Yeah, since 9:30 and Sonar seem to be getting alot of similar shows, I think I'll be choosing Sonar more often. Last time I was there I think I remember the prices being lower than 9:30's old prices.

One Black Cat bartender in particular tends to give me really strong mixed drinks in pint glasses    :eek:

 a couple solutions to consider, wait for the next 9:30 club gift card promotion,  which in the past has given more bang for one's buck with free bonus cards with purchase.  the gift cards can be used to buy tickets or beverages
 
 
That is a fantastic idea. I tried to get one and it was such a pain in the arse to get I just gave up.

Oh yeah, great idea. (Still) overpriced beer, after the freaking show is over.

 Apparently Yuengling is an import. I never understood that.

Moral of the story: 9:30 Club is always perfect, and should never be questioned.

eh, come on kosmo, i know you're being snarky, but we talk about all sorts of stupid shit on here, i think bitching about high beer prices (and they are pretty damn high) is a pretty valid complaint

uh it's like complaining about ticket prices and convience charges... if one doesn't like them don't pay them... last time i checked we live in a capitolistic system,  it's much easier to vote with the buck in the long run...

This just in:
 
   President Bush has issued a statement saying "If you drink less beer at the 930 Club, you will not have to worry so much about the rising price of alcoholic beverages"

Services charges are something you can't really get away from, but beer prices going up, especially to beyond normal levels, is definitely worth complaining about.
