I know, right?
I was a server at a fancy Italian restaurant during college and people would order White Zin all the time. So what I'd do is leave the table and instead of brining WZ, I'd bring them a taste of a different sweet white wine. They were only ordering WZ because they don't know anything else. 9 out of 10 times they'd order the other wine, pay more money, and thank me for it because I opened their eyes.
When I go to restaurants and they have a beer that I've never tried, I will always try it. If I have a choice, I rarely order the same thing over and over again unless I need something I am comfortable with for whatever reason.
