Going out to eat???

Seem the drinks(not beer, wine or liquor) are getting crazy expensive now days.    Here you will pay more then $2.00 for any drink.  We are getting to the point where we order a water and  one unsweet tea.

Didn't realize I put $200, LOL forgot the,,, period.

  • I hardy ever get a drink besides water when I go out. I don't care for soda or flavored lemonade that much, and coffee is ridiculously expensive. Once in a blue moon I'll get a margarita because I don't have a blender to make one at home, but that's only if my boyfriend and I go out by ourselves. A few times a year.

  • We always order water when we go out, but then we drink water for meals at home too. When it's just me and my husband out for a special occasion we may get something else, but most times it's just water.

  • Sorry for the double post, but what really sucks is that it costs restaurants very little for the soft drinks - like pennies and then they turn around and charge a premium!

  • We always order water for that very reason. $2.50 is the average here and for a family of 4? I could buy 5, 2 liters!

  • Yep- everything is so expensive. Child care, medical bills, gas, groceries, etc. You're right, Paxi, it is a blessing to even be able to go out to eat.

  • If I can't afford the drink, I simply don't go out. I'm going out to enjoy myself, not nit pick the drink cost.

    It's not about not being able to afford it. It's about the cost being silly for what it is. Also... I personally, can enjoy myself just fine with a good meal served with water.
