I just saw an old thread about the Bar Card where someone complained about how restrictive the bars are when you try to use them. Having used the 2013 card already, I thought I'd share our experiences.
We went to 7 bars on the card, and only one or two of them had ANY restrictions this year. Most of them would even let us get 2 different drinks on the 1st card so a couple might only use one card at each bar before we moved on. Here are the bars we visited:
Schooner Wharf Bar - went 3 times, no restrictions at all
Sunset Pier - no restrictions unless you wanted the special drink in a coconut, then he'd get 2 coconuts and I'd get the 2 drinks that went inside - so really no restrictions
Bagatelle - beer, wine or well drinks (and thank you to the poster who recommended this place, it was fabulous for lunch!)
Rooftop Cafe - some of their specialty drinks were 2 for 1, some weren't.
801 Bourboun Bar - no restrictions
JDL Big 10 Pub - went 2 times, no restrictions
Blue Mojito - no restrictions
We bought the cards when they were BOGO Free, and we figure we saved about $70 per card! Even if you buy them full price at $20 each, you're still saving money after just a few drinks. We highly recommend!
