Is it reasonable for a bar or club to increase cover charges and/or drink prices for special events like Halloween and Pride?

“If people are stupid enough to pay it, then the bars deserve it.”

Bill Johnson
Hair designer

“I don’t have a problem with that because I work at a bar. The money goes to good use. It helps pay for security and all that, which makes things safer.”

James Crook
Bartender/DJ

“Well, if they were to keep it cheaper, more people would
probably go. I mean, we don’t have a lot of money.”

Jerry Sanchez
Barista

“No. They’re making twice the amount of money they normally do, and it’s already overpriced.”

Brandon Myers
Bank employee

“No. I think it’s price-gouging. There are like 20,000 people down here. Do they really need to raise the price?”

Jonathan Murcer
Barista
