In the middle of an earthquake, some people might think to evacuate, or to crouch in a doorway, or to tweet a joke about where you were when THE EARTHQUAKE struck.
Some bars and restaurants see a golden, God-sent even, juicy marketing opportunity. Already the Power Plant Live bars are offering earthquake drink specials.
"It's Tremor Tuesday at Power Plant Live!" the Inner Harbor venue said in a tweet. "$2.50 domestics tonight at Mex..Let's shake things up a bit." Original! Also? $2.50? The earth shook and you can't even offer a beer for a buck?
One can only imagine the rationale: Let's not go crazy. It was only 5.8.
Not to be outdone, the Rams Head Group tweeted: "Please join us for AFTERSHOCK Happy Hour!!"
Who else have you seen plugging their bars' earthquake specials?
More bar specials: No Idea gleefully status updated unspecified earthquake specials and Alonso's & Loco Hombre will offer half off shaken drinks after 4 p.m. Tuesday night.
