How Much Would You Pay...

I need to take an informal poll, and hope Rocks allows this. Forgive the simplicity of the scenario:

You walk in to a modestly appointed bar in Washington DC. The drink order is two Jack and Cokes, two glasses of Pinot grigio.

What should your bill come to, including tax?

So....say...$53.90 would sort of, take your breath away?
Yes. I'm guessing that the pinot grigio was $13/glass or so? Ugh.

Note, I don't have any problem paying $13/glass of wine that I enjoy, is unique, or otherwise different, but the "modestly appointed" line in your first post leads me to believe that you're getting a pretty standard wine.

leading on the fact that drinking pinot grigio is burning a whole in your pocket, so the possible idea of switching to a varietal with a little more pizz-azz would make that 53.90 seem a little more worth your wild. other point being, drinking 'plunk' pinot grigio in a 'bar' where you are drinking jack and cokes, may not be the best idea. that is the number one wine that is over charged in 99/100 cases. costs $8-12 per/btl for the establishment, then they charge any where from $10-14 per/gls. sad but true :lol:
