The Cheapest & Most Expensive Cities to Drink a Beer: From Statista: “Having a beer can be dirt cheap or extra expensive – depending on what city you are in when the thirst for a cold one strikes. According to data by Numbeo, Middle Eastern and Scandinavian locations rank among the world’s priciest. Here, a large beer in a restaurant can run into the double-digits and even a store might charge you more than $3.50 for a 0.5 liter/17 ounce beer.”
Notably: today is the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech in 1968 in Memphis, where he was supporting striking sanitation workers. He was assassinated the next day.
