isn't. If this guy actually exists, I hope his urethra gets infested with spiders.
HotWingConspiracy: Eh, every shiatheel working a job a robot can perform likes to inflate their skills and importance.I once asked a bartender at a spot that only serves faux artsy booze if he ever considered that nobody buys or carries it because it sucks. He was confident is was just because people are stupid. That said, he swore his angle was more of helping local small time players emerge and get exposure.
eViLpOpTaRt: 8. You DO tip the mixologist and the server!.
Shadow Blasko: magneticmushroom: Shadow Blasko: [questionablecontent.net image 600x1418]/Basically anyone could post about 500 of QC's 2400 comics in this thread..Even Jeph Jacques says he'd have a hard time being friends with Faye. I wouldn't want her serving me coffee either. Raven, please.Faye reminds me a LOT of some of my Southern friends who are generally broken, but I think I would much rather hang with Hanners. I have experience in dealing with those variety of neuroses.To date? probably none of them... *maybe* Marbear, if Momo and I could get her to clean her act up.
thamike: Seriously, shouldn't she be in Santa Monica?
Yogimus: doglover: [www.nypost.com image 300x300]Shea Berry says she got snubbed for ordering a vodka martini at Prime Meats.There's so much wrong with this.... I can't be on her side.Let's start with the 40-something dressing like a 20-something and doing the teenager duckface.
cptjeff: is like going into Chez Paul in Jorts and trying to order pop tarts. Don't.
alienated: Next you will be calling me a n00b for liking grey goose and Hawaiian Punch ...
sycraft: Alcohol snobs are always some of the funniest people to me. I've never got why it matters so much to them if people's taste in booze differs from theirs. To me, it seems like they really aren't all that secure in their tastes. Any time someone brings something different from what they want they perceive it as a challenge to what they like. They worry that they might be having the "wrong" drink.Something tells me no establishment to does this will survive for all that long. Whatever snobby crowd it attracts will move on when suddenly what the bar is doing is uncool.
factoryconnection: Knowing how I feel when people request really banal, played-out covers at gigs, I'd feel the same way these c*nty bartenders do. However, because I like keeping a party (and tips) going, I'll play their stupid request for "Blister in the Sun" with a smile and some joking around.Would they sh*t on me for asking for bourbon with a twist of lemon? Probably but that is freaking good.
