The national stimulus package has finally gone through. And while we can debate its merits all day long, I am positive that we can all agree on one important element that the package was missing. And that, my friends, was the element of surprise
Luckily, Rogue Ales
has stepped up to the plate, with the aptly titled Rogue Nation Bailout Program (RNBOP). Twice a day, at each Rogue location, an unsuspecting person or table will be ambushed and not, as you might suspect, be killed and eaten. Instead, Rogue Ales will pay 100% of their tab.
Since the program's inception, 350 bills have been paid by Rogue. The press release (which you can see in Rogue's press room here
) quotes Janet Wallace, who, with three of her friends, was selected by Rogue to walk away bill-free. Says Wallace:
It's always nice to get something for free. It's especially so when the something free comes unexpected.
See that, Mr. President? Next time you ladle tons of money on the nation, you should do so when we're not looking! You know, like you're doing for AIG.
