Personally, how it's worked for me is that I will offer to buy friends drinks and friends will offer to buy me drinks, nobody keeps track and it all sort of evens out in the end. It really shouldn't require a lot of thought. Most of these situations were hypotheticals for me, and honestly, if I only had enough money for one drink, I probably wouldn't go out to a bar.
I'm actually kinda sorta maybe very interested in watching Bling Ring after reading the Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales from a few years ago.
@This is my new user name It's really the equipment (and the training to make certain drinks). If you can afford to outfit your kitchen with thousands of dollars in espresso equipment, you can make a good espresso at home.

It really does make me want to buy Emily’s book. She interviewed women from all across the country about why they left their jobs to become Southern food bloggers or Etsy store owners and the common thread was that they were unhappy in the workplace due to things like unpaid maternity leave. So I think the discussion is focused mostly on that and not just on the hobbies themselves.
@readyornot Haha. I felt like Leo is already getting his face plastered everywhere.
