Go back to Russia

So, a small bar owner is calling for other small bars to be prevented from opening in his area, because $10 cocktails. Jeezus after fighting restrictive legislation for a decade, the sector is now calling for legislation to prevent people from opening? It’s a perfect storm all right. A perfect storm of fuck off back to the Soviet Union comrade. Un fucking believable. I think this is from the West. I didn’t check. I was in a small bar.

    I did once get them to reconstruct the Gore Vidal recipe for a razzledazzle at 399 …

    I’ve never been able to forgive that plonker for making the booth tables too small. They’re like a metre away from the seat. What the fuck am I supposed to do with my elbows? I should’ve guessed he’d be a communist.

    If you want to run a business where government licensing stops any competition and guarantees customers are forced to pay inflated prices buy a taxi plate. Oh hang on …

      Little bit more complicated than that RWL , involving , inter alia , guaranteed supply of Indian taxi drivers during the mining boom , thanks Lannie McT. As Lenin or was it François de Charette , who know history forgotten, who decried ” without an omelette, heads will roll and mighty engines of vibrancy will fail , this is war”. So up over the parapets vibrancy warriors and no whinging “Oo, I think I’m going to go broke” and face the machine guns.

    So a posse of black marines from the uss belleau wood rocks up dressed in $500 Harlem Globetrotters singlets dripping gold bling surrounded by st Hilda’s leavers and Perth small bars deny them entry? Really?

    What a morose bastard that guy looks. No doubt he had a hand in the politkovskaya hit.

    Listen boris: Just being small is not enough; bar needs to be good. I don’t remember the folks at the glengarry tavern carrying on about perfect storms and High unemployment during the Keating recession and calling for intervention. Or the guys running the Knutty in North Perth. Nyet. That’s business.

    Forgot to fill in the name field in my rage. That comment was me.

      One does feel a bit sorry for the barkeeps like mr 399 . His standards are so high one must never trifle with his mixologists over the contents of an echt martini .

      But grog is so expensive in Australia that basing a profit margin on slinging decent cocktails esp after the g f c is quite starry eyed .

      We always stand at the bar at 399 in case a quick departure is called for .

    If the dying small bars served Ernest Hemingway’s daiquiri they wouldn’t be whingeing:


  10. Zuben says:

    Daiquiris were the favourite cocktail of jackie Kennedy . Most Europeans found her a bit mannish

    I look forward to The West interviewing the proprietor of an Inglewood massage parlour complaining that there are too many rug-and-tug establishments opening on Beaufort Street and that there should be some sort of quota for topless hand shandies to stop oversupply reducing their margins.
