Last Wednesday night’s Busywork at Detroit Bar was pretty great.
One of the raddest things about two dollar beers is that people don’t really give a shit about them. If you pay ten dollars for a cocktail, then chances are good you are gonna drink it all. But when you only have to pay two bucks (it used to only be one!!) for a shitty beer, then it is real easy to drink a little bit and then forget about it.
Say you get distracted by something, like a gay guy from Poland rubbing your ass or Tui beating up your best friend’s boyfriend. It’s real easy to set your beer down and forget about it and then you don’t even have to stress it! It was only two bucks!!
Now the raddest part about all of this is not that beers are only two dollars on Wednesday nights at Detroit (although that is rad). The best part is that at about 1am after all the glasses of Jameson and shots of Patron and Hennessy (and some fruity Apple shots that I got talked into buying a round of) have started to make everything “Much Better Now!” then all you have to do is wander from table to table enjoying all of the half drank cups of two dollar beer left all around the club!
If you don’t have an aversion to other people’s germs or communicable diseases in general (and don’t worry the shots of patron will help to curb those compunctions), then wandering around Detroit at 1am is like being a drunk kid lost in a Magical Fairy Beerland where cheap, shitty beer seems to just grow on bar tables. Everywhere you turn there will be another table full of half-full (I’m an optimist!!) cups of beer (and some beautiful stranger’s saliva)!
Always imagine these girls were drinking every half drank beer before you!
NEVER imagine it was this guy. (Hi Andy!!)

So come out and see us this Wednesday at Detroit Bar’s Busywork. Beers are on me! If you want to find me, I will be the one wearing shiny pointy shoes and braiding my hair in Magical Fairy Beerland!
