So it sticks to the bottom of my glass and the girl next to me decides to show me how to make it stop sticking to my glass. 3 pounds of salt on the napkin and table later and the bartender gives me the evil eye...

The bartender is mad at you for not having proper coasters at his establishment! Shame on you!

BW3 always salts my napkins. I'm all like.. WTF???

"Keeps the napkin from sticking to the glass!"

I'm not even sure why I need a napkin in the first place. It's not like I'm going to even set my beer down...

Personally, I just drink with the napkin stuck to the bottom of my glass. If someone asks, I just claim that my beverage is "modest".

My pinky finger is trained to kick off any unwanted napkins as I pick up a beer. And a napkin gets one chance with me. After that, sorry, the bar is durable and can handle a little moisture. I can't imagine bartenders care if they have to wipe off a few condensation rings, so I'm sure that the napkin thing is done for the customer's sake; so that they feel like it is a classy joint.

If I am given a napkin for my beer I promptly use it to blow my nose.

That's why it sticks.

Nothing wrong with a little salt on the napkin... Then again, the bars I frequent tend to be old wood tables (they don't care about spills) or nice wood that has a good ol varnish that is essentially waterproof. Either way, napkins tend to be unnecessary.
