Four retired guys were walking down the street in Ocala, Florida when they saw a sign that said, "Old Timer's Bar" "All Drinks 10 Cents!"

They looked at each other, and then went in, thinking this is too good to be true

The old bartender said in a voice that carried across the room, "Come on in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, Gentlemen?"

All four asked for a martini. In short order, the bartender served up four iced martinis, shaken, not stirred, and said, "That'll be 10 cents each, please."

The four men stared at the bartender for a moment, looked at each other...then quickly paid the 40 cents.

After the second round, still at the same price, their curiosity got the best of them. Finally, one of the men said, "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for only a dime apiece?"

"Well, I'm a retired tailor from Boston, and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $50 million and decided to move to FL and open this place. Every drink costs a dime apiece; wine, liquor, beer, all the same."

"Wow, that's quite a story" said one of the men. As they continued to sip their martinis, they couldn't help but notice the other three guys at the end of the bar who didn't have a drink in front of them...and hadn't ordered anything all the while they were there.

One of the men gestured toward the men with no drinks and asked the bartender, "What's with them?"

"Oh, they're Pennsylvania Dutchmen. They're waiting for happy hour at 5 o'clock when drinks are half price."

That's what this country needs...a good $.10 drink

There's a restaurant about 10 miles from where I live that is a hole in the wall, good food and a good cup of coffee for 10 cents. Doesn't quite come close to a good stiff drink, but with the cost of everything else rising, 10 cents for coffee and has been for years. They're always full.

One of the tournament bars here charges $.25 for coffee, free refills....and $.25 a game for pool.
I think the Dart playing crowd subsidizes the pool players...after paying $3.25 a cup in LV...I can tip $1 here for coffee, and still feel like I'm saving money....
