I’m not quite sure how I feel about this, or whether I should laugh or cry. The Paul Frank stores around the country are holding voter registration drives between September 23 and October 20. That’s all well and good, and I applaud that effort. But according to the SFist (and thanks to Motor for bringing this to my attention), today (and today only apparently, from 3-6 pm), the San Francisco location (262 Sutter Street) is giving free Budweiser in exchange for you registering to vote. While beer being used to get people to vote has a long and storied history, I was fairly certain it’s frowned upon these days. Didn’t Michel Moore get into hot water for giving underwear away for the same thing? But if Paul Frank is going to get in trouble for giving away beer, I wish it was for at least a neutral or tastier beer.
