Free drinks with Clipper Card?

Not quite. But that didn’t stop a gaggle of tweeters yesterday evening from fantasizing.
It started with a casual tweet from @murphstahoe:
Bars should be able to get a Clipper reader, and give $2 off your first drink if you rode Muni in the last 20 minutes.
We spawned a hashtag: #clipperbooze, and from there, imagination ran wild.Â Here are some of the musings:
and free rides over a certain BAC %! the drivers can get those portable breathalyzers 😀 — @cripsahoy
bars should just take Clipper. Would speed adoption! — @jcsnotes
I think the breathalyzers would be better used on the #muni drivers… — @duggi
They’d have to put a breathalyzer on the clipper card, though. #clipperbooze — @geekpondering
Yes! To alleviate IRS on pretax $$$, bars name drinks after lines “I’ll have a K-Ingleside straight up” #clipperbooze — @jcsnotes
Broken Clipper fare readers in bars = free drink! #clipperbooze — @LSH
Ah, San Francisco. This all reminds us of another creative use for Clipper Cards. If you’ve got other creative, alcohol-infused ideas for Clipper, don’t forget to use “#clipperbooze” on Twitter.
