A student tried her luck on the Wetherspoons app and ended up with more than 60 free drinks. So many, in fact, she had to ask bar staff to stop making them.
Perri Game, a 25-year-old student from Berkshire, went down to The Bear in Maidenhead with a friend on Sunday night.
Perri thought it might be a good idea to share her table number and location and see if any random people on the internet fancied buying her a drink. They did.
Much like her predecessor, fellow Sheffield-based student Rory McArthur, Perri was sent all manner of drinks and snacks via the Wetherspoons app.
The app, which launched last year, allows customers – or anyone, as long as they have a pub name and table number – order drinks to the table without having to go to the bar. Remote ordering is becoming quite the millennial phenomenon.
Perri told Mirror Online : “It was hilarious. It was the first time the staff there at been made aware strangers could purchase drinks for a table – they were like what the f*** is going on?
“We had to make friends with a group of strangers to help us drink the drinks because there was only two of us out”.
Perri was sent cocktail jugs, gin, as well as glasses of milk and gravy boats of peas. Perri tweeted some of the more bizarre things that arrived to her table.
“I think in the end it was about 60 drinks, including milk, water, apple juice, jugs of pitchers, 20 shots and glasses of things I’ve never even seen before,” Perri said.
“At the end we asked the staff to stop making the drinks and just keep them for themselves because it was getting out of hand”.
