    I recently went to a restaurant and the soda/ice tea was priced at $3.50. We usually order water and more restaurants are not listing the price of the drinks.

    I am sure there are more expensive soda/tea prices than $3.50. Just curious. [​IMG]

    I remember paying $4.00 somewhere (airport?) last year. [​IMG] I bet someone will make that look like chump change.

    wow and i thought $2.75 for a can coke w/o refill was expensive (which was what I was charged last night). The food prices at this place that I went to was quite reasonable (like $13 for a bowl of fusili with chicken and sausage)..but the drinks were just priced ridiculously

    I was charged $15 for five small cokes at a bar once. Probably should have asked if there were free refills first huh? Whoops.

    Most I've ever seen is 4.00, in NYC.

    I remember a few years ago being charged $3.25 for cokes with no refills at a restaurant on the East Coast. Most places here in So Cal charge between $2.50 - $3.50 for a soda or iced tea with unlimited refills.

    About 12 years ago we were in Bermuda and paid $4 each for soft drinks, no refills.
    Currently pay $4 for a soft drink in the stadium at college football games.

    I forgot about sporting events. Yikes. I don't want to even think of the amounts of money thrown away on beverages consumed at baseball & basketball games over the years...

    Norma's at Le Meridian in NYC charges you $9 for their orange juice. It's fresh squeezed and unlimited but that is still insane

    Well, I'd probably pay $9 for fresh squeezed unlimited OJ. I mean, you pay like $4 at IHOP or Denny's for one glass of disgusting OJ.

    I would have to drink several glasses though, to assuage my guilt for paying $9 for OJ. [​IMG]

    All that OJ can cause some tummy trouble.

    5 bucks for an iced tea at Rovers. The tea was mighty leaf and brewed to perfection, the simple syrup was infused with verveine and the presentation was worth at least two dollars.

    I'm sure the Park Hyatt Paris charges 6-7 euros for a coke, they are easily 10 euros in the mini bar.
     
  15. $4.00 for a club soda at a lunch place in Northern NJ. The french dip with a cup of soup was $6.95. [​IMG]

    $12 for a bottle of Coca-Cola in Malaysia... The bottle of coke cost more than a meal where each person was allowed to choose 3 huge main courses/dim sums.... quite shocking and depressing but understanding..

    I've paid anywhere in the $7-10.00 range in Paris for a bottle of coke. Then you have to beg for ice. But, when I want a coke, I want a coke, so I pay.

    $5 for iced tea, with no refills, at Thai in Cancun. The food was amazing, but they didn't tell us about the no refills charge so the beverage bill was $60!!! Almost caused an international incident [​IMG]

    Was charged $10 for a cup of regular coffee at the St. Regis Grill NYC many years ago.

    I told the waiter I just wanted to drink the coffee, not buy the cup.

    I'm pretty sure it's more than that in the restaurant.

    I too would fork over $9 for unlimited fresh squeezed OJ.
