Thread: $12 cocktails, you 'avin a laugh?!

  1. #1

    Thumbs down $12 cocktails, you 'avin a laugh?!

    As a non drug user, I feel rather discriminated against. Two body search checkpoints, and drink prices way higher, was inebriation that much of a problem last year? I thought the crowd was pretty respectable, personally...

    The searches have no effect on drug use, there was tons of weed...and other drugs of choice that are so much easier to conceal than a flask.

    Boo!

    Last time I checked, alcohol was a drug. But what do I know?

    Don't do drugs that are out of your price range, or get insurance.

    I had 2 of the overpriced cocktails which I swear were diluted - had absolutely no effect on me on an empty stomach.

    They have a strict rule about shots:-( I got the bartender to compromise: he put an ice cube in my shot glass.

    I brought in one flask on Friday and decided to improve my buzz with a Bed Bull/vodka from the speakeasy. Those were $14... just absolutely absurd.

    Subsequently, I brought in 2 flasks Saturday and Sunday.

    I bought 1 overpriced drink and tipped well, then went up for the second and got a full glass of citron with a splash of cranberry juice. Even when the prices are super high, tip well, you will get a much better drink the second time around.

    those drugs of choice are also still against the rules once inside and users of said drugs are taking their chances getting busted. you on the other hand have your drug of choice readily available for legal purchase inside the venue (albeit at a premium but what did you expect).

    i like that coachella isnt a boozefest like most other shows i go to and that i never have to worry about some douche spilling their drink on me unless i go inside the beer garden (which i never do). camping is another story but i dont camp either

    This! My husband is a big tipper and he's tall. Bartenders set him up every time. I was just disappointed in their lack of rum...boo! That coconut rum was crap!

    I like the Vodka so I was happy, they had multiple flavors. It's funny, as the bartender poured the second drink he looked my way and said "these measured pours are crap" and started shaking the bottle giving me 2 full pours, it was a very tasty drink.
