There's a pretty direct link between drink prices and how much people drink. The problem is that it is exactly opposite to the relationship that the control freak do-gooders wish it was: the higher the price, the more is consumed, until you get to Finland where the prices are the highest and pretty much everyone is pretty much drunk most of the time.

But then it's dark most of the time too so no-one notices. ;D.

My brother in law, who is a C.A. once pointed out to me that the best time to invest in Alcohol distillers is during tough times financially. Once the economy recovers switch your investments to Breweries.

This week the theme is ALCOHOL, following the news that I will be paying more for my binge drinking thanks to this Alliance government that nobody voted for.


You can drink as much as you like without getting drunk - just don't swallow.  :uglystupid2:

I think that only works for marijuana. :dance:

Yes there are happy hours and shots promotions etc. That said I know my youngest barely drinks when she goes out because of the cost. That said her and her mates down some stuff before they go out! :o

My oldest, in his early 30's doesn't drink at all, and never has. Of which I'm very glad, since he's decedent from a family of alckies on both sides.  :(

Do they allow "happy hours" with discount drink prices?  They do not here, if you set a price, it must remain that price for the rest of the day. 



So Happy Hour is 11:00 to midnight then?  :legit:


Some of the places that cater to adults go with half price bar food as a draw instead. What they'd refer to as 'finger' foods.

I was working on an entry, but it turned out to be...well, just bad.  I had a wine glass,  with wine,  and grapes, but I do not have anywhere that there is not too much stuff reflected in the glass!  It was very frustrating.  I was working on a low key still life of red wine and grapes...and me, the floor, a chair, etc in the glass.
