We have developed an unhealthy obsession with Hollywood Whiskey Tango Bar & Grill's offer to buy patrons' $25 tab if the Miami Heat lose. It speaks to both the gambler and the drunk in us.
To help you fully take advantage of the promotion, we've whipped up a November calendar highlighting the best (and worst) bets for free booze at the Whiskey Tango Bar & Grill. We'll post a new one each month. Yes, we have a fair amount of free time on our hands, why do you ask?
Dan: The Heat will win this game. Watch from your plaid couch. The only free drink you're getting tonight is that old Miller Light can you'll find behind the mayonnaise in your fridge.
Norm: The Heat have a fair chance of losing tonight. Get buzzed at Whiskey Tango but not so drunk that you can't continue making witticisms that crack up your buddies, who may or may not be a mailman and a mildly retarded assistant bartender. The worst that could happen: You spend $25 on beer.
Boris: Launch a nuclear attack on your liver. Do it for your mother country. Coerce the designated driver into signing up for the gamble and drink on their tab after you run through your own $25. You'll be screwed if the Heat win, of course, but that's why it's called gambling.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
