Recessioners Find Your Nearest Bah

It can't be a coincidence that there's a recent surge of alcohol and cigarette promotions at bars. Alcohol and cigarette companies must think a recession is the best time to boost marketing, because recently I've been racking up a ton of FREE stuff (and shots) at T's Pub, Sunset Cantina and White Horse.Clockwise from top left:
  1. Zippo lighter from Marlboro + my license scanned (aka identity stolen)
  2. Absolut Mango-flavored chapstick + 2 Absolut Mango shots
  3. Presidente bottle opener + 1 unfortunate shot of Presidente
  4. Malibu tank top + 1 Malibu coconut shot
The lighter and bottle opener is a clever way to boost product sales, but I would never smoke like a cowboy or buy Presidente because it tastes like urine. This post is dedicated to my good friend Larissa.

  1. Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigarettes? I'm buying my cigarettes over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 70% from cigs.
