(Alabama) Club promotes 'Food Stamp Friday' event

Fliers for "Food Stamp Friday" at a local nightclub in Montgomery, Ala., are causing a buzz around town. According to postcards for the event, you can show your Electronic Benefits Transfer card at the door for a discounted $5 cover charge and free shots inside. ...While Montgomery residents are left to wonder if it's mocking others' misfortune or a misplaced attempt to glamorize federal assistance, we can't imagine a better way to screen opportunistic gold diggers out of your club scene. <---msn's words

1. I hope thousands of low income people show up and hold them to their promise.

Pack the place with homeless folks and minorities that the rich white kids that frequent this place would never want to hang around with. Then sue the owner for false advertising when he refuses to give them free shots.

5. Well my bet is this bar is a white guy making fun of food stamp users.

AFAIK, you can't use food stamp to buy stuff in bars, so why make this offer for real? $5 cover and free shots? The only thing this gets him is 'proof' that food stamp users are abusing the program.

7. I'm not too lazy to look it up. I'm just not giving the fucking Daily Caller any hits.

The name of the club wasn't in the MSN article. If you want to prop up the Daily Caller that's your prerogative.

9. i guess you could have tried to google it

to avoid the link...but I guess you'd rather get all huffy and not actually bother with doing a little investigation instead of trying to blame 'whitey'...

8. I can just hear the screams from the rw. We have a animal hospital in our area that will spay or

neuter pets for free for people how have an EBT card. That at least should pass muster.
