We haven't bought drinks for anyone at the bar. We have taken our turn buying a bottle of wine at dinner when we were traveling with several friends.

That depends on what she looks like and how friendly she is. Oh, by the way, I'm unattached.

we travel with friends/family and we either take turns buying drinks or each couple puts their drinks on their own cards.

I have never bought anyone drinks, but after joining a team in "the Quest" game, I was bought drinks after contributing a very important item, ha ha.

The more you drink, the more attractive she gets.

trip:

A couple bottles of excellent wine or a few choice cognacs or scotch will eat that up in a hurry.

I almost always travel alone and meet wonderful couples - the man "insists" on buying drinkgs night after night. I usually tip off the waiter that "this round's on me" before I sit down to join them. If that fails, I always buy them something on shore - a bottle of their favorite liquor or something I think they might enjoy.

Some nights I order a bottle of champagne after dinner and have my new friends enjoy it with me.

belqique;

Would you happen to be from Petoskey , Michigan. If you are that is wonderful town.
I spent many years in the Royal Oak area , I've been in that part of Michigan several
times.
