  1. You’ll Have to Pony Up $11 for an Olympic Beer - NYTimes.com

Here’s one advantage of watching the Olympics at home instead of in London: you can crack open a cold one for regular retail prices. Because if you’re at an event at the London Games, a pint of beer will set you back more than $11.
The Games organizers released a sample menu of what will be available at Olympic concessions. According to The Telegraph, officials defended the prices as “more than comparable” to other events, but the public has reacted with a not-so-subtle howl.
And just to add to the indignity, the only beer sold at the events will be Heineken, a Dutch beer.

Since I’ll be haunting the newsroom in NYC it seems beer prices are a push.
