Bar Etiquette NO NOs #2 – Spare Change | How to Act at a Club

[TRANSCRIPT] — Bar Etiquette NO NO Series #2 – SPARE CHANGE

Right… so you’re at the bar. Here’s what you don’t want to do: you don’t want to pay with change, ok?

I don’t know the people that do this, ok, but you hoard up a whole bunch of change, right, and then you think “I’ll just take this to the club.”

Ok, so you’ve got all this change… and we’re talking about dimes and nickels and pennies here, right? I mean, quarters are ok, a little bit at a time, but the rest of the stuff…you know…keep that for the 7-11 or convenience store, or take it to the bank and change it in, man. We don’t even actually deal with that stuff.  At a club, we don’t actually have space for pennies and nickels and dimes.

We kinda throw them into a…its own little separate jar, and we kinds give it away to bums and stuff. So, we don’t actually deal with that kind of stuff.

So, quarters, ok…one, two, three, four, maybe, but that’s it.  The rest…bring the bills.

The bills, baby, the bills.
