Wireless Liquor Spout: No More Free Drinks?

Wireless Liquor SpoutWe keep reading in the news about people being up in arms about the dwindling privacy in our society. Cameras in dressing rooms, satellites that can track you within ten feet by your cell phone signal, the Patriot Act...all of these things pale when compared to the Orwellian nightmare that is Capton’s Wireless Liquor Monitoring System.

If this thing is adopted, gone are the days when you could sweet-talk your bartender into stiffer drinks, or they could give you a longer pour for stiffer tips. And Jeebus only knows what would happen if they tried to take the spout off the bottle...it probably features an exploding ink packet like they use to track bank robbers.

Capton’s Beverage Tracker system is an innovative liquor monitoring system that helps bar owners increase their liquor profits by providing real-time wireless liquor consumption data to help prevent against shrinkage. Our system help you identify over-pours and drink giveaways. Think of it as an electronic journal of everything that happens within your bar operations. Remember, you can’t manage what you can’t measure!
Welcome to 1984.

Sure, we agree. And we'd rather have the bars stay in business than get greedy for the extra gulp.

But charming a bartender into an extra pour is a huge part of the giant game that is drinking. Maybe we should just consider it extra points if we can get the heavy pour from a bartender who's being monitored. A coup de grace, if you will.

Plus, if this thing catches on, we're guessing it's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to disarm it... Can't wait to see that game of counter-measures and counter-counter-measures.

Yeah, but if you own a bar, why wouldn't you want this system? Liquor theft can cost a bar, on average, 25% of their profits, so if I had a bar, I would want to know what my bartenders are doing to make sure they're not ripping me off!
