There are so many earthly pleasures in Queens today: U.S. Open tennis, a Labor Day weekend and free beer!
This afternoon on the Arthur Ashe grounds, Heineken is offering free samples of Heineken Premium Light Beer (low in calories!) in NyQuil-sized plastic cups. You’d think people would be in an appreciative mood.
"I need some waffle fries," said Adam Freed, a 23-year old investment banker from Chelsea, after taking his tiny swig and offering a decidedly mixed review.
"Not that good," said Greg Smith, from California.
Also not that good, Heineken is stamping your hand when you walk in to make sure no one gets a second dose of the stuff.
"You gotta go wash the stamp off, and then you can come back in!" said one resourceful fan named Michelle Smith.
Did we mention the U.S. Open tennis?
