Barware

Well, it's that time of year again. After the Holidays, but before the sun comes out. The cold, bitter, dull, tv's-on-hiatus-and-it's-time-to-do-your-taxes time of year. Your favorite bar is snowed in, your favorite sport is unplayable. But there's still one thing you can do for fun. Just don't drive afterwards. There's nowhere to go anyways.

What is with the measurements on the pitcher? 84.5 ounce capacity? Who in their right mind knows how big 84.5 ounces is?

Yes I could just use google to convert them, but would it really be asking too much to get some practical units of measure? Anything above 20oz should be measured in gallons and quarts (and even pints).

Also, "84.5 ounce capacity" is pretty darned ambiguous when it comes to something like a porcelain pitcher. Is this a volume capacity or a weight capacity? I suspect volume, but who knows. It's porcelain (which I don't think of as being quite as strong as your typical pyrex), maybe it only can carry 84.5 ounces of weight (5.28lbs) before breaking/cracking under load. Considering the fact the units don't specify "fluid ounces" I have to assume this is the case and you should not get this pitcher if you plan on putting more than 5.28lbs of anything in it.

And I know this might upset some "amurrrcans", but if the units were in metric, they would be completely unambiguous and trivially easy to convert between different sized units.

Clearly, I am not in my right mind or I need to have the hook removed from my mouth for taking the bait on this one.

84.5 ounces in the description translates to "liquid ounces" to me. Not clear how this could be construed as anything other than a liquid measurement when used to describe a pitcher. CLEARLY YMMV.

84.5 ounces - to me, that immediately translates into 1/2 gallon + 20 oz. (And I can visualize how many glasses of lemonade or tea I can get out of that.)

8 oz = 1 cup, 2 cups = 1 pint (16 ozs.), 2 pints = 1 quart (32 ozs), 2 quarts = half a gallon (64 ozs). 20 oz. = more soda than is legal to sell in a NYC restaurant. (haha)

Gotta go, my AMERICAN day-release program requires me to be back in the padded room by 6pm (1800 hrs)

Conversely in you work in Imperial measurement its 1/2 gallon 4.5oz but oddly stil 4 pints 4.5 ozs

Having woot logos on stuff when woot was woot was kitschy, but considering the monstrosity of run-of-the-mill ecommerce it's become, it's more of a detracting factor now. Kind of like serving your guests with Overstock.com silverware.

The red one they have on the Target website is not the same red one here, but it is the same size. Same goes for the green. Here are the links:

Red 26oz Shaker

Green 26 oz Shaker

They are both $14.99

they were online but it seems the shiny ones you have are gone except for the smaller one. But today when I was in store they had the 26 oz you have for 10.98 at least in Brooklyn NY.

The density of water is pretty close to 1 in English units as well. IOW - 84.5 oz. of water weighs, pretty much, 84.5 oz. So even though it should be painfully obvious that an ounce measure of a pitcher would be liquid ounces, if you prefer to think of it as weight it really makes little difference.

Also, dividing by 32 isn't that hard.

$48 for acrylic? That's about $8 per logo on an $8 bar set.
