This frontline report comes in from photographer, JVNY reader, and Mars Bar habitue, Goggla.
A gaggle of girls came in to Mars Bar. One ordered a watermelon-flavored vodka with soda. By some chance, the watermelon was in stock, but had probably been sitting there for years.
She was horrified to find fruit flies in her drink and sent it back. The bartender held the glass to the light and just said, "Huh."
Another patron recommended the girl get a beer since that comes in sealed bottles. She insisted on a fresh drink from the same vodka. There were flies in the bottle.
We cheered and said that was lucky, but she walked out, leaving her jaw on the floor behind her.
