Yeah, Virginia's getting that way too, but slowly. Northern Virginia's more civilized than us backwoods folks, and I know they already have some of those laws in place.

I'd rather drink at home with friends and be able to enjoy a nice conversation, instead of trying to shout above a noisy room full of people.

Of course, inviting friends over usually involves riding horses, eating lots of good food, and some adult beverage intake, so it's not just about drinking.

Yup its hilarious like the chances were if the pubs were open you wouldnt go!
On stephens day and christmas eve the place is craaazy because of being closed the day before!

Drink is not aloud to be sold after 10 o'clock here which caused more outrage as well.

We also have no indoor smoking which is great if you dont want to stink

I am not a drinker. I rarely drink any alcohol. I sometimes like to go out to see a band or a show or such.

Hahaha sorry Im just laughing coz here in Oz it is now illegal ($2000 fine) if you smoke in pubs, clubs, outdoor cafes, some parking lots unless signed that its a smoking zone. Which is a bit sad admiteddly......I mean half the fun of going to a pub is suddenly becoming asthmatic right???? xD

Well I'll admit, I'm a drinker/partier, but not a club/bar hopper. We usually throw the parties at our house and have a bonfire and loud music since we live in the country. But no one leaves, everyone brings a tent, sleeps on the couch, or the spare bedroom. So we try to be responsible about it...and to everyone who complains about the hangovers, maybe need to get a lil Captain in ya...I can honestly say I've never had a hangover from it

I'm not a heavy drinker but I'm certainly not against drinking. If we have friends over or go to a friend's house there will be all sorts of alcohol available but nobody will feel the need to overdo it.

I have kids and so do most of the people we are friends with, so while all of us will have a few drinks it's nothing that would leave us incapable of driving since if we get together, we always have all the kiddos with us. You just never know when a kiddo will decide that in the middle of a party is a *great* time to inform you that they don't feel well, are struggling to breathe and need a trip to the ER (been there!).

the paradox I find amusing is at 18 fresh out of hi school
with no true experiences of life as an adult you are allowed
to vote for people who control almost every aspect of your life
and who have the power to turn this world into a cinder.
You are allowed to join the military service and be thrust into
places where you can die for your country.

but you can not legality buy a beer.

yeah its odd right :) I have often wondered that myself......
Its a bit like owning gin/whisky stills in Oz is totally banned. Sure they tell us its dangerous but never once did I see the still blow up on M*A*S*H....NOT ONCE so how dangerous can it be???
I think its just coz the goverment isnt making money out it LOL
