Speaking of Ruby Tuesday, they don't offer a house wine. You must pay $8 for a decent glass. Do love the salad bar, though.

BTW, I quit beer 30 years ago. Gives me a headache.

This is sooooooo true as my father owned a luncheonnette business and he said all the profit came from making cokes for a fraction of a penny and charging 5 or 10 cents.

Times have changed but the game is the same.

We were at Magic Kingdom and sat near a table of 4 adults and 2 kids.
They got 1 burger and then went to the "fixins" table and got lettuce, mayo, pickle relish and ketchup and different kinds of mushrooms etc. and "made" lunch.

I doubt if they were "financially challenged" since it costs $89 per person to get into Disney World for 1 day.

Anyone that can complain so loudly about the cost of what they buy have never been the retailer trying to make a living.

Default Gotta Take Advantage of Happy Hours

First thing I ask: "Are you on happy hour?". If "yes", rum and diet and vodka and tonic for the wife. If not, "How much for your draft beer?" Be careful. Draft beer can surprise you: Red Lobster charged me $9 for two 10-oz draft Bud Lights one time. Never been back.

Went to Glenview CC last Wednesday, instead of Beef's. (Couldn't get served in Beef's in Southern Trace, our regular Wednesday night spot.) Tab was $36.85:
  • 3 bar-liquor cocktails @ $4.59 = $13.77
  • 1 serving of chicken fingers (large portion) = $8.99
  • 2 small salads @ $3.50 = $7
  • Tax = $2.09
  • Tip = $5
  • Total = $36.85

My point: Alcohol, especially cocktails, non-happy hour, is expensive. Be prepared. Service was good and ambience much better than Beef's. Cost about $10 more than a couple of Beef's sandwiches/salads and 4-10 oz drafts. Beef's is still our favorite regular place. Nice servers, but too few. They almost run from one table to the next. Leave off the alcohol...if you can. I prefer not.

Default offset pricing

The food prices are pretty reasonable in my opinion, which kind of makes up for the prices of the pitcher. Some of our friends met us at Codys for food and drinks. The total tab wasn't that bad considering what some other places we've visited came up too. Next time I will get a designated driver and drink my beer before I leave.

I found out that after 3 or 4 pitchers of beer, I have a headache the next morning also.

We had lunch yesterday and enjoyed it. We forgot to tell the waitress we would share a 2 for 1 beer but got through our 4 pints of beer anyway although we were sluggish in the afternoon.

Not sure about Cody's pitcher price but last week at Bonifay before 5P we were charged $7.00 for a pitcher during Happy Hour.

Now that seems reasonable enough but then what is the price after happy hour; $14.00???
