I came across an article in the New York Post (worst paper ever) on how Crumpler Bags in NYC is offering a deal where you can get certain bags for beer. According to the article and the owner of Crumpler, bartering beer for services is common in Australia. 12 cans of Guinness will get you a McBain messenger-style bag, and 12 cans of Sapporo and a bottle of soy sauce will get you a Moderate Embarrassment laptop bag. They'll take your picture at the time of bartering, and on June 11 you can return to help them finish the beer at a party! Store is at 45 Spring St. and 49 Eighth Ave.
