I was in an upscale lounge in the Lower East Side (of Manhattan) for an engagement party. The place was rented out for a few hours. Place known for its Vietnamese style mixed drinks. I figured, when in rome...and had a couple of them, without thinking of alternatives--I didn't really know what was free at bar, and everyone seemed to be drinking crappy beers, so I figured good stuff wasn't free.
Of course, at the very end of the night, when open bar was no longer available, I notice one guy drinking scotch.
What are you drinking?
How much for a shot?
It was free, dummy.
