Benny's raises beer and marg prices, blames lime shortage

The dreaded lime shortage is hitting home -- and restaurateurs are starting to put the squeeze on customers. Not only are bartenders slicing limes thinner and thinner, but some spots are raising prices for anything that calls for the in-short-supply citrus. Benny's Restaurante y Cantina, for example, has just added 25 cents to the cost of single margaritas and all imported beers, and a buck to the cost of a margarita.

Are we going to be nickel-and-limed to death before this shortage ends?
