Hero Idahoans Expose Beer Injustice: $7 Large Beer Actually Same Size As $4 Small
We love to mock stupid lawsuits here at Happy, like the monster teen who sued her parents to make them cover college tuition. (She lost.) But sometimes there are lawsuits that we endorse wholeheartedly, and this is one of them. CenturyLink Arena in Boise is selling people the same size beer for two different prices.
Lawsuit? Hell, it’s time to riot in the streets.
The lawsuit says CenturyLink Arena, home of the Idaho Steelheads [minor league] hockey team, defrauded customers by charging $3 more for a tall, narrow cup advertised as a “large” that actually holds the same amount of beer as the shorter, wider cup described as a “small.”
Four fans filed the suit Tuesday in Boise’s 4th District Court against Block 22 LLC, which does business as CenturyLink Arena. Brady Peck, Michele Bonds and William and Brittany Graham are seeking $10,000 in damages.
In the lawsuit, Peck says he’s attended at least 30 events over the past three years at the arena, including a hockey game on March 5, and that he’s purchased beer each time. The other three plaintiffs say they have been attending sporting events at the venue for five years and that they bought at least one large $7 beer at each event.
We’re contacting our very own Idaho-dweller Dok Zoom to find out if he has ever attended an Idaho Steelheads game and whether he will be
joining this class action lawsuit fighting to rid the world of the greatest injustice known to man. No beer justice, no beer peace!
Also, too, we have now learned that this is apparently A Thing that stadiums do on the regular.
Side eye to you, Seattle, Oakland, and Los Angeles. Idaho probably learned this from watching you. IT LEARNED IT FROM WATCHING YOU.
