A PR pitch that will leave you needing a drink
It’s a deep recursion into the blogosphere. Sent to the science editor of a news and culture blog, asking for publicity for a story at a science blog site. All about a “scientifically proven” method of getting a bartender’s attention.
There you are—waiting at the bar, dying for a drink, but you can’t seem to catch the bartender’s attention. What’s your next move? Wait patiently? (Yeah, right.) Panic? Forget the drink and just pretend to your date that you’re way drunker than you actually are?
Well, lucky for you, Discover magazine’s Seriously Science? blog reports today on a technique that is scientifically proven to help you get a drink. All you do is this: Yell “BEER ME! NOW!” as loudly as you can while pointing your finger at the bartender.
No, just kidding. Don’t do that. (Though it might actually work in some cases.)
But seriously, here’s what you do:
Step 1) Position yourself directly at the bar counter.
Step 2) Look at a staff member.
Step 3) Receive your drink and enjoy!
