special offer: still-abnormally-high prices

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.
