My best free drink story: I was at a bar, trying to prepare for open mic, chatting with a friend of a friend who was also getting ready for the show. Some guy further down the bar starts talking about who knows what, trying to get attention, we try to placate him but he doesn’t, so finally we just tell him to either shut up or buy us drinks.
He bought us drinks.
My worst free drink story: I was at a dive bar with some friends to watch a hockey game (I still have no idea why we went there, of all places) and an old man noticed I was wearing a team T-shirt so he took me by the shoulders, shook me, and said “That’s a nice shirt!” and then during the game sent a pitcher of beer to my table. SO creepy.
