I drank a beer with Mitt Romney and Barack Obama at the Flying Saucer...Gary Johnson was not invited.Submitted by RobHino on Sun, 10/14/2012 - 02:58
My boss thew some Spurs tickets my way at the last minute as I just got home from a week-long trip to Chicago. How could I resist?
Afterwards, my brother, his girlfriend, and I went to the Flying Saucer for a beer and some eats. I've always liked the Flying Saucer. But I will not be returning.
As we sampled beers from around Texas, supporting local breweries, I noticed this image and this beer coaster...
Apparently, patrons could buy beer mugs with Romney and Obama caricatures, in turn casting a vote limited to two statists.
Gary Johnson, Virgil Goode, and others were missing. If the Flying Saucer was really interested in engaging their patrons in political conversation, they should have offered other non-status-quo candidates.
Then I noticed the coaster which said, "Give us a piece of your mind"!
So I did.
I visited www.beerknurd.com and clicked on "make contact" as the coaster suggested.
I told them that while I loved visiting their establishment, I would not be returning because they did not include Gary Johnson in their beer mug poll.
I doubt it, but maybe, just maybe, a company like that might really be bold like some of the beer they serve and encourage meaningful discussion.
What would you tell them?
