OT - fresh glass or no

TjcoleyTjcoley Posts: 3,422
Bartender keeps trying to give me a fresh glass with each vodka rocks. I insist on using the old one, because the ice is 'marinated'. Just can't let the lime wedges pile up as they take up space. Am I wrong?

    tell the bt to shut up and pour. I hate it when I'm consuming beer from a bottle and have to continually remind Pimpy Pimpleton that I require a fresh, frosted mug or glass to enjoy my PBR to it's maximum enjoyability... you'd think after the 8th $@&# time he'd remember.

    Please do not make "seasoned ice" a thing.  Bars might start charging extra for "Man Ice" from an "Ice Barrow" or something.

    However, in a service industry, employees should serve the customer.  If you are paying 5+ for a vodka drink, you should get it however you want it.

    I think the seasoning process is called "The Travis Method"

    So, does that mean that at a bar near me, I will soon be able to ask for refill and the waitperson will ask "Would you like a Travis refill - or would you prefer a fresh glass?"

    I assure you "The Travis Method" is alive and well in Texas bars everywhere but it means something completely different. Order at your own peril.

  • Keep the same glass but always get another stir stick, I keep them so I can keep track of how many I've had when the tab comes.  Sometimes I lose count if I don't keep my stir sticks.

    I keep them so I can spell out :"Thank you for your exquisite service this evening. Could you please call me a cab?" on the bar when I've had one or 2 too many :))

    In the UK it is unheard of to offer a fresh glass. In Scotland it's a fight

  • If he argued, did you ask him if he grabbed a new glass at home everytime he poured a new one? I know for myself, I would have to install a commercial bar dishwasher in the kitchen, and garage, or, buy many.....many, glasses.

    They never argued. . It was actually 2 lady bartenders who had fun with it. If they forgot and poured a clean glass, they apologized. It became an ongoing thing over the 4 days I was there. Back next week so I'll see if they remember.
