Ah, mom's night out. I currently get about one night a month to go out with the other mom's at my son's preschool and it's a lot of fun. You might think once a month doesn't seem like much but when you're chasing after two kids the time flies by pretty fast. We usually pick a local restaurant and get dinner, drinks or dessert. Last night we went to The Cheesecake Factory. Did you know they charge $10.50 for a mixed drink? Neither did I. 10 friggin' dollars! No wonder restaurants like that are going out of business. Do these people realize we're in a recession? WTF? Like most restaurants they don't list the prices for their drinks on the menu but like an idiot I thought they'd charge the same general price as most local restaurants do for a foo foo martini drink. But $10.50? And I didn't even get a buzz. Let's be real here. I could buy a bottle of the cheap vodka they used to make the drink and a bottle of juice for what they charged me. And I bet I would have a better time. I mean, I don't even have a good I got drunk and did this stupid thing story.... For $10.50 I should be able to at least get a little stupid. Right? $10.50... Fume. Don't buy drinks at The Cheesecake factory folks. It's a rip off. Just thought I should let you know. Back to the Bailey's.
