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

“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

“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

“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?”
