Cheap Beer

Only in New York. There was an article in the New York Daily News about how bars had reduced the price of beer after the Yankees loss to the Angels last night, apparently to help fans drown their sorrows. But this made me stop and think:

"It is great to see them back in the playoffs again," said Noelle Mooney, co-owner of Stout and the neighboring Fat Annie's Truck Stop where beers were slashed to $5 for last night's game.

The price of a beer was slashed to $5? Good Lord, what was the pre-slashed price?
