Bar "buy backs" [moved from Boston board]

At the risk of repeating myself...

Authorized comps over the tax deductible 5% and unauthorized "buy backs", to observe this see if the bartender enters your "buy back" into the POS system, drive up prices for the legitimate clientele.

Having said that...I agree with MC that many so-called "cocktail programs" are laughable.
