    Live the high life. Get some wine in a tiny plastic bottle or ask for a mystery beer (it'll be $3 - it'll also be the crappiest beer they have - drink lots of them).

    Frosty beer comes in plastic cups, and burgers and hotdogs are cooked on a makeshift grill. Be sure to bring cash to pay for your afternoon of outdoor boozing. Read more
