Cocktail Amortization

June 10th, 2015
ideas, alcohol, food  [html]

Several generalizations:
  • If you're making a cocktail it's not much more work to make two at once.
  • People who know a lot about cocktails like to share their knowledge.
  • People who are newer to cocktails aren't sure what to get.
  • Shared experiences are fun.
What if a cocktail bar had a policy that when someone orders a drink another person could ask for a copy, and both people would get a discount? Come up with catchier phrasing than "I want one too!," advertise it, your bar gets a differentiator, and everyone wins?

(This came out of a lunchtime discussion at work, though seeing as I don't drink and have spent very little time in bars so my sense of what people would like isn't very strong.)

Update 2015-06-10: This would be illegal in MA, however, as it involves charging "a price less than the price regularly charged for such drinks".

What do executives do, anyway?

An executive with 8,000 indirect reports and 2000 hours of work in a year can afford to spend, at most, 15 minutes per year per person in their reporting hierarchy... even if they work on nothing else. That job seems impossible. How can anyone make any im…
