  • Cocktail Amortization

    June 10th, 2015
    alcohol, food, ideas  [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".

    Some reasons to measure

    A question I get asked with some frequency is: why bother measuring X, why not build something instead? More bluntly, in a recent conversation with a newsletter author, his comment on some future measurement projects I wanted to do (in the same vein as ot…

    Songs about terrible relationships

    [Spoilers for several old musicals.] TV Tropes lists dozens of examples of the “I want” song (where the hero of a musical sings about their dream of escaping their small surroundings). After watching a bunch of musicals on maternity leave, I’m wondering h…
