Pubs going bust


#488

Attending another BYOD event last night. I say another because that’s the 4th time in about 2 months.
BYOD becoming very popular out here in the sticks. Pubs could be in for further trouble.

In a venue, or someone’s house?


#490

Venues. Coffee shops and pizza places without licenses to sell drink.

JD Wetherspoon and the battle of the beer prices

They should introduce the restrictions on a sliding scale for first time drinkers.

Can’t have them locked out of the alcohol market.

…or not locked as the case may be…

I’m currently in the 40 foot enjoying €1.25 pints.


#498

Many things I would like to call you right now. No smiley too match though.


#499

I am sitting somewhere where a pint is €10. Care to swap?


#500

Only after I’ve spent €10.
Currently at €3.75.

#501

But I have “thrice-cooked chips”


#502

For quadruple the price !

:smiley:


#503

For some crazy reason the chips are only £5. Probably to make me feel better about my £14 cocktail.


#504

Stay sober

I like the way the Mail tells you the recipe will burn your house down, then gives you the recipe.


#506

What kind of pints?

This concept would be alien to Irish businesses.

How can you reduce prices and increase profits (head explodes)
