Can comedy clubs legally require food/beverage purchases?
I went to a local comedy club this weekend, and while I wasn't in the mood to eat or drink anything at all, I was told that I HAD to purchase at least "two items." The cheapest thing on the menu was a bottle of water for $3.95. I thought this was ridiculous that they required such a thing, but decided to obey rather than stir the pot. I guess the worst thing they could have done would have been to ask me to leave - but I paid for price of admission (ticket). Is it legal for them to require a minimum purchase in their venue??
