the upside of hard times for artists, hideout 2009

With the economy falling on harder times, every little bit helps. For the artistic community hit by financial downturn, the effects on keeping up a regular drinking lifestyle could be disastrous. Thus, a spot of good news from Hideout owner and art provocateur (the “L” in “PDL”), Greg Lundgren: throughout 2009, visual artists showcasing their work on the storied walls of the Hideout will experience happy hour prices at all hours:

… After days of research, the Hideout announces it’s 2009 Economic Stimulus Plan for visual artists showcasing work at our establishment. For the calendar year of 2009, we extend discounted prices on beer and spirits, to all (80) of our artists, all of the time. You may enjoy $1.50 Rainiers, $2.50 drafts, and $3.00 well drinks from opening to close, 365 days a year. This economic stimulus plan expires on December 31st, 2009, at which time we hope the United States economy has sufficiently recovered and art sales have returned to pre-depression levels. … [arttogo]

The rest of the announcement is available at Regina Hackett’s P-I blog [arttogo]. Anyone have any other creative discount programs to tide us over until the economy gets saved?
