Why Yes, Virginia, There is a DC Bar Offering Beers for the Price of Jayson Werth's Batting Average
According to NBC Washington, Duffy's Irish Pub will be offering PBR pounders for the price of Jayson Richard Gowan Werth's batting average this Sunday:
But Duffy’s Irish Pub has found a way to make that first-half bust pay off now. During the game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, you can order PBR tallboys, Buds and High Lifes for whatever Werth’s batting average is at the time. For example, if the promotion started right now, at the time of publication, Werth’s .211 batting average would mean $2.11 brewskies.
Never mind the obvious attempt at free publicity here, Duffy's may actually be doing JRG Werth a solid by offering up this promotion. In May, a Pittsburgh bar was criticized (championed by some) for giving five cents off pitchers every time the Pirates lost. The Buccos are now in first place.
But Duffy's took their promotion a step further: They created a Facebook page for the event and will hand out free shots of Tullamore Dew to fans wearing Nats attire every time Werth gets a hit. If they stocked one bottle of the Irish whiskey, they bought too much.
$126 million, folks.
