The Slide-Back

“Whenever the night starts out with people asking for Long Island Iced Teas, you are in trouble...When Chromeo played [at the Bowery Ballroom], their crowd drank house vodka and Budweiser. Didn’t tip. Some of them did what I’ll call the slide-backs. They put a dollar down on the bar, wait until you turn your back, then palm their buck and walk away. Classy. When your night starts out with “What’s your cheapest drink?” that’s also not good.” [NY'er]
