See, that's what I was told from the get go. They are donations. However, I have been hearing SO many conflicting views from so many different people and I love it. Without that it wouldn't be the Burn. Next year is going to be so much betterilly dilly wrote: I honestly don't know. I suppose so.
I've never worked on that side of the counter. I always figured the booze came from people 'donating' it to help fuel the machine.
I always bring at least 3 beers (or canned alcoholic beverage) when I buy ice not on shift. 1 for my cashier, 1 for my slinger, and 1 for a pusher.
And for the record, after my shift I brought the folks at Ice-9 beers both times when doing the ice-runs.
