Disappointed with event

Sarah Carruthers | Friday, December 4, 2009

After receiving numerous e-mails from my beloved class of 2010, I decided to attend their Beer Tasting event at Legends on Wednesday night.
I was promised five to seven beer samples and some food, all for 10 dollars. I wasn’t very interested in the Legends delicacies, seeing as the event didn’t start until 8 p.m., but I was excited about sampling the beers, assuming I would get my money’s worth.
What was I given, along with my fellow classmates? About two ounces each of six beers. Maybe a little more. But really. Less than a pint for 10 dollars. Oh wait — let’s account for the price of some barely warm sausage or pretzel I could have decided to eat (I didn’t) at 8:30. So then maybe I should have received seven dollars worth of beer. But I obviously didn’t.
So may I repeat, for the multitude of seniors who decided — wisely — to save their money and not attend: I paid 10 dollars for a few terrible buffet options and one beer.
