Is naming a drink “AZ 1070” an effective way to ridicule Arizona’s unAmerican anti-immigrant law?
Honest question. I can’t decide. The server asked the bartender what the name meant, and she (herself with a little bit of an accent) came back laughing, so I guess the bartender made it funny, but…

At trivia last week, the server suggested my friend try a mixture of pear hard cider and framboise (raspberry beer). Ooh, sounds good—four all around.
Later, the trivia emcee shared a list of “jokes” along the lines of:
- “When men say I’m not hungry, it means they aren’t hungry.”
- “When women say how do I look, it means do I look fat.”
- “When women say no, it means yes.”
When we got the bill, the pear/raspberry drink was identified as “PANTYD”. Someone asked:
“Pantydropper. I think it’s tacky, I don’t like to use it.”
Thank you, sir. I should have overtipped him more than I did.
Thankfully, we are taking a trivia hiatus for the summer, so hopefully I will have forgotten the sexism before I go back.
PS. Both drinks tasted damn good.
