This drives me nuts. Not that drink prices in D.C. are so high, per se — that’s fine, businesses should charge what they can for alcohol. But the brazenness of it sometimes gets to me. Don’t put a goddamn placard out on the street proudly advertising your $4 domestic bottle happy hour special. Don’t charge me $7 for a Yuengling. Gussy it up! Hide the gouging! When you fail to do so, it’s sort of insulting.
