Is It Just Us Or Is $5 Bucks Crazy For Soda On The Strip?
Before you judge us, we know. Dining just about anywhere on The Strip can be expensive. Usually, we don't bat an eye when presented with a bill for our meal. But, after snacking recently at the newly opened Rattlecan inside Venetian, we literally gasped when we saw how much our glass of soda cost -- $5 bucks. And, then immediately reached for our cup to drain it dry.
Now, maybe this pricing isn't that new to you in your travels up and down The Strip. And, maybe, we haven't paid close enough attention in the past. But, it was quite the sticker shock to this Chatter'er. Especially, when our side of sweet potato fries only cost a buck more. And, when we noticed that a lot of Rattlecan's pickle'd appetizers were less than our Pepsi (many running around $4) and that it's basic burger was only $4 dollars more. (And, side rant, we actually prefer Coke.)
Since this visit, we've only dined at one other Strip restaurant, Public House at Luxor. We purposely ordered the Pepsi to see how much it would run us there. The bill showed a charge of $3.75. And, this time, we made sure to throw back a refill.
So, we want to know, has McDonald's $1 sodas spoiled us? Are we the only ones that think $5 bucks for a pop is a tough fee to swallow? Tell us what you think in the comments down below.
