Lol, that's how much we pay at the stadiums and arenas.

Most people laugh at that.

That's interesting. There have been sporadic talks about reforming the coinage, but I think that US culture is so credit and debit-driven at this point that most people do not come into contact with many pennies. I would say that upwards of 90% of my transactions are made via credit card.

Here even the parking meters have gone over to credit card readers.

It does bother me, but I couldn't quite say it shits me

Yeah, pennies are a waste. But then again, cash itself is becoming almost useless. Change is pretty much useless, too.

Give it 10-20 years down the line and change will be useless.

After hearing stories from overseas, I get the impression a lot of things are well overpriced here, beer included. My sister got a carton of Carlsberg for about 5 quid in Edinburgh. Though it sounded exceptional, I still can't even begin to imagine that here.

Someone said that beers at U2's Angels Stadium show were $14.

(I had a $7 Gatorade)

We need to get rid of pennies here in the U.S., and at least change what we make nickels out of. They contain almost 7 cents worth of metal in them. So really, everyone should hoard nickels because it is like an instant 40 percent return on your investment.

We got rid of 1 and 2 cents a few years ago. Yesterday I went to the money exchange to get CAD, and wtf. I had to pay 11 cents. Now I got useless cents in my wallet again cause nowhere they use them. Though Germany and France and Ireland still have their 1 and 2 cents, and prolly elsewhere too. It annoys me because it makes my wallet heavy.

What kind of beer do they usually serve at Canadian U2 gigs?

In Vancouver, your only choice generally was Molson Canadian cans.

So is that any good? I've never had any North American beer.

It's not the worst beer they could serve, but it's not great.

I hope Montreal will have a good selection. Well, I hope they have wine at the Hippodrome.

Boy am I glad we picked an Irish pub for our meet up, at least I know the beer is good there.


I usually allow myself one beer when in the stadium for U2, cause I don't want to have to leave my spot to pee.

Wow, how did I miss this thread?!

Beer is wonderful. Think I had a little too much over the long 3 day weekend here in the U.S.
