Vodka Scam – Is it Rare?

Flickr user espensorvik

Today, the Asssociated Press released a story about a Jersey shore bar fined $20,000 for serving cheaper vodka drinks than what customers requested.

Allegedly, the inventory room at the Laguna Grill and Martini Bar in Brigantine had a large red funnel and a cardboard sign that read, “Only save these vodka bottles. Do not throw and call to top shelf empties out.”

What does that mean? If you ordered a Grey Goose and cranberry, you probably got the cranberry with a shot of vodka from a $7 bottle.

My question: are we supposed to believe this doesn’t happen in a lot of New Jersey establishments?

I am not accusing any bar of scamming customers; I’m just saying it seems like an easy money-saver. Just don’t leave a huge sign and funnel out in the open, and you could probably get away with it.
