Whiskey
Bridge Bar is the place to warm up with whiskey this month. The $10 you-call-it whiskey cocktails will be priced at $3.50 all month -- which represent 35 degrees. The price drops as the temperature drops, so if it's 20 degrees, it's $2, and if it's 1 degree, it's only -- you guessed it -- 10 cents. Start praying for cold weather.
