Free Beer in Barcelona

If it sounds too good to be true, it often is. And it was!

A while ago I was wandering the streets close to Universitat and saw a sign in a bar advertising “Free Beer Here Tonight”. I ran home and called my friends telling them about the great news and we arranged to meet at the bar later that night for some “free beer”. As we got to the bar we saw that there were quite a few people in there, which was a great sign. We lined up at the bar waiting to receive our free beer when a man got up on the small stage an anounced that the band would be starting now and could we all give the band a round of applause: “Can you all put your hands together for tonights live act Free Beer”. It was then apparent that we would not be receiving any free beer to drink.

We had a laugh about the situation and ended up having an enjoyable night listening to Free Beer, not drinking it.

  1. Ah ah ah…
    poor guys…
    The owner of the bar may have some studies in marketing or advertising. Maybe it was not fair, ok… But it worked!

  2. Definitely. Very sneaky.
    And yes, it clearly worked well. Ha ha ha
