Can I Get a Glass of Water? No.

Posted on Tue, Jan 18, 2011 at 11:56 AM

A few friends joined me at a bar over the weekend. We spent enough money there to deserve a glass of water when we asked for it. Bartender: "We don't serve tap water. Bottles are $4." An empty glass to fill in the bathroom was also out of the question. There's nothing illegal about that policy and management is not required by any municipal, provincial or federal law to serve tap water (they can even charge for it if they want to). Am I the only one who finds that irresponsible? I should be able to wash down my tequilas with a warm glass of city water. I had 3 glasses with ice and lemon there today at lunch. Free of charge. That's fucked up. —Dehydrated
