Place seems very empty the last few days. No Cafe visitors for some grub and a drink?

If you had not tried to stop in, the web pages were all down all day yesterday...no forums at all.
Kitties make wonderful traveling companions on your journey through life.

Have made a few friends in this life.
Most were cats.

That gave us a bit of a chance to do a bit of re-stocking, training a few new bar staff. Those Wombats were hard work compared to the Koala...

Your food is down to the catering staff, not the bar staff.

Monday did mutter something, but I didn't quite catch what he said....

The bottled is 1st Class in good company, but the draught has a slight edge :-)

Just don't drive home again drunk.

(Do bars in Belgium, or anywhere else in Europe, do like some American bars and take your keys if you're obviously drunk so they don't get sued?)

Our government is introducing an alcohol lock to put in cars. First you have to blow and when you had too much alcohol, you can't start your car anymore. I think that would be quite effective. Me, I never drink and drive!

Those exist here, but only as punishment for those who have already been convicted of drunk driving and who can't carry on their daily lives without their cars or for repeat offenders after their license is reinstated. There was even a public service announcement last year that featured it as a bad status symbol. (Guy and hot girl get in his car, he has to blow to start it, she realizes he's a creep and leaves.)

Good for you Julie nor do I. This is a good idea, in principle and I support it. But what if some drunk driver gets a passer by to blow into the device for €20 so he can get home? It won't be a catch all.

Haven't thought of that. And people do a lot for money, that's also true...

Not a good idea.

Agreed Mike, but I still think that the principle is sound. It will stop a proportion of drivers getting behind the wheel when drunk. Even just 1 might save a life.
