OK .. you made my point .. And EVERYONE realizes that $5 was not the price .. that's why I said AVERAGE.I don't drink alcohol. I will buy others a drink and not all drinks are $5. Some more and some might be less. Depends on the place itself. If it's really a nice enough of a place people may spend a little more for a drink. Some places the drinks are super cheap and in such cases those places barely make a profit or last long.
You seemed to miss (AS YOU ALWAYS DO) the bottom line that it generally isn't profitable for places to pay a DJ for a Monday night .. PERIOD.
