Ten Dollar Beer!
We went to the great Madison Square Garden to see the even greater Neil Young the other night. As usual, I was pretty thirsty when we got there, having traveled an hour and a half through some terrible snow/sleet/ice road conditions. So, I was ready to pay what was necessary for a brew. Well, it turns out that the beers are $9.25! At first glance, that is a complete outrage - but there are 2 points that make it hurt not as much. First, the beers are actually 22ozs, which is close to 2 actual beers. Second, the beer selection was great. They had Anchor Steam, Smithwick's, Guinness, Harp, etc. A truly great selection, and a price on par for NYC. So, it made it not that bad. I guess we can rationalize anything when thirsty.
